As a business owner in the current economy, you already have plenty of things to worry about. From managing employees to finding new ways to attract customers, you’ve got a lot on your plate. The last thing you need is an infestation of bees stinging your customers and employees. If you’ve noticed lots of bees flying around your building, or if you’ve spotted a hive hanging from the eaves, you should call a pest control company right away.
Understanding the Risks of Bee Infestations
There are multiple ways in which a bee infestation can prove costly for business owners. For starters, having dozens of buzzing bees flying around your commercial building can convince customers to take their business elsewhere. Unless the problem is taken care of quickly, your business’ reputation may suffer. Bee infestations can also become a liability issue. If you have employees who have allergies to bee stings, an infested workplace can be dangerous. Likewise, it’s impossible to tell which of your customers or clients might have allergies to bees. A pest control company like Essential pest can help protect your business from legal liability.
Calling for Professional Help
Do not try to remove a beehive by yourself. Instead, call a professional pest control company to deal with it for you. A technician can remove the hive safely, without posing undue risk to your workers or customers. Professional pest control services might even be covered under the terms of your company’s insurance policy.
Reducing Your Risk of Recurrent Infestations
After a pest control technician removes the beehive from your commercial building, there are a few things you can do to reduce the chances of a recurrent infestation. If you own a restaurant, you should make sure all the tables are cleared promptly after the guests leave. Leftover food and beverages can attract pests. Make sure all the garbage cans have lids that fit tightly. You should also get potential entry points sealed off so the bees cannot build nests in wall voids.
