When you own a business or commercial property, avoiding a commercial pest infestation is significant. The earlier you spot a potential pest problem and get a professional to deal with the infestation, the better. Here are five signs you may have a commercial pest infestation on your hands!


Regularly inspect your property and products, making sure you inspect areas that may be covered for urine trails or fecal droppings. It is of the utmost importance that you complete a thorough examination. Finding rodent droppings in your place of business is no fun, but being aware of the first signs can save you in the long run.

This is extremely crucial in establishments such as hospitals and hotels to examine bedding so you don’t end up with a bed bug outbreak.

Grease Spots and Tracks

Rodents are creatures of habit and tend to take the same paths when they travel leaving a greasy trail behind. Inspect your establishment for any grease marks or tracks to avoid a mice or rat infestation.

Damage to Physical Property

Damage to wood such as furniture, exposed or decks can signal that you may have a termite infestation. Mice and rats tend to leave gnaw marks on furniture or wiring. If you notice any damage to your property it is important that you contact a pest control expert to identify if there is an infestation and deal with it promptly.

Damage to Plants

Damage to your lawn such as patches, uneven grass, or large dead patches can signal that you may have a rodent or bug infestation. Be sure to check your garden as well for signs of damage to vegetation.

Signs of Nesting

Performing a regular and thorough inspection for evidence of nesting is extremely important when it comes to commercial pest control. Nests will most likely be hidden in places such as underneath floors or decks and even in between walls. Rodents will make nests out of almost anything they find including leaves and even shredded paper.

Ensuring you have a proper pest control program in place can save you from any future infestations in your home or business before they happen. Getting rid of pests by yourself or with a do-it-yourself method can be stressful and time-consuming; depending on the type of pest these methods don’t work a lot of the time.

If you do discover you have an infestation or suspect you are on the brink of one, then you should contact a professional pest control expert. A reputable company can assist you with eliminating the issue, and provide you with a pest management program to avoid any future problems.
