How can I get my staff on board with our company’s pest control program?

Question: How can I get my staff on board with our company’s pest control program?

Answer: Employee participation is an essential part of any business’s pest control efforts. Your staff members see and hear things on a daily basis that you may not notice. Equipping them with some basic pest control knowledge can help improve efficiency and save your company money in the long run.

Start by training your staff on the specific pest pressures your property faces and often-overlooked signs of pest activity. Most reputable pest control providers will offer complimentary, on-site training sessions.

Then, be sure to establish open lines of communication between employees, management and your pest control provider. Assign roles and responsibilities to make sure there someone has an eye on each potential pest entry point and attractor. Also, a structured pest-sighting protocol can help ensure your employees know what to do in the event of a pest sighting.
