Impact Cockroaches Have On Tulsa Businesses
September 30, 2019
Many commercial properties offer many food sources, excess moisture, and plenty of hiding spaces. Without a commercial pest control plan covering your property, your business is susceptible to all the problems these insects cause.
Contrary to what many people believe, cockroaches don’t only infest filthy properties. They will invade any location that provides them with moisture, warmth, and food. Unfortunately, this makes Tulsa businesses an attractive target. Many commercial properties offer many food sources, excess moisture, and plenty of hiding spaces. Without a commercial pest control plan covering your property, your business is susceptible to all the problems these insects cause.
Problems Caused by Cockroaches
Cockroaches are not only disturbing but harmful as well. While they don't bite or sting, they are still a danger to your health. These dirty insects are responsible for spreading many different diseases, including salmonella, polio, and dysentery. Cockroaches also contaminate food products, and counter surfaces with the bacteria they’ve picked up while crawling through garbage or other unsanitary areas. Additionally, cockroach feces and their shed skins contain allergens which may cause asthma attacks in some individuals.
It only takes one customer spotting a cockroach in your Tulsa business to damage your reputation. Whether you own a restaurant, warehouse, or hotel, cockroach infestations are not something you want to leave up to chance. One or two cockroaches can turn into several dozen unless pest control services are implemented immediately. Preventative steps should always be taken before cockroaches have the chance to invade.
How To Keep Cockroaches Out of Your Business
Keeping cockroaches away from your Tulsa business is not always easy. However, there are a few measures that can be taken to ensure your property does not attract these insect pests. Some prevention methods include:
Sealing cracks around your foundation and exterior walls with a caulking gun including gaps made for pipes, wires, and other utilities
Reducing excess moisture on your commercial property by checking for leaking pipes, faulty drains, clogged gutter systems, and items that may collect rainwater
Keeping your trash cans sealed and stored away from your exterior walls
Removing clutter from your business, including papers, boxes, bags, and other things that may provide cockroaches with places to hide
