Safety Is Important

The first, and arguably the most important, reason to hire a professional pest exterminator for your commercial building is safety. When you use over-the-counter insecticides or rodenticides, you are distributing chemicals that you are likely not familiar with. These products can inadvertently harm employees or patrons of your commercial business. If you use these products outside or if your building is pet-friendly, you might also cause serious harm to someone’s pet or service animal.

The poisons aren’t the only dangerous part about pest control, either! Certain pests themselves pose a threat to humans and animals. Whether it is rodents, wasps, or a venomous spider, commercial pest extermination is best left to the professionals. We have a long history of working with these pests and understand how to work with them safely.

DIY Pest Control Is Time Consuming

Effective pest control takes time. That’s why it’s our full-time job! DIY methods of pest control are not only time-intensive, but you might be spending money on products that just won’t get the job done. Instead of spending your valuable time trying to treat your commercial building for pests, just call the professionals. We can take the time we need to perform a thorough inspection while you focus on your business.

Commercial Pest Exterminators Are Highly Trained

When you hire Earthwise as your professional pest exterminator in Sacramento, you can rest easy knowing that you are working with the best of the best. The expertise that commercial exterminators bring to the table is invaluable when you are trying to tackle a stubborn pest problem and keep your business pest-free.

A highly-trained commercial pest exterminator knows that pest control doesn’t have a one-size-fits-all solution. They will look at the problem in-depth to identify the species of pest you are dealing with, use their knowledge to understand why that pest is attracted to your property, and find a solution that will offer long-term pest exclusion, not just a short-term fix.

Pests Can Cost You A Lot Of Money

The number of over-the-counter pesticides you will need to treat an entire commercial property will run up a big bill. Not only will it cost a lot of money, but it might also prove to be ineffective. However, that’s not the only money you will lose by not hiring a commercial pest exterminator.

Whether your commercial property is an office space, a warehouse, a restaurant, a retail store, or something else entirely, having persistent pests can wreak havoc on your bank account. Pests in an office can make employees sick (or sick of seeing spiders crawl over their desk!) and cause them to miss work, making your company less productive. Rodents and moths are known for destroying inventory in warehouses. Rodents or cockroaches in your restaurant or retail store can leave customers running to Yelp to write a bad review. If your commercial property has tenants, they can withhold their rent until you fix the pest problem.

If a pest problem like termites or rodents gets out of hand, you can be left with steep cleaning and repair fees to get your building back in working order. Depending on your business, you might be left with fines for failing inspections. With all of the above in mind, you can see that hiring a professional pest control company for commercial buildings is a smart investment.

Your Business’ Reputation Is Riding On It

As we mentioned above, pests in a business can lead to customers leaving bad reviews. In the era of online reviews, you can’t afford negative ones that will bring down your overall rating. For this reason, consistency is key.

If you found this page by Googling “commercial pest exterminator near me,” then you are likely in one of two situations. Either you are looking for preventative services to ensure the word ‘rat’ or ‘cockroach’ never ends up in one of your reviews, or you currently have a pest infestation and you are desperate to get rid of it. If you are the former, then you can clearly see that pest control isn’t a one-and-done thing. If you are the latter, then you probably wish you had invested in pest maintenance earlier.

A commercial exterminator can provide quarterly pest maintenance to prevent pest problems before they even have a chance to occur. If you currently have a pest problem, then call us right away and we will take care of it as quickly as possible.

Pests Can Ruin Your Inventory or Equipment

Whether meal moths have invaded your food production warehouse, mice have chewed through your wiring, or rats have made nests in your storage room, pests can ruin the very objects that keep your business up and running.

Not only can these issues ruin the productivity of your business, but they can also lead to you losing important data or information, having to make expensive repairs, and possibly losing customers over not being able to fulfill their orders.

The best way to avoid this type of problem is to invest in preventative pest control services. If your commercial property is in the Greater Sacramento area, Earthwise Pest Management can provide those services to you!

Your Employees Want You To

You might remember from our fourth point that employees can become sick, or sick of seeing pests, and stay home from work. Employees want a safe, sanitary work environment. Whether the building is infested with ants, spiders, rodents, or a combination of pests, that is neither safe nor sanitary.

Large pest problems can cause actual illness, especially respiratory problems. This can lead to employees not being able to come into work or constantly feeling sick at work and leaving early.

It is also possible that employees are just fed up with pests in the facility. This can lead to a high turnover rate and workplace unhappiness. As a business owner, you need to ensure you are protecting your employees from pests. Hiring a professional commercial pest exterminator can help accomplish this!

DIY Pest Control Is Often Ineffective

Different pests require different treatments. Even pest infestations of the same species can require vastly different approaches. While some over-the-counter pesticides might claim they take care of all six- and eight-legged friends, the reality is that they are often ineffective.

Even if you do manage to find a product that works for your particular pest, it is unlikely that it will work in the grand scheme of things. Pest problems don’t just happen willy-nilly. The pests show up for a reason. Whether your building offers food, shelter, the perfect breeding ground, or some combination of those, there is a reason that the pests arrived in the first place. Pests search out conditions that are favorable for their survival and reproduction. Spraying some poison or setting a few traps won’t prevent the next wave of pests from coming.

At Earthwise, our commercial exterminators use a process of pest control called Integrated Pest Management, or IPM. IPM is a method of long-term pest protection that involves discovering the root cause of the infestation. Our exterminators will perform a thorough inspection of the property to find the reason why pests are attracted to it and how they are entering the premises. They will then devise a plan of action that rids the property of those attractive features and entry points to not only take care of the existing problem, but to also prevent future problems from occurring.  

You Will Receive A Customized Pest Control Plan

If pest control had a one-size-fits-all solution, pest management companies would go out of business. Our business survives when our pest control treatments work, so you can bet that our commercial pest exterminators will create a custom plan of action for your pest problem.

Based on your situation, we may suggest quarterly, biannual, or annual pest control treatments in addition to other options. Because we use IPM to manage pests, we will do more than just spray chemicals on your property — in fact, we try to limit our use of pesticides and rodenticides unless necessary. We will analyze your pest problem, your property, and other factors and create a custom plan to meet your needs.

Commercial Pest Exterminators Find Long-Term Solutions

We’ve touched on this point throughout this page. We’re not here to put a bandage over the wound. We’re here to solve the problem and prevent it from happening again. Depending on the scope and nature of your pest problem and commercial property, that solution might look different from one client to the next. However, with Earthwise, you can depend on us using our wealth of knowledge, experience, and determination to find the best solution for your situation.

What Your Commercial Pest Exterminator Will Do

Calling a commercial pest exterminator in Sacramento is the first step in keeping your building pest-free. When you get started, a highly-trained pest expert will perform a thorough inspection of the property. They will look both inside and outside of the building and primarily focus on finding breeding or nesting sites. We try to determine where and why the infestation began and look at how we can remove those favorable elements. We will ask questions and make sure we understand the full scope of the issue.

We will use clues to identify the species of pest or pests that are causing the problem. This can be done if we are able to make contact with the pest or by looking for droppings and other signs of a pest. By understanding the exact type of pest we are dealing with, as well as how mature the infestation is, we can better tackle the problem.

After we have all of the information we need, we will create a treatment plan and implement prevention techniques. Earthwise strives to limit our use of insecticides and rodenticides in order to protect the environment and our customers and employees. However, when pesticides are necessary, know that we are using them as a supplement to other measures of pest exclusion.

Finally, we will perform follow-up pest maintenance as needed. In order to give you the best possible pest control experience, we treat each follow-up visit uniquely. We go through the above steps to re-evaluate where the pest problem is and adjust our strategy as necessary.
