Pests & Your Store: Steps to Dealing with an Invasion

Dealing with Pests at Your Business or Store | Clegg’s Pest Control

Prevent Pests In Your StorePests in your store can seriously damage your business. Depending on the type of pest, they can eat or destroy your stock. And your customers might catch sight of these pests and leave without making a purchase. If this happens, word of mouth might prevent new customers from coming to your store. If you are running a restaurant or other food-services business, you might find yourself with a negative health report from the country agency. Sometimes despite your best efforts, your store might find an invasion of pests creeping into the business. Here are the steps for dealing with a pest invasion.

A Thorough Cleaning
Your first step when pests invade your business is to clean your business from top to bottom. All pests need a food and water source to survive and thrive so if you remove what is attracting them, they will go away. You will also want to sweep and mop the floors. You will want to wipe down all of your shelves, and make sure there is not any food loose around the break area or kitchen. Many common pests thrive in a moist environment, so you will want to dry the areas you wash with a towel to eliminate any excess water or moisture.

How Did They Get Into Your Store?
Pests are adept at finding ways into your store. In many cases, they are looking for a new food source or to get out of hot or cold outside temperatures. Once you notice a pest has made its way into your store, you will want to locate how it got in and close it off. Common pantry pests, like Indianmeal moths and weevils, usually come into your store in food supplies. Carefully examine your food stock to determine the source. Once you find the infested product, throw away all unused product and clean out the container with hot, soapy water. Other pests like flies or rodents might come in through a window, partially opened door or other entry point. Once you locate the entry point, you will want to seal it off to ensure no more pests can enter that way.

Traps And Bait
You can set out some traps or sticky paper to catch the pests. There are several brands and natural remedies on the market too. However, if you are running a restaurant, you will not want to spray your business with an insecticide without the help of a professional pest control service. A pest control company will know the kinds of pesticides that can be safely used in your business and they can take care of the problem for you.

To contact a professional pest control service that can take care of your invasion problems, contact Clegg’s online or phone at 888-672-5344.
