JANUARY 27 2022 /
When it comes to commercial properties or government facilities, COVID-19 has had a huge impact not only on the performance and processes of each organization, but also has provided opportunities for rodents and other pests to replace workers in offices, warehouses, and other businesses.
Many of the larger corporate accounts that we service were unaware of the impact that the live plants and food being stored in their staffs' office spaces would have once everyone started working from home.
As a result, a lot of government facilities and commercial properties now have severe rodent and insect infestations that need to be taken care of before employees return to the office and find a mouse behind their desk or roaches all over the cabinets.
So, how can commercial businesses attack this issue and prevent pests infestations in the future? Here we'll outline why you should get a pest cleanout service and what you can do to keep them out of your workspace.
After the pandemic hit many workers left large quantities of food, candy, and potential nesting materials in their locked filing cabinets, desk, drawers, credenzas, and locked offices.
This was an invitation for mice and pantry pests to gain access through holes in the bottom of cabinets or insects that were already present in prepared foods multiply without disruption from the pre-covid day to day activities of an office.
Most manufacturers take steps when preparing their food to eliminate insect eggs and adults found during the manufacturing process, but some imported items still are very susceptible to being sold with adult bugs and/or eggs present inside the very food we consume daily.
Over the last two years, these insects have fed on the available food sources that they were shipped in and spread to other available food sources inside their desks.
*Important note: To maximize the effectiveness of a pest or rodent intensive cleanout out, it may be necessary to have a locksmith on-site to open all desks, filing cabinets, and locked offices.
Education is just as important as the removal of conducive conditions present for rodent and insect activity.
The housekeeping staff needs to follow good Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategies to reduce rodent and insect harborage areas and eliminate food sources that are helping to breed ongoing pest problems.
If you think that your commercial or government facility may be having an increase in rodent or insect activity due to a scarcity of in-person workers and potential conducive conditions present with all the stuff they left behind, give us a call today and we'll give you a free cleanout service estimate for your commercial or government facility.
