Rodents are a significant issue in warehouses and large commercial buildings. The large spaces contain hard to reach areas where mice and rats love to hide. And rodents, especially rats, are a problem you want to deal with as quickly as possible. It’s estimated that just two rats in an ideal environment can multiply into 482 million rats over a time frame of three years. For those looking for pest control in Bowie, and nearby areas, Raven Termite and Pest Control offers solutions for commercial clients.
How to Prevent a Rodent Infestation
There are certain tasks you can take on to help prevent a rodent infestation. First, sealing the building is key. Rodents access your commercial space through holes, so plugging holes with steel wool or patching holes up will reduce the risk of a rodent infestation.
Next, ensure you keep all food stored securely and clean up water sources in and around your building. Keep all garbage and compost in containers with tight-fitting lids. If possible, keep the garbage and compost bins a good distance from the building. A leaky pipe is a source of water for rodents. As long as rodents have the water and food they need, the infestation will continue to grow.
Lastly, move items around frequently to avoid nesting areas. Rodents will use materials such as dried plant matter, leaf piles, fabric, and shredded paper to make nests. This applies for both inside and outside of your building.
Professional Pest Control Services
If you have noticed you have a rodent problem, it’s time to call in a professional pest control company. Rodent infestations spread quickly and can cause damage to your building, your supplies, your inventory, and can hurt your company’s reputation if customers see the rodents around. A professional exterminator will be able to identify the point of access for the rodents, where they are sourcing their food and water, and their nesting spots. A professional exterminator eliminates your current rodent problem and suggests additional solutions so a new infestation does not occur.
