Frisco Businesses and the Pests that Plague Them
There are many, many kinds of business in Frisco. No matter what your company does, you could be in danger of encountering a pest infestation. Before that happens, let’s take a look at what specific pests might cause problems for your business, then look at how to stop them.
Food and Beverage
Many businesses that deal with food and beverages, such as restaurants, bakeries, and catering companies, have to keep a careful eye out for pests. After all, many pests are attracted to the same foods that humans eat. Even with proper cleaning, storage, and preparation, pests can find even the smallest crumbs in a food-service building.
Some of the most common pests that affect food-service businesses are cockroaches, ants, and mice. These pests cause two kinds of problems. First, they destroy and contaminate products. You’ll spend a lot of money replacing food that was contaminated by one of these pests, and waste a lot of time cleaning their mess. Second, they can affect customers. If you don’t realize there’s a pest problem, customers could come in contact with dangerous bacteria and disease. And if news gets out that there are cockroaches in your business, you’ll likely lose a lot of customers before you can solve the issue.
Another common type of business is hospitality. Hotels and entertainment events all deal with a lot of people, and sometimes pets, coming in and out which can result in pests such as bed bugs and fleas. Getting rid of bed bugs or fleas with DIY methods is next to impossible.
And news of a bed bug infestation can spread almost faster than the bugs themselves. Bed bugs and fleas can cost you your reputation. You’ll likely lose past and future clients. It’s best to always be on the lookout for these and other pests so you can catch them before your guests do.
Businesses that manufacture products or store materials also have plenty of pests to worry about. Food-storage companies need to worry about pantry pests such as meal moths and weevils. Companies that work with wood need to worry about carpenter ants and termites. Even companies that deal with more robust materials need to worry about pests that can damage their facilities, pests such as birds, rodents, and spiders.
A pest infestation can set you back and cost hundreds in damage repair or material replacement. And often, in large facilities, pests won’t be noticed right away. As a result, they can cause more damage to more locations.
