We know, cockroaches are gross. But have you ever actually encountered them in a business? Chances are you have not returned if you found there to be roaches crawling around. Turning away customers is just one of the many threats that cockroaches impose on commercial facilities in Minnesota and surrounding Midwest states. The experts in Minneapolis pest control and pest prevention at Plunkett’s would like to share a few reasons why cockroaches and commercial facilities don’t mesh. There are many concerns when it comes to having cockroaches. And while proper sanitation is critical, sometimes despite efforts to support that, these bugs are still able to sneak in and cause problems. Some of the most troublesome threats of a roach infestation includes:

  • Contamination of surfaces and food
  • Spread of diseases and harmful bacteria
  • Allergies and asthma especially in children
  • Serious damage to the image and reputation of the business
In conjunction to your business’s current pest control services, learning how to pest-proof your facility to keep roaches out is very important. There are many ways in which businesses can ultimately protect themselves from a negative impact of roaches and even worse, contamination and health issues. Here are the top cockroach prevention tips for businesses:
  1. Take trash out regularly from all areas of business
  2. Be sure dumpsters are not right next to the facility
  3. Keep doors to the facility closed as much as possible
  4. Secure any open windows or doors with screens
  5. Store open food in containers that close air tight
  6. Sanitize food surfaces before and after each use
