What Is Pest Exclusion? How To Protect Your Business

Finding pests inside your restaurant or storefront can bring your business to a grinding halt, and that is one issue that must be avoided at all costs. While traditional pest control tactics can be highly effective, you might want to consider contacting Colorado Pest Pros to discuss pest exclusion services as well. That type of pest control prevents infestations before they occur, and it is a great way to reduce your risk of finding rats, mice, and other unwanted animals inside your place of business.

Why Pest Exclusion?

There are many different reasons why pest exclusion practices have become so popular in recent years. In addition to being highly effective, those tactics are also considered to be very humane. The pests are going to be denied entrance into your business, and that means they won’t have to be exterminated or relocated. It is important to note that pest exclusion can be very cost-effective as well. With a few simple preventative steps, you can greatly reduce your risk of an infestation that damages your company’s reputation and drives away customers.

The Basics of Pest Exclusion

Pest exclusion plans are typically targeted at rodents, but they can be effective with insects as well. The general concept of pest exclusion is to deny pests access to your building. That can be accomplished with a wide variety of tactics, and every single exclusionary plan must be personalized. When you first meet with our pest control expert, they are going to go over every inch of your business to determine where rodents and insects might be gaining access. Once the assessment stage has been completed, they can then use a few different methods for denying the unwanted pests entry.

One of the most effective ways to keep rodents and other pests out of your business is to seal up openings. Mice and rats can fit through incredibly small openings, and that is one of the reasons why the assessment stage is so important. Your business could potentially have dozens of openings where rodents could make their way into the building. Screens and caulk are two great options for most openings, and they are fairly easy to put in place. It is also vital that you don’t give those pests access to food and water. Our technicians might suggest that you move your trash bins or alter the bins so that rodents can’t get inside of them.
