Commercial Pest Control Services
Pest Management Services for Your Business
By Industry : No matter what kind of business you’re in, we have a solution for you. Find out what you can expect from our APPM Commercial Pest Control.
AIM: Assess. Implement. Monitor.
Effective pest management is a process, not a one-time event. Through our Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach, we identify the best program for your needs based on scientific research and custom solutions. Our methods combine a collaborative and ongoing cycle of three critical activities, so you can rest assured that your business is getting maximum protection with minimum exposure.
First we inspect, identify, and evaluate all the underlying reasons pests infest your facility.
- Comprehensive inspections: We detect sanitation issues or structural conditions conducive to pests.
- Identification of pest activity: We examine and report evidence of pest infestation.
- Risk evaluation: We consider your facility type, geography and conditions conducive to pest activity.
Cookie-cutter pest management solutions are ineffective. Our Commercial Pest Specialist continually works with you to develop a customized solution.
- Focus on prevention: When we can, we start with exclusion, sanitation and other non-chemical options.
- Environmentally responsible: If a product is needed, our Commercial Pest Specialist selects the most effective treatment with the least impact on the environment.
- Sanitation consultation: Our Commercial Pest Specialist will consult with you to make sure your cleaning, facility maintenance and exclusion efforts make a real impact on potential pest “hot spots.”
Year-round monitoring, documentation, and communication help to ensure the ongoing effectiveness of your service.
- Ongoing protection: During regular service inspections, our Commercial Pest Specialist monitors for signs of pest activity, looks for pest-conducive conditions, and ensures that your program is working.
- Documentation and communication: After each service, our Commercial Pest Specialist documents all services performed, pest activity and any other recommendations.
Is Your Business Giving Pests What They Want?
They May Be Small, But Their Cost Can Be Huge
Just one pest can have a financial impact on your business, but a larger infestation could cripple your operation’s reputation. And since a few pests can multiply quickly once inside, trying to prevent them from getting in is the key.
- Entry Points: Pests can enter your business in many ways, including through doors, windows, vents, plumbing, cracks or holes in walls and floors, or via supplier deliveries.
- Water Sources: Pests require water daily, which means water fountains, restrooms, faulty drains, condensation from air conditioning systems and other types of plumbing are attractive breeding grounds.
- Food Sources: Even minor sanitation mishaps provide adequate food for pests. Cockroaches will eat almost anything – from hair to glue used in cardboard boxes.
- Harborage Points: Rodents and cockroaches seek living spaces that are small and dark. Little cracks and crevices throughout your facility can provide breeding and living areas for pests.
- Customer/Employee Areas: Areas like break rooms are critical exposure points. Protecting your customers and staff from unsightly and unhealthy exposure to pests is essential to your business’ success – and to your bottom line.
