The Consequences of Ignoring Pests

Inside retail building

One bug or mouse doesn’t seem like that big of a deal. They’re hundreds or thousands of times smaller than we are, and really, what harm can they do? When it comes to your business, pests are capable of a lot of truly destructive things. One unwelcome visitor can already do a lot more damage than you think, and if they show up in a group, things can get bad for your business in very little time. Call a commercial pest control service like Command7 to save yourself time, money, and headaches fixing these big problems from tiny intruders.

Reputation

Word of mouth travels much more quickly than it used to with the Internet. With the ability to leave comments on your business on review websites, blogs, and social media accounts, it won’t take long for the evening news or even the world to know if a pest has been spotted in your business. What’s more is that reputations take a while to build, but can be destroyed near-instantly, even before facts are confirmed. Pest activity matters to customers and potential customers, and reports of pests, let alone actual sightings, will keep people from walking in the door, let alone staying.

Health

It’s no secret that pests are damaging, but they also come with health risks for you, your employees, and your customers. Rats, mice, houseflies, and cockroaches can all carry various diseases that can damage someone’s health in dramatic ways: they might carry bacteria in on their feet, leave their droppings behind, contaminate the air around them, or bite someone. Some bites, shedding, or stinging could also cause an allergic reaction, which could lead to anaphylactic shock in some people. Remember that you’re liable for what happens in your business: if you allow pests to roam your business unchecked and they hurt someone, you could be exposed to regulatory sanctions, fines, or even closures. Be proactive about protecting yourself and your business with Command7 commercial pest control.

Infrastructure

Pests aren’t considerate of you or your property, and if they want something, they’ll get it. Whether they’re looking for shelter, food, water, or nesting materials, there’s no limit to what pests will do to your building and your products. They will live in your nooks and crannies, chew through everything from wood and insulation to drywall and electrical lines, contaminate your supplies, and otherwise threaten the integrity of your building and how it works. Worse yet, damage to your building can destroy its value and, if you wait for too long, the cost to repair it can increase. It’s important to address your need for commercial pest control while the problem is small enough to be manageable: preventative measures are better than trying to fix a larger problem. However, when it comes to getting pests out of your business, late is better than never. Your bottom line will thank you.
