Whether they are insects or rodents, pests are opportunists. When it comes to a warm place to sleep or their next meal, most pests can survive in the wild, but they thrive indoors! With a constant stream of food and water, along with protection from predators (except household cats, of course!), there is no better place for a mouse to call home than a cozy kitchen. This is bad enough in a home, but in a workplace, it is even worse! Shared areas like restaurants, commercial kitchens and even schools, hotels or hospitals feed up to hundreds of people. This means that one rogue mouse can mean a lot of illness and damage. Don’t let intruders with four (or more) legs ruin your reputation when our Toodaloo technicians can get rid of them for you.
No matter what type of industry you are in, there is always competition. No one wants to see spider webs clogging up shop windows, silverfish scuttling around bookstores or rodents running through restaurants. The success of any business depends on keeping structures pest free. A single glimpse of an uninvited guest can alienate potential customers and lead to some pretty terrible online reviews. This is true of anywhere but the food industry requires even more care.
Professionals in the food industry are proud of the work that they do and there are plenty of people who depend on them. This is what makes proper pest control so important. Setting out a few traps or baits might catch an ant or two but when it comes to more stubborn pests, there is heavy artillery needed. In addition to needing speciality tools, the removal process means assessment and aftercare. In a busy environment, there is hardly time to schedule repeat appointments or deal with the disappointment of a job poorly-done. Luckily, our Toodaloo technicians have the experience and training to not only remove pests but to pin-point where they are getting in, preventing future infestations.
Instead of ignoring insect intruders, property owners and managers should call proper pest control immediately. The right technique not only means getting rid of everything from rats to roaches but it means keeping them away! Depending on what type of infestation you are dealing with, a few changes in your environment might encourage them to move out on their own but a bit of incentive doesn’t hurt either! When dealing with spiders for example, removing food sources might drive them to find a new place to spin their webs. In an ideal world, this would be the case for every type of pest but for those stubborn live traps and eco-friendly options are readily available.
