How We Help Your Business
Elders Pest Control Commercial Services
Division work one-on-one with businesses to develop
customised commercial pest management programs
to help them minimise the chance of a pest infestation.
A pest infestation can wreak havoc on your business.
If a customer sees a pest in your establishment, it
will probably mean losing that customer - and maybe
a lot more.
Consumer behavior research has shown that 9% of hotel
guests, for example, will tell at least 10 others about
a negative experience. But negative perception isn't
the only problem with pests. They also carry many pathogens
that can cause serious illness in humans. That's why
health inspectors will often shut down food premises
with pest infestations.
Why put your reputation and the health of your customers
and staff in jeopardy? Contact
Elders who will work with you to help keep pests
out of your facility.
Why Commercial Pest Control is So Important
Pests in a commercial environment aren't something you
can 'just live with', for so many reasons!
- Reputation management: Consumer behaviour research
has shown that one hotel guest will tell at least ten
other people about their negative experience. This number
rises exponentially when you consider the popularity
of websites like TripAdvisor.
- Employee and customer health and safety: Whether
in a commercial or residential environment, insect and
rodent pests have the potential to cause diseases like
salmonella, streptococcus, leptospirosis, iron deficiency
anemia, necrotizing tissue problems, Ross River fever,
tapeworm infestation and even the bubonic plague. In
a commercial environment, the responsibility for treatment
and perhaps punitive damages comes back to your business,
making commercial pest control a smart investment.
- Customer comfort: Even if no diseases are transmitted,
fleas, mosquitoes, flies and bedbugs are an annoyance
to live with.
- Potential for fines: As you'll know, any business
involved in food preparation must have a commercial
pest control program in place as part of their licensing
requirements. You could be fined or prevented from operating
if this condition is breached.
Commercial pest control is a critical business
practice. If you want assurance that your business is
