Commercial pest prevention tips

Keep it clean – Common pests such as rodents, cockroaches and ants are experts at seeking out leftover food scraps and spills. If you work in the restaurant business (or any business for that matter), keeping food surfaces and worktops clean will reduce the chances of an unwelcome visit from Perth’s common commercial pests. You should also store leftover food in tightly-sealed containers to prevent unwanted infestations – this goes for offices as well as restaurants!

Regularly remove rubbish – Bins are a popular hotspot for Perth’s commercial pests. Common suspects such as flies, rats and cockroaches love to eat rotting rubbish, so changing bins regularly and removing leftover cardboard will reduce the risk of insect infestation in your business.

Tidy up outside – Unfortunately ‘out of sight, out of mind’ doesn’t quite work when it comes to commercial pest control. It’s easy to overlook things outside that could be attracting unwelcome bugs inside your business. Keeping outdoor bins at a distance and cleaning any foliage from outside your restaurant or office will prevent pests setting up home nearby.

Seal potential entry points – Insects and rodents can sneak into commercial properties from holes located on the exterior of your business’ buildings. Sealing any cracks and holes in your commercial property will help prevent Perth’s pests from making an unwelcome entry. Similarly, installing fly screens over windows will stop unwanted critters crawling in.

Regular commercial pest control – The best way to protect your business from pests is to organise regular inspections with commercial pest control experts.

We had a Termite Inspection & Cockroach Treatment on Monday and I just wanted to email you and let you know that your operator was great. It's not often that you get great customer service these days, so I thought I'd email you and let you know that he did a great job and went out of his way to be helpful and informative. Thank you.
