Orlando, FL, April 23, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Seeing a bug or rodent in a business establishment can send chills down a customer’s spine. A 2006 survey of restaurant diners revealed that 60% of them would tell at least five people about a pest sighting at a restaurant. In fact, nearly 30% of the survey respondents said they wouldn’t return to a restaurant if they saw a cockroach. In today’s world, one Tweet or Facebook post about an incident like this could spiral out of control, ruining a business’ livelihood.
“Business owners need to protect their office buildings or restaurants by inspecting them to see how pests are gaining access. They need to check trash cans, drains, pipes, electrical outlets, and any crevices where pests could hide,” says Pro-Staff Termite and Pest Control Company’s CEO, Robert D. Welch “Cracks, crevices, or holes that may allow pests to enter should be sealed. Maintaining a regular cleaning schedule will also help, especially in areas where pests can hide.”
Pests can crawl or fly into any restaurant or office building. Fruit flies will feast on food left on a desk overnight. Fungus gnats are attracted to over-watered plants. Beetles and moths will devour partly-opened snacks left in a desk drawer. Ants are prominent in the summer when they seek shelter from the rain. Most species of cockroaches live outside but can slide under doors in an office building, or enter through underground parking lots to invade a commercial building. Rats and mice squeeze into holes or under doors, looking to eat food, paper, fabric, or plastic.
More and more businesses are using the services of a pest control company to ensure that their buildings are pest-free and customer-friendly.
