Pest Control in Office Buildings & Units


Office buildings and individual units are conducive to potential pest problems due to the high volumes of people interacting within them. The main pest problems faced in individual units or an office building are ants and cockroaches (particularly if there is an office pantry). In a working environment, this can be problematic for both productivity and staff turnover. Businesses have a duty of care towards their employees and so it is important that any pest issues are managed effectively. Key areas to protect include basements and car parks, storage rooms and bin chutes and rubbish and recycling centres, as these are the areas with the greatest risk of pest infestation.

If there is greenery or sky gardens within the office environment, then the potential for mosquitoes is great. Mosquitoes can spread very serious illnesses and so managing this threat is vital to protect both the business and its’ employees. Failure to do so, could lead to serious reputational damage for the business and its owners, especially if the infestation were to become severe enough to be newsworthy.

In general, the problems within office buildings and individual units should be minimal. This is mainly due to the fact that there are often very few food and beverage outlets. As long as good housekeeping and processes are applied, then managing a potential pest problem should be straightforward. This is why an office or individual unit should consider using Killem to identify potential issues and put procedures in place. We will implement an Integrated Pest Management solution, which will not only put in place preventative measures but also ensure best practice and clear guidelines on good housekeeping to minimise issues.
