How Flying Insects Can Impact Your Business

Pest Free Zone

No matter what business you are in, clients expect you to maintain a clean workplace. What clean means differs according to your business type; customer expectations for a commercial kitchen and restaurant space are different than they are in industrial or mechanical spaces. However, customers expect any premises to be free from pests. Being 100% pest-free might be an unrealistic expectation, depending on the type of business that you run, but that does not change the fact that visible pests can ruin your reputation.

That is why flying insects are such a danger to your business. Flying insects get attention because, unlike other types of pests, they routinely hover around clients or workers. They are annoying, they put food at risk, they can spread disease, some of them bite and string, and they give an overall impression of slovenliness, even if your business is extremely clean. What makes it worse is that flying insects can be very difficult to control. After all, they fly. Anytime you have a business with doors that open to the outside, which you absolutely need if you want to have customers, you have a risk of flying insects.

Creating a No-Fly Zone

Fortunately, there are steps you can take to minimise the risk of flying insects in your business. The first step is prevention. It is a good idea to regularly walk around the outside of your business and any adjacent properties and look for risk factors for flying insects. This can include nests for wasps, bees, and other stinging insects, standing water that may attract other pests, and the garbage disposal system at the business-site. Making sure that your business is not inviting is the first step to keeping flying insects from impacting your business.

The next step is to take eradication seriously as soon as you notice flying insects are a problem. Flies may only live for about a week, but a female fly can lay 1,000 eggs in that time frame. What starts out as a couple of pests can turn into a major infestation, seemingly overnight. Getting extermination services quickly can help you avoid that type of problem, saving you money, not only in overall extermination costs, but also by saving profits you would have lost through customers going elsewhere.
