With fewer products on the shelves and minimal staff present to manage these facilities, we expect to see an increase in pest activity as we move into 2022.
Much of the commercial world has changed as we continue to recover from COVID-19. Supply and labor shortages continue to impact many restaurants, grocery stores, distribution centers, and other commercial facilities. Unfortunately, one thing that’s not in short supply – pests.
With fewer products on the shelves and minimal staff present to manage these facilities, we expect to see an increase in pest activity as we move into 2022. However, at Titan Pest & Wildlife Solutions, our commercial pest control team will tailor a solution for you, no matter your type of facility or industry. Call us today to schedule an appointment.
What to Expect in 2022
We anticipate seeing an increase in rodent activity. Mice and rats are adaptive creatures who like to hide from humans and look for dark, quiet spaces to build their nests. They are likely to take advantage of unoccupied spaces and empty facilities and wreak havoc in the process.
Another pest that’s anticipated to increase this year is birds. Like rodents, birds look for nesting areas with little to no traffic. Once the weather begins to get warm, commercial property owners and managers can expect to see an increase in bird activity.
A third pest that’s expected to cause significant problems is bed bugs. Bed bugs are resilient insects that have learned to adapt and survive for months without blood. However, bed bugs can also travel from place to place by hitchhiking on luggage, clothing, and other personal belongings. As travel increases, so will the population of bed bugs.
How to Protect Your Business from Pests
If you are a business owner or property manager, now is the time to act! Don’t wait for a pest issue to become a major problem before calling a professional pest control company. Also, don’t assume that pests aren’t a problem because your facility is temporarily closed or because traffic is reduced. Remember, pests will take advantage of this situation.
When pests infest your commercial building, it could put your business in jeopardy. So, getting the pests removed properly is essential for your business to thrive. While some business owners try taking the DIY route to save money, the efforts are often futile. Simply applying pesticides to combat the recurring problem is typically ineffective because it does not address the root cause. Our pest control approach utilizes sanitization, inspection, and monitoring before applying treatment. This method makes your business safer while minimizing any adverse effects on the environment.
