Every Business Needs A Pest Control Specialist

A cockroach, mouse, or rat infestation can be a horrible mess for any commercial business.  Restaurants and hotels can suffer terribly from these disgusting pests because these creatures love to hang out where food, water, and shelter sources are a plenty.

A pest infestation is bad for business in many ways.  Infestations will not only drive needed customers away, they are also known to shut businesses down completely as well.  Having an unwanted pest infestation at your restaurant can easily destroy your food supply.  Mice and rats carry dangerous diseases in their urine and feces.  They contaminate food preparation areas and chew into food supplies.  Cockroaches transmit bacteria and can bring disease into your environment.  No food source is off-limits to a cockroach.  They will eat anything, including another cockroach if need be.

The presence of mice, rats, or cockroaches can easily tarnish or destroy completely a company’s professional reputation.  Once patrons hear about a cockroach infestation at a restaurant or hotel, they are likely to head for the hills!  Customers often remain leery for a long time after the reported pest problem has been taken care of, in fear that it could return at any time.

Businesses would be wise to consider having a pest control specialist perform pest inspections and treatment at regular intervals to keep unwanted pests at bay.  Commercial pest control services are a small price to pay in comparison to a business losing its long standing good reputation.

Exterminators Should Always Be Licensed Part II Of II

Not only is Josimar Ferreira accused of operating a Massachusetts extermination company without being certified, but it has been reported that he has also allegedly maintained pest control companies in New Jersey and New York as well.  Both New Jersey and New York have cited Ferreira for operating an unlicensed pesticide business.  It makes you wonder how he is able to obtain toxic pesticides, without being properly licensed.  Clearly there was a breakdown…in three states!

Ants Starting to Invade NJ and NY Kitchens

For most people, spring in New York and New Jersey means ants in the kitchen. Beneficial in their natural outdoor environment, when ants invade homes, ants can become a serious problem for home and business owners. Ants live in huge colonies that can number in the millions. While most species dwell outdoors in underground nests, ants often enter homes while foraging for food and may build satellite nests indoors in places such as wall voids, under cabinets or in attic insulation. A long trail of ants leading into a trashcan or food left on a counter is a frequent indication of ant infestation.  

While most ants are classified as nuisance pests, carpenter ants damage buildings, pharaoh ants spread bacteria, and many species contaminate food supplies. By virtue of their tremendous numbers and persistent behavior, even nuisance ants can become an overwhelming problem. If ants invade your home or business, call a pest control professional. Home treatment and garden sprays will just cause ant colonies to split or relocate making extermination more difficult. Ant extermination requires expert identification and pest control treatment.
