Why Professional Pest Control Is A Must For New Castle Businesses

December 23, 2020


A great number of critters behave in such a way that only preventive methods will stop their impending wreckage. This is the case especially for bugs and animals that multiply at a fast pace. If there are no professional interventions, customers and employees could be harmed or become sick. Materials could be damaged. The reputation of your business could be in shambles. Find out how you can avoid these outcomes with help from Moyer Pest Control.

What Are The Risks Of Pests & Infestations?

Pests should never be underestimated. Most are dangerous in some way. For instance, wood-destroying bugs can literally take down an establishment. Termites, powder post beetles, carpenter ants, and others shred away at foundations and structures. This can lead to a  business being deemed uninhabitable, and having to shut down. Termites by themselves rack up $5 billion in costs each year in the United States. Don’t expect an insurance company to bail you out, because the average one won’t cover these expenditures.
Critters such as moths, carpet beetles, silverfish, and crickets can be a nightmare for entities that deal in furniture and fashion. These kinds of creepy crawlers devour and ruin fabrics. Furthermore, several moth species spoil food and pantry items.
If that wasn’t bad enough, a multitude of pests can spread or transmit disease. Cockroaches, ants, rodents, and more carry illness-causing bacteria and/or parasites. These can be in their skin, fur, and/or waste. Their total germ count increases as they go through trash and other filthy settings. They are capable of contaminating both surfaces and food. In addition, rodents chew on cords and walls, which can end in an electrical failure or fire. For a company in dining, hospitality, food processing, and/or factory distribution, this would be a major issue. Not to mention those in healthcare or residential living. Sanitary conditions would be nonexistent.
Customers and employees who are subject to pest infestation might experience the following:

  • Pathogens
  • Viruses
  • Allergic responses
  • Asthmatic reactions
  • Respiratory complications
  • Gastrointestinal infections
  • Rabies
  • Birth defects
  • Insomnia

What’s the Problem With “Do It Yourself” Methods?

People tend to assume that independent pest control methods are just as effective as professional solutions but less expensive. This is a common misconception. Retail products like traps, baits, and insecticides are actually fairly pricey. You’ll be making repeat purchases too because they generally have low effectiveness. Other flaws and things to consider are:

  • Most are for temporary use only and have momentary effects.
  • Shelf items won’t resolve entry points or infestation centers.
  • Each species responds to treatments differently.
  • Some products are too weak, while others are highly toxic.
  • Instruction labels are often hard to understand, which could lead to misapplication.
