Too many insects crawling around your business is an instant turn-off for your clients and your workforce. This is especially true for creatures such as ants and spiders, which disturb people in rather distinct ways.
The biggest issue with an ant infestation is the multitude. Ants are always found in colonies, consisting of a queen, worker females, and short-lived males. Much like how your business runs smoothly and efficiently, ants work in sync to guide each other to new food sources through the use of pheromone trails. These trails can last for a long time, which means that if they’ve found food in your workplace, the ants will have a reliable path shepherding them into your business.
One of the best ways to prevent an ant infestation in the workplace is by ensuring that no open food is left where the ants can easily access it. Encourage employees to keep their food in airtight containers, to eat in the allocated kitchen or break rooms, and to keep their work space clean and tidy. If you find yourself with an infestation anyways, then it’s time to call the Calgary pest control experts.
On the other side of the spectrum, spiders tend to be rather solitary creatures that only bite when threatened. You might see increased spider activity in your business as the weather cools off as spiders seek out warmth and search for mates. While spiders are known to inspire anxiety and fear in many people, they are largely harmless. However, if you are concerned about an influx of spider sightings or the possible presence of venomous spiders in your business, then it’s best to contact a pest control company for help.
