Effective Business Property Prevention Tips
As a business owner you already have enough on your plate. Between payroll, hiring, inventory and a slew of other day to day tasks, the last thing you want to find on your property are the indications of a termite infestation. While you should always call a professional pest control company first, there are some preventative measures you can take. Keep your commercial premises safe from these nasty pests by following Richmond Pest Control’s effective termite prevention tips for business owners.
7 Termite Prevention Tips for Businesses
Termite Treated Wood: Invest in wood that has been chemically treated for termite prevention. Termite resistant wood will give you extra protection against these invasive pests.
Control Moisture: The #1 reason a business owner finds themselves dealing with a termite infestation is because of moisture buildup. Termites are insatiable for moisture and seek it out at all costs. Regularly look for and immediately clean standing water inside and outside your commercial property.
Clean & Remove Debris: Keep the exterior of your commercial property free of fallen branches, overgrown grass and dense vegetation. This will keep your business looking pristine, but also prevent termites from nesting in the overgrowth.
Fix Exterior Damage: Not only should you repair damages to siding, gutters and roofing to keep the structure of your building sound, but this will also prevent moisture buildup – the biggest attraction for termites.
Check & Repair Seals: Termites can enter your commercial property easily through tiny openings in your seals. Regularly inspect the seals around all doors and windows and immediately caulk any gaps you find.
Regular Termite Inspections: While a residential termite prevention inspection is necessary just once per year, business owners should strongly consider scheduling this service twice per year. Termite inspections are the best way to identify and stop infestations before they happen.
Call Professional Pest Control: Hiring a professional extermination and pest control company is the only way to treat & prevent termites in your place of work. DIY methods are simply not enough to control or eliminate a terminate infestation at your business.
