How to Keep Pests Away from Your Workplace

February 11, 2020 11:19 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

When you run a business, you have an obligation to keep pests away—not just because they’re gross, carry harmful disease and can damage your facilities, but because the more you deal with insects, rodents, birds and the like, the more you risk garnering negative reviews from your clients and customers. Commercial pest elimination in Alaska is important to making sure you provide a clean, healthy environment for your guests as well as your employees.

Pest control tips for your business

Here are our best tips for keeping pests away from your workplace—and if you need help, be sure to call Pied Piper Pest Control. We’re dedicated to helping your home and business stay completely pest-free.

  • Seal up cracks and leaks: Pests get into your business through cracks and leaks in your building. Walk around and evaluate your situation, including whether you notice any drafts around your doorways and windows. Use weather-stripping or hire a professional to seal up any vulnerable areas.
  • Install non-attracting bulbs: Some pest species are attracted to light, but you can use sodium vapor bulbs to make sure you’re not advertising yourself as a great new home.
  • Get door sweeps: Door sweeps—those mini-brooms you can install on the bottom of a door—are a cheap and easy way to keep pests from making their way through the cracks.
  • Clean your floor drains: If you have floor drains, you’re probably aware that all manner of organic matter can end up there—including food and other tempting substances for pests. Make sure your maintenance crew knows that cleaning your floor drains regularly is an important part of the job.
  • Take care of your landscaping: If your landscaping is overgrown, you’re bound to attract pests—you’re providing them a safe home free of charge. Hire a landscaping company to take care of your surroundings, and speak to them about any pest control concerns you may have.
  • Standing water: Got mosquitoes? Then you probably have a source of standing water nearby. Mosquitoes can breed in standing water (and other pests, like mice and rats, can swim), so if you have a standing water source on your property, do your best to get rid of it at once.
  • Garbage and recycling: Your trash and recycling bins are magnets for pests—they contain food and other organic matter, even when you use liners. Be sure to rinse out your bins regularly to keep pests away, and always make sure you use self-sealing bins.
