Have mice or other rodents invaded your business or commercial building? Rodent infestations are a surefire way to discourage clientele from visiting your location, which means that you’ll be losing traffic and business fast.
Beyond giving potential customers a bad impression of your building and therefore your business, rodents also cause property damage and hazards by chewing through walls, wires, and important work documents. This can cost your business a lot in the long run, so it’s important to undertake pest control measures promptly and efficiently.
Hosting a rodent infestation in your commercial or office building can also pose significant health risks to employees and to customers. Rodents are known to carry diseases, parasites, and bacteria that can result in Lyme disease, rat bite fever, or even Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS). Humans can contract these illnesses and others through direct contact, food contamination, and through the droppings that rodents leave behind.
Due to a rapid breeding cycle, even a seemingly harmless rodent infestation can very quickly become a huge and extensive problem. This problem can be worsened by a lack of prevention techniques, such as leaving out food that signals to rodents that your space is good to invade.
