There are many ways pests can impact businesses in The Woodlands. Every business in our service area has its own challenges. What challenges are you having? Today, we're going to talk about pest problems that are universal to all businesses in The Woodlands, and discuss the best way to address them. As always, if you need immediate assistance with a commercial pest problem, you can reach us through our contact page. With that said, let's get into it.


Before pests become a problem inside your business, they come onto your property and explore your exterior. Here are a few attractants that should be addressed, and which pests may be drawn to them.

  • Garbage. The scent of garbage will lure flies and other pests onto your property. Keep garbage sealed in receptacles and keep receptacles free of strong odors.
  • Food. Birdseed, grass seed, acorns, and fruit, are all natural food sources for a wide range of pests, including mice, rats, and squirrels. Keep these away from the exterior of your business.
  • Light. Insects are attracted to light. This is a particular problem around entryways. Replace white light with yellow light to reduce this attractant.
  • Rotting wood. Termites, carpenter ants, rodents, and other pests will be drawn to your property if you have any areas of rotting wood.
  • Moisture. Centipedes, millipedes, silverfish, and other moisture pests are drawn to damp habitats. Clean your gutters and make repairs to downspouts and splash blocks to reduce moisture in your perimeter.

A commercial applicator can help you deal with conditions that are difficult to control by applying treatments to your exterior, and also in key areas, such as trash receptacles housing. If you have rodent pressures, tamper-resistant traps can be deployed to catch and remove them.


Before pests get into your business or start to present a problem on your property, they often find places to hide. Here are a few harborage options to consider, and which pests take advantage of them.

  • Vegetation. Many pests, such as mosquitoes and roaches, get into vegetation and hide. You can deter these pests by removing weeds and grass, and by keeping your plants as healthy as possible.
  • Voids underneath structures. Mice, rats, and many other pests will use the voids underneath structures as a hiding place. Removing leaves and organic debris can deter them.
  • Organic and man-made objects. While pests prefer to hide in stacked wood, dead branches, leaf piles, and grass clippings, they'll also hide underneath a plastic container, wood pallet, cardboard, and many other man-made objects. Remove clutter to deter pest activity.

A commercial applicator can help you bolster your defenses by applying exclusions, and by treating key areas with a knockdown agent.

Entry Points

When pests explore the exterior of your business, they can accidentally find their way inside. Address these common troubles spots to keep pests out of your business.

  • Damaged screens
  • Missing door sweeps
  • Old weatherstripping
  • Rotted wood
  • Gaps around utilities
  • Doors left open

A commercial applicator can seal entry points and apply appropriate products to stop pests before they enter your business. In the case of spiders, technicians remove webs and egg sac which can contain hundreds of spiders in them. This reduces the population—and also gets rid of those unsightly webs.
