Ecopest: Rats & Mice Outside Your Business
Sitting in the parking lot of a local food establishment I was admiring the landscaping and then from the bushes came a mouse that scampered by running as fast as it could to the next set of bushes. So I began to think about the restaurant that I had just purchased food from and whether or not they had a problem with mice inside. Not very appetizing.

As a business owner what goes on outside your restaurant can be just as important as what goes on inside. I was turned off at the thought of mice in or around the restaurant, but being in the pest control business I understood that the business owner may not be aware of the mouse issue going on outside. If there is one, there are more guaranteed. Your reputation could be at risk if you let a mouse issue get out of control. Restaurants attract mice and rats because of waste bins that your patrons have deposited trash in, as well as trash they’ve thrown out of their vehicles that didn’t quite make it into the trash receptacle. Let’s not forget the restaurants main trash bin where all the interior trash is discarded. Free food for birds, mice, and rats.

Take notice of what is going on outside the business, empty trash bins regularly and instruct employees to inform you of any rodent activity they may see. If you don’t already have a pest management company that performs routine services on a regular basis contact Ecopest Pest Control and schedule your free consultation. Our number is 256-274-1716.
No one loves a fly, but they do play a vital ecological role by pollinating plants and are a food source for other creatures. However, a fly infestation can have a negative impact on humans. Flies carry diseases such as Salmonella and E. coli and can lead to food poisoning. Fly control is essential to help prevent foodborne diseases but also typhoid fever, dysentery, and rotavirus just to name a few.

Flies are a nuisance and left unchecked can mature from larva to an adult fly in as little as seven days and can lead to an infestation. When flies infest an area such as your home or even a business it is necessary to take immediate action to protect your family and patrons of your business.

An Ounce of Prevention – Preventive Actions You Can Take...
Fly control prevention includes first and foremost preventing flies access.

As Alabama residents, we are all well aware of the insects that thrive in the hot, humid weather of our beloved state. Here is a re-cap of the pests to keep an eye out for especially they are out of control.

Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes are among the worst this season with all of the rain we have seen this month. Look around your home for standing water. Mosquitoes will lay their eggs in standing water found in around your property and Mosquito control is a must here in Alabama. Removing standing water is just one way you can prevent mosquitoes from taking over and making your summer miserable. More important protect your family from these deadly disease carrying pests. Kill adults by having your yard sprayed and baited for better mosquito control.

Ants

Here in Alabama we certainly have our fair share of ants. Ants range from native fire ants to other fire ants species that have been introduced such as red and black fire ants. Let’s not forget carpenter ants. Each species is out and about foraging for food for the colony and if given an opportunity can and will make their way into your home in search of food and water. Keep things tidy and keep in mind that you are inviting pests closer to your home when you leave pet food and water bowls outside. Be proactive and have a professional pest control company spray your home inside and out to prevent an ant invasion.
