Why would commercial buildings need pest control?

It might not be something to think about too much, but if you own or even work in a commercial building it’s important to know what pests are present and why they need pest control. A lot of people don’t realize that these types of buildings are at risk for pest infestations.

There are several reasons why pest control is needed in commercial buildings. Pest control is something that should be handled by professionals, because it’s a serious issue and could potentially cause major problems if not dealt with immediately.

First of all, pests can increase the risk of accidents occurring in commercial buildings. There are numerous reports about animals causing or contributing to traffic and pedestrian accidents each year.

The animals can get into the narrow passageways between buildings very easily and the situation might escalate out of control

Pest infestations can also cause health problems, especially for people with allergies or asthma. and rodent diseases like hantavirus, rat bite fever and leptospirosis.

In the end, pests cause a lot of damage to property, which is why pest control in commercial buildings is so important. If you own a business or work in a commercial building it’s vital that you actively work towards pest management

If rodents are multiplying around is a huge risk for businesses

They could damage business property, including furniture and equipment

This can also include vandalism. Pests have been known to chew through gas pipes, wires and phone lines, which can be extremely dangerous if left unchecked. They might go inside appliances or ventilation systems, damaging them in the process.

In most cases an infestation will become larger from year to year and the situation becomes worse with time

Some pests that need pest control in commercial buildings: cockroaches, rodents and pigeons. Rodents and pigeons both pose a risk of transmitting diseases through their droppings, urine and saliva. People in the business will have to take precautions because of this, just like people working in industrial buildings would have to take precautions because of lead dust.

Rodents are also very likely to cause fires, because they chew through insulation and electrical wires.

Pigeons can carry different types of diseases such as pigeon ornithosis, cryptococcosis and histoplasmosis.

Just like other types of buildings, commercial buildings should be regularly inspected by pest control professionals to prevent large-scale infestations or outbreaks. Look for other pest control articles online about specific pests that might need pest control in a commercial building.

We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.

We were lucky to have found Bon Accord, they responded very fast to our request and Gabriel was very helpful and informative. He made several visits and did his absolute best until the mice problem we had was gone. Highly recommended.
