Most business owners are already aware of the fact that a rodent infestation will reflect poorly on their enterprise, but many are still unaware of the risks related to the legal codes. It is possible to lose a business license over a rodent infestation, for example. The business owner can not underestimate the potential amount of damage to personal finances as well as the ability to earn an income. In addition, there could be legal fines and fees that must be paid to the city. The total losses could be devastating, and this type of setback is not easily overcome. Understanding the nature of the risk can help the business owner to make a speedy decision about how to overcome the rodent infestation, and contacting a professional commercial pest control company is the right move.
Preventing Rodent Infestations
In the world of pest control, an ounce of prevention is worth much more than a pound of cure. If you are aware of the kinds of things that attract rodents to your property, there is still a chance that you can prevent the infestation from happening at all. This is the best possible outcome, so we encourage business owners to observe the following precautions at all times:
- Be aware of every part of the business where trash is being stored, and make sure these containers are sealed. Rodents are attracted to the smell of rotting food and other substances that are found in trash containers.
- If your business has any type of food storage, make sure that you seal all food items in air-tight containers. Grease should be stored in a metal bin that has an air-tight lid, and this substance can be recycled.
- Keep the dumpster or trash bins clear of trash that might fall to the ground. This can draw the attention of rodents. If possible, use a trash compactor because this will reduce the likelihood of a rodent infestation.
