Commercial Pest Prevention Tips

As the leaves start to change and the temperatures drop, businesses across the state are preparing for the fall season. However, with the changing seasons come new challenges in pest control. To help you maintain a pest-free environment in your commercial space, we’ve compiled a list of practical pest prevention tips tailored to our region’s unique conditions.


1. Maintain Proper Sanitation

Keep your workspace clean and tidy. Regularly clean common areas, kitchens, and break rooms to eliminate food sources that attract pests like rodents and ants.

2. Outdoor Maintenance

Trim trees, shrubs, and bushes away from your building. This prevents pests from using them as bridges to access your premises.

3. Proper Waste Management

Dispose of trash promptly and securely in sealed bins. Make sure dumpsters are placed away from the building to reduce the risk of attracting pests.

4. Monitor Moisture Levels

Inspect and repair any leaks or standing water sources, as damp areas are a breeding ground for pests such as mosquitoes and termites.

5. Store Food and Supplies Properly

Ensure that all food items in the pantry or storage areas are stored in airtight containers to deter pantry pests like weevils and moths.

6. Employee Education

Educate your staff about the importance of pest prevention. Encourage them to report any pest sightings or potential problem areas promptly.
