Pest Control for Businesses, Schools, Food handling facilities, Grain storage and more
Pest Control for the various types of businesses and other organisations, such as schools and hospitals, need special attention. Not only are the pest issues subtly different to those in residential pest control, but the needs of the owners and managers are different to homeowners and the requirements from legislative point of view are different. Go Pest Bendigo have the qualifications, experience and systems in place to meet your needs.
What type of businesses and organisations do we service?
Food handing establishments – There are strict pest control requirements on food handling establishments (restaurants, food storage and manufacturing facilities). A robust pest management process and documentation is required to keep the facility pest free and meet regulatory requirements.
Warehouses – typically require rodent and bird protection services
Schools & Health facilities – Keeping these facilities pest free, whilst ensuring treatments are discrete and prevent accidental contact is vital
Hotels – Keep rooms pest free and ensuring an active bed bug management plan in place, are vital to protect the guests and the business from adverse publicity and litigation
Grain storage – rodents and stored product pests are the common problems. In addition to developing a management program, Go Pest Bendigo have the fumigation licenses to carry out treatments as required.
What commercial pest control services do we provide?
General pest control services
For many business and food establishments, our general pest control services are designed to keep your premises free from the typical pest control problems – cockroaches, ants and spiders. We can carry out ad hoc treatments, or although more commonly agree a service plan depending on your requirements. Typically this will be monthly, quarterly or annually.
Rodent management is often an ongoing activity for many businesses and organisations. Go Pest Bendigo tailor our commercial rodent programs to each situation. Depending on the level of activity the frequency of servicing will vary. With safety a priority, we always use lockable, secure bait stations.
Pigeon and bird
Go Pest Bendigo provide bird management services to businesses across Central Victoria. The focus is on bird exclusion and we design systems using a variety of products to prevent birds nesting, entering or resting in and around buildings.
Bed bugs bite humans for a blood meal. They can be very difficult to control and need a comprehensive inspection treatment and management plan to eliminate the problem. Go Pest treat a large range of domestic and commercial sites for bed bugs, using a range of techniques to eliminate the pests. For hotels and motels we can provide guidance on bed bug management.
Although termite inspections and protection is a key focus for homeowners, termite management is still an issue for business owners and facility managers. Termites have the ability to find wood in any building if the conditions are favourable – there are plenty of examples of termites getting into steel framed and concrete slab commercial buildings to eat furniture, fixtures and fitting and paperwork!
Annual termite inspections are a minimum requirement for all buildings (commercial and residential) and depending on the situation, it is often recommended that an termite management be installed around the building (soil treatment or baiting system). With buildings one of the key business assets, it makes sense to protect them from termites, as termite damage will not be covered by your building insurance.
