But just in case you’re still not convinced that your business needs regular pest control provided by professionals, we have some information that you’ll find useful.

The Top Pests That Affect Area Businesses

Some of the top pests in Houston that can invade businesses include: 

  • Cockroaches
  • Rodents
  • Termites
  • Mosquitoes

Each of these pests can cause a huge range of problems for any working business, even if your property doesn’t need to serve in-person customers daily.

Food service businesses, for one, are legally required to resolve infestations to stay in operation, and a warehouse can suffer serious damage from all kinds of pests over time, especially if that damage is going unnoticed for days or even weeks at a time.

Mosquitoes, in particular, present a real problem for customer-facing businesses, making your property an unpleasant place to be, as well as bringing the threat of disease, which just isn’t something customers want from their shopping experience or office visit. Now let’s explore how ignoring a pest problem can lead to serious costs. 

The Hidden Costs Of Ignoring Pest Infestations In A Business

The costs that can be caused or worsened by pest infestations fall into the following categories: revenue loss, decreased foot traffic, and structural damage or repair. Revenue loss can hurt any kind of business. If your business needs to be temporarily shut down for pest control reasons, that’s time that could have been spent generating revenue.

A decrease in foot traffic and in-person customers is the natural result of a pest infestation. Whether customers notice the damage caused by the pests (which can include visual damage as well as unpleasant smells and sounds) or notice the pests themselves, they won’t want to spend time in your business, and that means they won’t be staying to make a purchase, and they’ll also make a mental note not to return.

As for property damage, this can be caused by rodents, termites, and even certain types of ants. For obvious reasons, property damage can threaten the overall safety of a building, and repairing this damage can be costly, far more costly than pest control.

So is pest control worth it in the long run for the health of your business? Yes, it is. It’s worth it in the short term, too. Inspections can take these pest control savings to the next level by stopping problems before they even start. 

The Time-Saving Benefits Of Regular Pest Inspections

Commercial pest control services, especially inspections, aim to identify problem areas in or around a building and find ways of resolving these problems. For example, the revenue lost by pest control shutdowns can be reduced or eliminated by regular pest inspections. Pest professionals can identify potential problems, treat the area, and keep your business safe.

Pest control also saves time in terms of structural damage and other visible signs of a pest infestation. Stopping these problems early prevents their spread and gives you the peace of mind that lets you and your employees stay productive.
