Preventative Pest Control: Reasons Why Commercial Spaces Need to Take Action Now

Whether you operate a bakery in San Juan, a government office in Ponce, or a local manufacturing space in Mayagüez, keeping pests out of your space is crucial to the success of your operations. Organizations that have to deal with pests face a wide range of negative consequences, including damaged relationships, lost productivity, and even extensive physical damage to a property. Like any other type of commercial problem, prevention is the best way to approach infestations.

Puerto Rico’s Unique Pest Control Problems

Due to Puerto Rico’s tropical climate and lush geography, bugs and small animals are everywhere. Businesses in the country face threats from mosquitoes, termites, birds, ants, and a wide range of other pests that are always at your doorstep. Because these pests are never more than a short distance from your property, you need to make sure your space is protected from infestation throughout the year. If pests show up in your shop or office while customers or clients are present, it’s already too late.

At Oliver Exterminating, we approach prevention through the principle of Integrated Pest Management. We know that the success of your business depends on a wide range of factors, and we account for all those factors when delivering our services. Your reputation in the community, the safety of your employees and customers, and the health of the local environment are all affected by our ability to deal with pests the right way.

Effective Prevention Techniques

Fumigation is an effective technique for pest mitigation because it eliminates a wide range of insect threats. If your business involves exporting or importing shipping containers, fumigation can prevent infestations locally and abroad. We use a broad range of fumigants to deal with the two most common pests that affect Puerto Rican businesses: the pine wood nematode and the Asian longhorned beetle. The pine wood nematode can cause the widespread death of pine trees, while the longhorned beetle is a threat to all of America’s hardwood trees.

Many clients associate pest control with chemicals, but some of the most effective ways to prevent pests involve equipment that requires no spraying or fumes. We help our commercial clients take advantage of:

  • Glue insect light traps
  • Rat and mouse traps
  • Advanced subterranean termite baiting systems
  • Electrocuting insect light traps

In Puerto Rico, we care a great deal about being friendly to the environment, so the equipment and services Oliver Extermination offers adhere to the strictest eco-friendly practices. Our pest control services are safe and effective for food processing plants, shopping centers, docks, universities, governmental agencies, and even airports.
