Summer has arrived! While we welcome the warmer temps and extra sunshine, one thing we don’t love about the season is pests. Whether you have an influx of ants, wasps, hornets or other winged critters invading your facility, we have the right products to eliminate pests. Stock up today and follow these tips to manage pests at your facility this summer.
Eliminate Entry Points
Ants, hornets, wasps and other pests can come into your facility from any unsealed entry point. Take a careful look at your windows and door frames for cracks and check screens for tears. Unsealed vents are another common entry point. If you already notice pests in your facility, observe their movement in the early morning. You may be able to see their entry and exit points, which you can then seal off to stop re-entry.
Eliminate Food Sources
Common pests like wasps and ants love to feast on food discarded in garbage cans. They will even return to areas that once held food scraps even after they are removed in hopes of finding more. Make sure all of your waste is properly disposed of in containers with tight lids.
