As shopping centre doors constantly open and close and outlets leave their doors open to entice customers into their space it is understandable that retail outlets can quickly become vulnerable to pests. Pests around retail spaces can have many consequences for brand reputation, customer sales and physical damage done to store fronts and stock. From rodents to cockroaches, ants to moths, don’t let pests plague your business, let Blackwater Pest Management take care of your retail pest control problems today.
At Blackwater Pest Management, we want you to be empowered to do everything you can to protect yourself against pests. Check out some of our DIY tips below on how to minimise the risk of pest problems in your retail space:
Inspect for breached or open entrance points such as holes in fly screens, or small holes in the wall etc.
Inspect for invitations that entice pests including standing water, rubbish and discarded equipment
Clean regularly including properly discarding of employees’ food items and cleaning spillages thoroughly
Educate and train your staff to understand pest prevention techniques
Have a centralised, designated distribution point that can contain infestations of cockroaches that may arrive in your store in an shipping order just delivered
Avoid clutter that may invite pests to settle in and find a hiding place
