Pests never take a vacation. While the variety of vermin may vary from season to season, as a whole, they’re a problem year-round for commercial office buildings — from the breakroom to the board room. But just who are these full-time menaces and what can you do to stop them?
The latest office buzz — mosquitos and flies are in season. Make sure your tenants keep their breakrooms clean and free of tempting food waste.
While your tenants’ employees are out on vacation, rodents, ants and fleas have the run of the office. Look for exterior cracks that these pests use to sneak inside and escape the cold.
When the days get shorter, the list of pests seeking shelter indoors gets longer. Similar to Autumn, rodents and ants are on the lookout for a way inside, so make sure your building is sealed up tight during the Winter months.
Asian Lady Beetles, Fire Ants and Carpenter Bees — just a few of the many pests you might discover during Spring cleaning. Trim back problematic foliage and repair any exterior damage the colder weather may have caused.
No matter how hard you try to keep them out, pests will always find a way in. That’s why it’s so important to have a robust Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program for your building. To learn more about how you can reduce your pest occupancy, download “Year-Round Office Pests.”
