As a business owner there are many things to consider, including: your employees, your property, your services, your products and so much more! One area many business owners tend overlook is pest management. As with any potential pest problem, prevention is best! Here are a few tips to help keep your Tampa business pest free throughout the entire year:
Prohibit entrance of pests by following a consistent building maintenance plan.
Seal ALL cracks and holes on the outside of the building, including the areas around:
Electrical and utility service entrances
Ventilation and heating system entrances and exits
Windows and doors
Check and maintain all water drainage systems. Be sure to direct water away from the building and property.
Remove and prevent stagnant water that may have collected near the building as this is ideal breeding grounds for mosquitoes and can lead to problems with termites.
Keep gutters and drainage systems clean from debris so that water flows rather than sits still.
Dispose of trash quickly and keep garbage bags sealed in air-tight trash receptacles.
Keep all common and high traffic areas clean by implementing a daily cleaning routine.
Any eating area must be kept clean of crumbs and trash, as well as sanitized to prevent the spread of any harmful bacteria or pathogens that pests like roaches, flies and rodents can carry.
Have all employees keep food stored, sealed and disposed of properly.
