Commercial Pest Prevention Contracts

Commercial pest prevention contracts are arrangements made by firms with pest control companies in order to carry out pest control services several times a year. It can sometimes be financially beneficial to firms to have one of these contracts; instead of calling out pest control businesses to do one-off tasks, they will come to the property monthly or bi-monthly in order to ensure that the property is completely free of pests.

Changes in legislation have boosted the need for pest prevention, control and management. Businesses are expected to keep their premises completely pest-free, or they may have to deal with legal consequences. 

Infestations of rodents and insects can lead to a business’s products being damaged, issues with electricity due to wires being chewed, diseases being spread from unwanted creatures, and obviously, the reputation of the business being tarnished.

What Services are included in a Commercial Pest Control Contract?

Commercial pest prevention contracts will cover a whole range of services that offer solutions to commercial property owners who have pests located within their property. Pests can range from insects, to rodents such as rats and mice and birds of all sizes.

Below are some of the services that a commercial pest prevention contract will cover:

  • Insect control: This includes wasps, hornets, ants, flies, and more
  • Rodent control: This includes all species of rats, mice, squirrels, and more 
  • Bird control: This includes pigeons, seagulls, sparrows, and more

You may wonder how having a pest control contract will actually affect your business. Is the cost actually worth it? Below is a list of some of the benefits which a commercial pest prevention contract will bring you:

Benefits Of A Pest Control Contract

Your property will have regular pest control check-ups and maintenance to ensure that any problems are dealt with as swiftly as possible

No longer need to worry about the public’s concerns about your business’s pest control practices.

If your property or business deals with food production, then pest control can assist in the maintenance of food hygiene standards.

Through the use of greener and more sustainable pest control methods, you will be decreasing the exposure to harmful and dangerous pesticides to workers and customers within the property.

Features Of Pest Control Contracts

Routine Inspections

With most commercial pest prevention contracts, you will be getting visits from your chosen pest control business between 8 to 12 times a year, so around every 4 to 7 weeks.

This amount of visits is recommended as it covers the average amount of time it takes for a rodent to breed. So using this method, the possibility of an infestation occurring between visits is very unlikely.

Of course, if your property demands it, the frequency of visits can be increased to whatever amount seems acceptable; this can be negotiated within the contract.

Specific Pest Control

The majority of commercial pest prevention contracts will include the servicing and maintenance of rat and mice infestations.

They will often cover insect maintenance, too, in order to ensure that even minor pest issues are dealt with.

Sometimes the smallest pests can cause the most problems. If you are worried about a specific pest such as hornets, ants or beetles, then this can be worked into your contract.

Emergency Call Outs

Don’t panic if you discover a pest issue and your next scheduled pest control visit is several weeks away. Commercial pest prevention contracts include free call-outs, with the pest team getting to your premises usually within 24 hours.

All you need to do is contact the pest control office at any time, day or night, and they will let you know when a technician is on the way to solve your pest problem. 

Free Follow-Up Visits

If during a call-out or inspection, a pest control technician locates an issue on your property, then you will receive free follow-up inspections following the problem.

This is done to ensure that the infestation is properly dealt with and completely cleared. These free visits will often only be applicable to pests that are included within the commercial pest prevention contract.

Certified Pest Control

Certified pest control businesses have their technicians trained to the highest possible standards, as well as being CRB checked. If you are in the unfortunate situation of having to deal with a pest emergency, then you should know that pest control experts are only a phone call away. 

Below are some of the things you can always expect from a certified pest control business:

Fully Qualified Team

A fully qualified team of pest control technicians can be expected to provide a first-rate and professional service always, whether you call day or night. You should also expect expert equipment that can deal with your pest emergency in an efficient, timely and humane manner.

Management Team

By signing up for a commercial pest prevention contract, you will always be able to get in touch with a management team who can help you out in an emergency. They will be able to let you know when your next scheduled inspection is taking place, tell you when your technician is on the way to help with your emergency, and talk through the details of your pest prevention contract.

Courtesy Calls

Your pest control team should visit your property regularly in order to ensure that there are no ongoing pest issues and any recent pest developments have been successfully eradicated. These visits are also to make sure you are happy with the technician’s work and methods, as well as to discuss any future visits.
