Commercial Buildings

Pests are a universal threat, and once they infiltrate commercial buildings, they bring a heap of issues with them, including lethal diseases and illnesses. If you want to safeguard your reputation and business, it is worth receiving personalized solutions from a licensed commercial pest company. Here is a list of common pests that cause inconvenience to businesses.  


Carpenter ants cannot be ignored due to their size, and never underestimate these tiny critters. These giant black ants are social and audacious, so why have they been considered a pest? Unlike termites, they do not feast on wood. However, they excavate decaying and moist wood to make galleries and passageways for their colonies of about 3000 ants. They can cause immense structural damage within a matter of months. It is not worth spending money on generic pesticides to eradicate this ant specie. Only a licensed exterminator for commercial properties can inspect and treat the building appropriately.

Rats And Mice

Mice-related issues are straightforward; however, rats often go undetected until their population grows. These rodents are not just smelly but also destructive. Mice leave a trail of defecation and urine wherever they go. Like other types of pests, they need a regular water supply and food to stay alive. If they have moved into your kitchen area or pantry, everyone’s health is at risk since rats and mice are carriers of various diseases, for instance, hantavirus pulmonary syndrome.


The German roach is probably the most problematic among all roach species. Even though it is smaller than other species, it can reproduce incredibly fast, causing an upsurge in the numbers. Roaches generally spread bacteria and filth wherever they travel or live. Since they are immune to many pesticides, it is difficult to eradicate them with DIY methods. You may even end up spreading the issue further. You must hire a seasoned pest control specialist equipped with the knowledge, know-how, equipment, and chemicals to get the job done and prevent an issue in future. Roaches can hide in all sorts of hard-to-reach places. Therefore, getting rid of them all by yourself is almost impossible. 

Seasonal Pests

In some places, many insects are looking for a place to stay indoors during the cold winters. Examples include stink bugs, wasps, ladybugs, cluster flies, and silverfish. To control these invaders, inspect the sunny side of the building or areas where the lights are left on at night. Look for any openings in such areas. Insects tend to move into these holes and find a home within dark spaces. The best way to prevent them from moving into your commercial building is by sealing these areas. It is worth hiring a pest control specialist to inspect the building for any signs of pest infestations and eliminate the problem as quickly as possible.
