Having regular pest control services is important when running a commercial property. For restaurants and other food outlets this is almost mandatory.
If you are serving food to the public, you must have measures in place to prevent food from becoming contaminated.
Rats, mice, flies, and cockroaches will typically be lurking in the shadows. They wait until there is some unattended food and swoop in or scurry to it for a feed.
If it occurs in a dining room or front counter area, the damage to a business’s reputation can be catastrophic.
Wollongong locals in-the-know use Jim’s Pest Control to ensure this does not happen.
Jim’s are the commercial pest control experts
Jim’s has been providing pest control services since 2011. Since that time, we have set up pest registers for tens of thousands of commercial sites.
We are extremely confident in the services we provide, which is why we rarely put customers onto a locked-in contract. This allows our clients to, if they are unhappy with our service, simply ring up and cancel the next service.
Clients love the fact that they are not forced to use us if the service does not meet expectations.
Cockroaches are a major pest to commercial sites
When you think of commercial pest control, typically you mind will think of food outlets. Food outlets have a responsibility to ensure they do not have pests running around their kitchen.
Cockroaches and ants are the major pest that will invade these outlets. They are seeking out any dropped or discarded food. Therefore, it is extremely important to make sure you are practicing good hygiene standards.
Unfortunately, just because you have outstanding hygiene levels does not make you immune to pests. Cockroaches love to hide behind fridges and only emerge at night. Often clients will not even know they have them until they start to spot them during the day.
A quick test to see if you have them or not is to go back to your premises a couple of hours after you have closed. Walk in with a torch and quickly survey the area. When you do this, you will no doubt find out how many cockroaches you have.
We are the local experts that can get cockroaches under control quickly. In addition, providing the necessary paperwork for councils and health departments gives our clients a distinct advantage.
Protecting workers from redback spiders
With our ever-changing environmental conditions, it has meant an explosion in spider numbers. More ponds and water catchment areas are being created as we all become more environmentally conscious.
Warehouses are now seeing a significant rise in red back spider numbers. To keep workers safe, more and more businesses are now getting their warehouses sprayed to keep them under control. There are weekly cases in Australia where a worker has been bitten by one of these spiders.
It often happens as they are picking up a box or item up of the floor. The results can potentially see the employee off work for a week or so while they recover.
For this reason, more businesses in Wollongong are now choosing to have their warehouses sprayed. While it will not eliminate the threat completely, it will make it a lot less likely for a spider bite to occur.
