Common Retail Pests
Rodents such as Rats and Mice are common in the retail industry. This is because of the warm shelters and bedding provided so to create their nests. These animals can gnaw through fabric, soft furnishings, plastics and wood, as well as contaminate stock with their waste costing you money.
Clothing retailers are also under threat from clothes moths which eat natural fibres, like wool, cotton, and silks, but will also chew through blended fabrics as long as they contain some natural fibres. A moth infestation can ruin a shops stock as well as be spread to a customers home which may lead to bad reviews hurting the brand and shops reputation.
Bird control is also another pest to be conscious of. Pigeons and seagulls can deface the front of shops with their droppings which can give the customer a poor perception of your goods. Installing preventative measure to deter these animals is important for a shops image.
