Pests are a common problem faced by many businesses in the UK. Whether it’s rodents, insects, or other unwanted creatures, pests can cause damage to property and pose health risks to humans and pets. To combat this issue, preventative pest control measures have become increasingly popular in recent years.

Preventative pest control involves implementing measures that discourage pests from entering a property in the first place. This can include regular inspections, proper waste management, and sealing entry points such as cracks and gaps in walls, floors, and doors. By taking these steps, businesses can significantly reduce the risk of pest infestations and avoid the need for expensive treatments and repairs.

One of the most effective preventative measures for pest control is to sign a preventative contract with Nanogreen Sustainable Facilities Management. A preventative contract provides regular inspections and treatments to ensure that pests are kept at bay. These contracts can also include emergency callouts and additional treatments if required.

When choosing a pest control company for a preventative contract, it’s important to consider their experience, reputation, and qualifications. Look for a company that is a member of a professional body such as the British Pest Control Association (BPCA) or the National Pest Technicians Association (NPTA). These organisations ensure that their members adhere to strict standards and regulations.

The Significance of Preventative Pest Control

In addition to signing a preventative contract, there are several other steps that businesses can take to prevent pest infestations. These include:

  1. Proper waste management: Pests are attracted to food and waste, so it’s important to dispose of rubbish and food scraps properly. Keep bins sealed and ensure that waste is removed regularly.
  2. Seal entry points: Pests can enter buildings through even the tiniest of gaps. Seal any cracks or gaps in walls, floors, and doors to prevent pests from getting in.
  3. Keep the property clean: Regular cleaning can help to prevent pests from taking up residence. Keep surfaces and floors clean and free of crumbs and debris. Ask us how we can help with this.
  4. Store food properly: Pests are attracted to food, so it’s important to store food in sealed containers to prevent access.
  5. Maintain outdoor areas: Pests can breed in outdoor areas such as gardens and yards. Keep these areas well-maintained and clear of debris to discourage pests from settling in.

Preventative pest control measures can help to keep businesses free from pests and avoid the need for costly treatments and repairs. By taking a proactive approach, property owners can enjoy peace of mind and avoid the stress and inconvenience of dealing with pest infestations.
