Professional Pest Control For Your Construction Project
Pest control during building projects can be challenging – with a structure in progress it’s easy for rodents, insects, and birds to make their way in through open walls or unsealed gaps. Equipment, building materials, and workers must also be kept safe from pests.
Mice, rats, and squirrels tear apart exposed insulation to use as bedding for nests. They also chew on wires within incomplete structures, causing electrical shorts, which in turn puts construction sites at increased risk of fire.
Rat and mouse droppings can contaminate materials with dangerous diseases such as leptospirosis and hantavirus. This puts workers at risk, and can lead to lost productivity and more expenses.
Insects like termites, carpenter ants, and old house borer beetles infest timber and wood products at construction sites and damage materials. They also reproduce inside the wood, which leads to future problems when the insects emerge.
Termites and beetles chew tunnels into wood, weakening the structure over time. Termites also cultivate a moist environment that encourages mold, mildew, and rot. Carpenter ants cause widespread damage when they build nests in wooden structures or pallets of lumber.
Meanwhile, birds perch and roost on exposed beams and rafters, leaving droppings that foul the area and damage equipment below. Accumulations of bird droppings also cultivate the histoplasmosis fungus, which can cause respiratory illness in humans.
Dealing with pest birds can also be difficult, due to the Migratory Birds Convention Act which protects certain species from trapping and relocation practices. Any attempt to remove a pest bird must also comply with the Canada Wildlife Act.
While common-sense precautions can go a long way toward safeguarding a construction site from pests, long-term protection is difficult to achieve without expert assistance. Construction companies often have projects in varied environments that call for different approaches.
For these reasons, it’s best to hire a professional pest control service, with the specialist knowledge and time to not only deal with any existing pests and current risk of infestation in line with all regulations, but also implement measures to guard against future pest activity.

Our technician is awesome. Thanks for making the transition easy. Love the metrics and transparency of the program.
Our technician was very informative and took the time to explain the problem I was having with rodents and how they react to Orkin's product. His personal care made my situation so much easier.
Our representative is very informative and quickly goes about his work. I am very pleased with his explanation for placing bait stations where he did and so on. Sometimes it is hot and he carries right on with what he has to do. It is a nasty job.
