Keeping your Site Pest Free
Construction sites are seen as a potential risk area for workers at the best of times so having pests roaming free, contaminating PPE and other equipment is the last thing needed. Hygiene in eating areas is paramount as pest infestations can cause significant problems and potential illness of engineers and crew. If health inspectors find severe evidence of pest activity then the site could potentially be shut down. This will then eat into the tight time frames, resulting in the loss of monies and reputation.

Whether it be a one off treatment or a long term pest control maintenance programme, know we’ll get the job done. We will show discretion by working out of hours where required, well away from staff and sub contractors to avoid getting in the way.

Common Pests in Building site
The most common pest related issues in construction is drainage. We all know that most of the rats live in the sewers, so when new builds, or complete renovations take place, sewer lines are opened which allows rats an easy exit and entry onto your site.
Open food and litter left in the designated eating areas will attract rodents such as mice, rats and squirrels. Sweet liquids, such as jams or honey will entice a number of crawling and flying insects also.
Another potential source of pest control worries is workers unknowingly transferring pests from home – fleas and bedbugs can travel in tool bags which could then infest a newly renovated property resulting in a companies reputation being affected.
