2021 Pest Control Planning Tips for Businesses

The New Year is almost here! December is the perfect time for businesses to start planning for the 12 months that lie ahead. One area that businesses may not think to analyze is their pest control needs. However, with proper planning your business facility can be safer and cleaner and many pest-related business interruptions can be avoided throughout the year.

When planning for 2021, consider the following commercial pest control best practices:

  1. Be proactive, not reactive. Pest control is often not thought about until there is a pest issue. But with proper pest prevention, these pest issues can be drastically reduced. A routine visit by your commercial pest control provider not only helps prevent pest problems, but it also helps spot problems early before they become a bigger problem.
  2. Evaluate your business facility for vulnerabilities. Different types of pests can enter a structure in different ways, so it is important to consider the types of pests in your area and then analyze your facility to see where they can get in. Once these areas of vulnerability are identified, pest prevention measures can be designed and implemented.
  3. Plan for unexpected pest issues. Even with proper pest prevention measures in place, the craftiest of pests may still present a problem at times. Know who your go-to pest control expert is, ask if they offer emergency service, and have their contact information somewhere that is easily accessible for anyone at your business who may need to reach out to them.
  4. Bring your pest control provider into the planning process. They are the experts, so lean on them for guidance as to what your unique business facility needs. There’s no need to try to figure it out on your own, you have enough to do!
