What’s one thing that can ruin an otherwise spectacular guest experience? A single pest sighting.
No guest wants to run across pests on your property, and just seeing a rodent or bug may be enough to drive them away from your business for good. What’s more, these unwanted visitors can cause massive amounts of structural damage around your facility—and once they’re in, pests can be tough to get out.
Fortunately, there are a few things you can do stop them in their tracks. After decades in the business, Orkin Canada has learned the exact shortcomings that can put any facility at increased risk for pests.

- Gaps around doors and windows
- Torn window screens
Additionally, you’ll want to check for interior deficiencies, including:
- Open doors
