Many pest service providers only service the interior and immediate exterior of their commercial properties.
To have a truly integrated pest program, a service should focus on identifying conditions, avenues and sources of pest activity. Many times these sources can often be found away from the structure along property lines, plant bed areas, parking lot islands, trash collection areas and other property features. Inspecting these areas and putting into place corrective and preventive actions is critical to keep pests from getting in and coming back.
When selecting a pest service provider, be certain to look for one who takes these steps to assure the program is truly preventing pests and not reacting to them after they enter the structure.
