Whether you own a home, a business, or both, the last thing you want is to share your space with rodents. They carry disease, destroy property, and multiply quickly. Taking care of a rodent problem as soon as you see signs of an infestation is necessary to keep your property rodent free. However, there are some fundamental differences in rodent control methods when it comes to residential and commercial properties. Read on to learn more about these variations.
Commercial Property Owners Don’t Have to Shut Their Doors
Closing down your business even just temporarily could cost you a lot of money. At Buzz Tech, we understand this. That’s why we respond quickly to any commercial rodent infestation. While it may be easy for a family to stay with friends or get a hotel room while the rodent problem is tackled, the same is not true for commercial businesses. It’s possible for some companies to have employees work remotely while we take care of a rodent problem, but this isn’t always the case. When you call in Buzz Tech, we intervene quickly with minimal disruption to your work day. All in all, it costs a business more to shut down due to a rodent infestation than it costs to get rid of the rodents or prevent an infestation in the first place.
Residential Rodent Control Has Fewer Variables
Generally speaking, most homes in Phoenix are the same. We have slump block homes built decades ago and newer homes, but they are all quite similar. This means that when Buzz Tech walks into a home, they can typically expect the rodent issue to be similar to others in residential areas and use the same techniques to rid the property of the infestation. Homes are typically smaller than commercial properties, making it much easier for the infestation to be contained and removed. Also, homes tend to get more infestations that involve bed bugs, ants, termites, and other pests, while commercial properties are more likely to experience a cockroach or rodent infestation, mainly due to the building’s environment, whether that be food service or simply being in proximity to an abandoned building where pest infestations thrive, especially rodents.
To rid the homeowner’s property of rodents, we use humane trapping that in no way poses any danger to you, your family, or your pets. We will also seal and caulk all areas where the rodents can gain access to your property, like windows, doors, and other openings.
Commercial Rodent Control Has Many Variables
Unlike residential properties, commercial properties vary greatly. They encompass food service, healthcare, retail, office buildings, hotels, and many more sectors, each needing a custom treatment plan to account for their particular industry and business size. The plan should include the short-term goal of getting rid of the rodents, as well as a long term goal that keeps them away. Buzz Tech has extensive experience servicing commercial buildings in Phoenix. We know when a business is more susceptible to a rodent infestation due to its location or industry and can provide the right measures to stop and prevent rodent infestations.
No two commercial properties are the same, and each rodent infestation is different. We may use an abundance of humane traps to get the infestation under control. However, depending on the size of the infestation, trapping may not be enough. We will also use rodent exclusion to keep your commercial property free of rats, including installing barriers to prevent rodents, such as rats and mice, from gaining access to your business.
Prevention is the Best Measure
Don’t wait until you see a rat or its droppings to take Phoenix rodent infestations seriously. If you see one rat, chances are there are many more you can’t see. At Buzz Tech, we work with both residential and commercial clients to prevent rodent infestations from occurring in the first place. We will come out to your property and do a thorough inspection of both the inside and the outside of your property. Since we have extensive experience in pest control, we will easily be able to see what could attract rodents to your property (water, food, plants and bushes to hide among) and how they can get inside. From here, we create a preventative plan with you to make modifications to your property that will prevent a rodent infestation.
