No matter what type of business you own or run, pests can cause problems. What type of problems? Well, there are a lot of businesses in Chattanooga, and it would take quite a while to go through all of them. But, fortunately, there are only a handful of real troublemakers when it comes to pests that plague businesses. Let’s take a look at them.
No business benefits from having wood-destroying pests. When termites eat away at structural supports, it can cause damage that can warp an entire structure and lead to expensive repairs that Chattanooga businesses can do without.
While carpenter ants won’t EAT the wood of your business, they do chew galleries through wood and cause floors to dip and walls to bulge. They are also known to crawl around in trash cans and carry harmful bacteria into food storage areas.
Mice and rats are never good to have around. These creatures, with their ever-growing incisors, must continually gnaw to keep those teeth filed down. This can lead to damaged wood and sheetrock. But where rodents cause the most trouble is when they get into areas where food is prepared for customers. Nothing will cause a failed government inspection faster than rodent droppings.
Cockroaches are known to transmit over 33 different strains of bacteria to human beings. In a business they can contaminate food and food prep surfaces, cause an increase in employee sick days, and drive customers to never return. They have even been linked to store closures as well.
These pests need no introduction. If you own or run any hospitality business, you are aware of the damage these bugs can do. They also threaten apartment complexes, movies theaters, libraries, taxi cab companies, and other businesses where customers, guests, and residents sleep, sit, or lounge. But most interesting of all are the product recalls that have come about because of bed bugs getting into merchandise.
Carpenter bees have the potential to lead to worker compensation cases and customer lawsuits. When someone steps on a wooden stair and it breaks due to carpenter bee damage, it can lead to physical harm and the repercussions are never good.
