How Often Should Commercial Pest Control Be Completed?

Wondering how often you need to have commercial pest control services in your workplace?

In this article, we’ll discuss the general recommendations for how often pest control inspections for commercial enterprises should be performed, what influences this and how we can help.

When Does Commercial Pest Control Need to Be Done?

While there is no hard and fast rule of how often pest control services should be completed, our recommendation is that they are done on a monthly, bimonthly or quarterly basis.

Factors That Influence How Often You Need Commercial Pest Control 

There are several factors that may influence how often you require commercial pest control services. In this section, we’ll go through them in more detail:

Level of Infestation/Reason for Service

One of the biggest factors we need to consider when recommending how often you need to have your premises inspected is the level of your infestation or reason for the service.

If, for instance, you have arranged pest control services as a way of maintaining your environment rather than addressing an infestation, you may find that they have to be done less frequently.

But if you’re dealing with a major infestation of rats or cockroaches, you may need our services more often. This is especially the case if the issue could not be rectified during our first visit, or you require follow-up treatments.

Type of Business

The type of business you run is also something that comes into play.

A remote business with little face to face contact may be able to get away with a bi-monthly service whereas one where clients and staff are constantly in and out may need a monthly appointment.

Health & Safety Regulations

Health and safety regulations must be adhered to when it comes to pest control. Businesses that have strict standards like those in hospitality may have a tighter turnaround schedule than retail or administration.

Cleaning Routine

Do you employ a cleaner to clean your office every couple of days or weekly? In that case, you may be able to stretch the time between pest control visits.

On the other hand, if your workplace is constantly ill-kept no matter how hard you try to maintain it, it’s likely you’ll see us more frequently.

Location & Environmental Conditions

Your location and environmental conditions is something else we have to think of. When you are in a rural area where pests are rife, you’ll probably need to schedule appointments more frequently.
