Pests can impact on your property’s infrastructure and your stock.

Pests can and regularly do destroy stock and goods on business premises. This is especially true if you operate a food business, but you will find pests like rodents will chew through other items too including metal and wood. Some pests may even impact and cause damage to the infrastructure of your premises. Rodents often chewing wires and can damage brickwork. Rats and mice can easily gnaw almost any material, causing significant damage. Birds may also choose to nest in your roof and roof repairs can be extremely costly. Similarly, if pests get into your stock or merchandise it becomes unsellable. Therefore, you’re once again losing out on profit.
