Mice and cockroaches are the most common pests found in offices according to the National Pest Management Association. Regardless of what kind of pest dwells in an office, all types bring about damages to the various equipment and pose health risks to the employees too, which can greatly affect the business’ operations.
Nevertheless, there are simple steps on how to prevent pests from nesting in your working area. Start with determining specific spots like the office pantry, waste bins, and the restroom. Similar to home maintenance, the office should be regularly cleaned as well by dusting, proper storage of food, taking out waste daily, and sanitizing. Using insecticides may also be included, yet it is important to consider its possible health hazards to the employees, and natural alternatives are preferable.
