The Importance of Commercial Pest Control

 In News

As the owner of a business, you, no doubt, have plenty on your plate.  From balancing inventory to ensuring that your customers have a rewarding experience, you have a lot on your mind.  Since brain space is limited, there isn’t a whole lot of room to deal with a pest infestation, or worse yet, the fallout from having one.  Come join us today, as we delve into the importance of a commercial pest control defense plan, and why it just may be worth it to have the professionals take care of it.

As a cardinal rule, businesses should do their best to keep pests out of the door, and for a variety of good reasons.  From the PR-side (people posting online about how your business is infested with roaches) to the logistical side (mice and rats have been known to gnaw through just about anything), a pest infestation could mean a great deal of loss.  No matter the venue—restaurant, gift shop, grocery store, or even a multi-apartment building—owners should strive for the best when it comes to pest defense.

So with that being said, why not just go down to your local hardware store, buy a few cans of insect repellent, and go to town when you notice that pests are becoming a regular customer?  Well, the answer lies in the question.  By the time you notice that you have a pest problem, chances are that your customers and clients have noticed as well, and that certainly does not bode well for business.  Not only that, but buying your own pesticides can prove to be ineffective in the long run, and here’s why: In order to have an effective removal strategy, you need to be able to both identify the type of pest, and use the corresponding treatment without going overboard—as too much of those canned pesticides can pose as a health risk.  Sure, it may be the cheaper option than hiring a professional, but since the DIY-route has a higher rate of ineffectiveness, your dollar may be better allocated to the professionals, since they will ensure that the pest will be gone without doing harm to your place of business.

However, all of this can be avoided if a regular pest-defense plan is put in place.  As the saying goes, and ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.  We know that you take pride in your business, so why not protect your investment with a pest-defense plan from Tri-County Pest Control?  It just may be the best form of insurance you can buy.
