Uncertainty over the pandemic has forced many companies to change the way they conduct business. If you own and operate a retail establishment, restaurant, hotel, health care facility, or any other business, your first priority is to keep your employees and customers safe utilizing the recommended CDC guidelines.

In this article, we want to remind you that even though, as a global community, people are dealing with the ramifications of the coronavirus, the virus is not stopping unwanted pests and rodents from surfacing empty buildings. Given the circumstances, New Jersey has done an outstanding job with containing the spread of COVID-19 over the past few weeks, as businesses begin to open their doors to the public, commercial pest control is more important than ever to keep your business safe.

With many of us having been locked down in New Jersey because of the coronavirus pandemic, many facilities have fallen prone to pest’s infestation. The level of severity is based upon your business, pest history, and seasonal climate of your commercial building. There are things that you can take control of to stop pests from entering into any commercial space. To prevent rodents and insects from continuing to enter your facility, you must seal all openings into your commercial facility. This includes windows, piping systems, doors, and other points of entry, and by accomplishing this, you will make it very difficult for pests to enter.

Another thing you can do to protect your location is to remove all sources of food and water. This most likely the reason pests entered into your facility in the first place. The best way to accomplish this is by routine cleaning, but with COVID-19 preventing people from going in, more in-depth preventative measures are required. As a precaution, we recommend storing all food in sealed glass or plastic containers.

Of course, even with these preventative measures, your best course of action is to hire a professional commercial pest control company to make sure your business is safe to open.
