Do you have bees and wasps, ants and other insects around the business because of the dumpster? Does the dumpster attract these insects because of left behind residue and the problem is severe when the weather is hot? If so, you want to treat the issue before someone gets hurt by the pests and before you end up with pests inside your commercial building. Here are a few of the things you can do to get rid of the pests once and for all.
Call the company you lease your dumpster from to see if you can get a new dumpster that is sanitized and doesn't have any debris. Replacing your dumpster will remove the source of the pests, and it removes what the pests are attracted to. You can also be sure to enforce better practices when tossing items that are sticky or smelly, and that will attract the pests to come back in the future.
Pest Control Treatment
Have pest control professionals, such as those at Expert Pest Management, come to the commercial property to spray for insects around the dumpster or where the dumpster was, and to treat around the building. If you have bees, there could be nests around the property in areas where you can't see. If there are ants or flies in and out of the dumpster, you may want to have your commercial building sprayed or bombed on the inside, and then you should have the exterior areas treated.
After the first initial pest treatment, have the pest control experts come back for a follow up appointment. With the follow up appointment you can have them see if they got all the insects that were in or around your property, and you can have them see if any new problems or insects have started to invade your space.
The amount of injuries that need medical treatment annually because of pests is staggering, and you don't want to pay for your employees to need emergency medical treatment or care because you neglected to take care of the insect problem around your dumpster. Instead, have your dumpster replaced or have it cleaned so the pests don't have anything that they're attracted too any longer, and make sure you have the first aid kit needed if someone on your staff does get stung. This can help keep your business and your staff members that have to work in or around the building safe.
