With cooler weather approaching, pests are looking for shelter to keep them warm and protected. Unfortunately, your place of business may look like the perfect hideout for a variety of pests including bugs, rodents, and other small animals. Keep your business protected from unwanted guests with these pest prevention tips!
Pests can get into your business from really small cracks and spaces, so it can be difficult to get rid of every entrance. However, you should do your best to seal any cracks in your foundation as well as spaces in the windows and doors. Pests can also enter through vents, so you want to keep vent covers on at all times.
You want to take care of your yard space before it gets too cold to do so. Pests hide in overgrown plants, shrubbery, and trees. They might eventually use tree branches to build a way into your business. Putting stones between the grass and your building not only helps to keep pests out, but also keeps water from getting into your building.
Pests are drawn to cluttered, unorganized spaces because it gives them more places to hide. You want to remove clutter from your business, paying close attention to back rooms and storage areas that are easily cluttered. Keep all your necessary inventory off the ground with shelving and storage spaces.
Consumer businesses accumulate a lot of trash throughout the day. It is important to set up and enforce a system for trash removal so that it never accumulates inside of your facility. Businesses should have an outdoor dumpster with a lid located reasonably close so that trash can easily be taken out on a regular basis.
