Pest Control for Retail
In the retail sector, the impression of your business determines how you maintain your old clients and attract new ones. Your reputation and customer satisfaction are vital at all times.
Hence, it's important that your business remains pest-free and safe from potential risks. However, because of the nature of the business (open to the public and receiving new deliveries from various suppliers), retail businesses are always vulnerable to pest attacks.
Pest control for retail in Singapore requires a robust pest management plan and a high level of expertise to treat infestations. The pest control company also needs to implement effective measures to protect the business from re-occurrences.
Our experts will do a comprehensive site survey and customize a pest management plan to deliver effective results. To maintain the zero-tolerance standards of your business, we provide real-time data tracking and ensure round-the-clock monitoring.
Pests in Retail
Retail businesses are highly vulnerable to many types of crawling insects, rodents, flies, and even birds. The best solution to retail pests is proactive measures to keep the invaders away from your premises. To allow the smooth running of your business with little to no interruptions, our experts will use odourless treatments that do not stain or leaves marks on your surfaces.
Rodents in Retail
Rats and mice are a big issue in retail businesses. They are especially attracted to the ready availability of food, warmth, and ideal nesting areas. They destroy property by chewing on structures like cardboard, wooden, and fabric materials. Additionally, they pose health risks by contaminating surfaces with their droppings and urine.
Controlling Rodents in Retail
There are varying rodent species, each requiring a unique treatment method to get rid of effectively. Upon a detailed inspection of your premises, the pest exterminator will determine the type of rodent causing problems and the level of infestation. They will then recommend a safe treatment method that will get rid of the pest and prevent re-occurrences.
Rodent Traps: Rodent traps have a stealthy design, making it easy to strategically place them in activity areas and rodent pathways. They have a visible monitor that indicates once a rodent has been trapped. The trap is safely disposed of thereafter.
Bait Stations: Bait stations are tamper resistance and highly attractive to rodents. They are designed with openings that only rats/mice can fit in while protecting non-target animals. The expert will strategically locate them in pest activity areas.
Ants in Retail
Ants are always in search of food and a safe place to nest. Hordes of ants are attracted to even the most insignificant food particles like small spillages and food crumbs.
When these industrious insects infest, they pose serious threats to the integrity of your structures. They make their nests by digging holes on wooden structures, causing them to warp. Ants also pose health risks by transferring pathogenic microorganisms to food and water.
Controlling Ants In Retail
Ants exist in numerous species, with each species requiring a unique treatment method. Our pest exterminators will do a thorough inspection to find out the exact species of ant threatening your retail business. From the findings, they will customize an effective treatment solution focused on controlling and protecting your premises from chances of future re-infestations.
Gel Baiting: we strategically apply eco-friendly and highly effective gel baits in areas where ants frequent. The baits work to lure the ants and kill them upon consumption. However, they don't die instantly and will live long enough to crawl back to their nests and potentially infect and kill the rest of the colony.
Non-toxic treatment: using the most effective pesticide treatment, we spray targeted areas to kill ants and provide long-term residue protection.
Flying insects in Retail
Moths tend to prefer clothing or fabric retail businesses. A moth invasion will cause expensive damages and financial losses by chewing wool, cotton, and linen fibres.
Controlling Flying Insects In Retail
Moths can be such a headache when they infest your retail business. They require a robust treatment solution to completely exterminate and destroy their nests while sealing all possible entry points.
Granule treatments: this method involves placing carbon bait boxes strategically in areas where the flies frequent, like near cabinets. The insects die upon bait consumption.
Flying insect control traps: we strategically position the latest and highly reliable units such as light traps in specific areas to attract and trap the flies for complete extermination.
Residual Spraying: an effective, non-toxic pesticide solution is sprayed directly on the flies resting areas to eliminate and prevent re-infestations.
Cockroaches in Retail
Cockroaches are always in search of food, water and a safe place to nest. Restaurants and supermarkets tend to have an overabundance of the three. Cockroaches are not fussy eaters; they feed on garbage and processed foods and beverages as well. This way, they potentially contaminate food with bacterias, exposing your customers to diseases like salmonella, food poisoning and diarrhoea.
Controlling Cockroaches In Retail
Over the years, cockroaches have developed a unique ability to squeeze even through the smallest openings like crevices in walls, dryer vents and cracks on floors into your premises. They can also be brought into the facility with supplies and deliveries.
Numerous cockroach species can infest retail businesses in Singapore. In addition, these filthy pests are able to survive in the hardest to reach places, requiring an expert to inspect rigorously to spot their hiding spots and customize an effective treatment plan for your premises.
Gel baiting: The expert will apply small bait dots in cracks and places where the roaches frequent. Once the pests get in contact with the bait, they carry it back to their source, thereby infecting and killing the entire colony.
Non-toxic Residual Spraying: Using an environmentally safe and highly effective solution, we spray targeted areas to control the cockroaches. The treatment also acts as a chemical barrier from future pest problems.
Occasional Invaders in Retail
Sometimes, when the environment becomes harsh outside, some harmless pests like lizards may seek refuge in your business. Often, they will leave on their own after some time. However, their mere presence can be disturbing and can even scare customers away.
Controlling Occasional Invaders in Retail
The best solution to occasional invaders is employing proactive measures to keep them out—you'll need to seal all cracks, crevices, and tiny gaps that may provide entry. Methodologies and techniques used to control these mostly harmless pests are environment-dependent and can be determined via phone or onsite consultation.
