Why Proactive Pest Control Matters

People often ignore the opportunity to put a pest control plan in place, thinking it’s not important because they don’t have an infestation problem.

Well, plenty of times we have seen the result of clients failing to implement a proactive pest control plan, and we can assure you that it is not a pretty sight. Here are just some of the most important reasons for having a pest management plan in place.

  1. It is much easier to keep pests away than it is to get rid of them once they’ve decided to move in. Rat and mice are adept at finding their way into very small spaces and making themselves at home. The cost to remove them and to ensure they don’t return is likely to be much higher than the cost of having regular checks by professionals to monitor any signs of activity and rid your property of any pests before they fully establish themselves.

  2. You will avoid damage to your property. Rodents can chew through cables and wiring, causing damage to electrical equipment and creating a fire hazard. Rats in particular have strong jaws and will make short work of anything chewable!

  3. You will avoid potential health risks. Pest carry diseases that can transfer to people - this is especially true of rodents, who multiply rapidly, and can also spread disease through their droppings. Keep your colleagues safe by having bait boxes installed and monitored regularly so that the threat of rodent infestations is minimalised.

  4. It will ensure your peace of mind, knowing that trained professionals are keeping a close eye out for any unwanted visitors and dealing with them safely before they cause damage.
