Why You Shouldn’t Use Poison on Your Commercial Pest Problem

Wildlife infestations are an unfortunate inconvenience for many commercial buildings. They can result in huge setbacks, repair costs, and even cause profit pitfalls that send businesses into the red. Because the likelihood of loss might tempt you to find the quickest pest control fix for your company, we’ve laid out the long-term implications of toxically treating your pest problem as well as the benefits of hiring commercial pest control professionals to resolve your disruptive and damaging infestation issues.

The Dangers of Toxic Commercial Pest Control Chemicals

  • Harmful to the Environment

Toxic pest control shortcuts can leave lasting scars on your company and your local environment. For example, if you spray a poisonous solution in troubled areas of your building, a smaller rodent, like a rat or mouse, could ingest it. If that critter manages to make it out of your building and is eaten by a predator species, like a hawk or owl, the poison could end up harming a wild animal that never even bothered your building.

Why You Shouldn’t Use Poison on Your Commercial Pest Problem
  • Attracts Other Pests

When you use poison to treat your pest problem, you’re left with the remains of dead rats, mice, or squirrels that can stir up an entirely different infestation  Pests like ants, maggots, and flies, feed or lay eggs on larger pests that have passed. Such pests are attracted to dead animal carcasses that are rotting within your walls, producing a foul stench that flows throughout the area. Once inside, these pests will multiply and spread an infestation that could be larger and more damaging than your initial wildlife problem.

  • Ignores the Real Problem

Even if the use of a toxic treatment manages to eliminate every nuisance wild animal causing a commotion inside your business, you won’t have treated the source of your issue. Neither will you prevent other animals from entering. To truly keep pests out, locate and seal each potential point of entry and uncover the food, water, or other substance attracting pests to your commercial building.
