Cockroaches are unwelcome anywhere but how do we get rid of them at the office? At Genesis Pest Control we have been managing these pests as well as many other unwanted office visitors for many years. Some things never change over the years, and one is the cockroach.
For the health and well-being of your employees, customers, and visitors, you need to keep pests from invading your office. There are many ways to control them such as, cleaning up after your employees, and this typically means hiring a commercial pest control company or janitorial service. The best way to stop pests is prevention and that means daily cleaning and regular pest control.
Identify and eliminate problem areas. It’s important to keep an eye on the places where office pests are likely to gather. Kitchens and trashcans are common problematic areas because they provide plentiful food sources for cockroaches and rats, while bathrooms may potentially be harboring pests because of all the water. Move the furniture around and look behind everything for signs of nest activity. Knowing what you’re up against is the first step towards applying the correct control treatment.
Most office pests can enter the building the same way as you do – through the front door. However, given their tiny size, they can also make use of the cracks and holes in the walls or pipes that come through a wall of floor and aren’t sealed properly. If necessary, our experts at Genesis Pest Control use caulk and foam insulation to cover any holes and crevices that might harbor pests.
Clean Up Often
It is essential that your office be regularly cleaned. Ensure that your employees and customers throw away their trash by setting up convenient trashcans throughout the office. Without access to food or trash, pests are more likely to move on.
Hire Pest Control
Whether your office has had a problem with pests or not, it is a good idea to have a pest control expert on hand. These professionals will know the correct areas of your office to inspect, and they will know what a pest or cockroach infestation looks like. Ask your pest control experts if there are maintenance and pest management programs set up to control the pests that might try to invade your office.
