Budgeting Termite Control Into The Small Business Equation
 

By Tamara E. Williams

When you set out to open your first business, termite control and similar services probably won’t be one of the top things you consider placing in the budget, but in all reality it probably should be. Yes, you must have countertops, cash registers, and a truck to haul deliveries back and forth. However, nobody wants to frequent a store selling anything, even clothes, if insects or rodents are clearly present.

In addition to the fact that these bugs gross out customers and staff, they subsequently damage company property including the very building it stands on. Small ants have even been known to take up residence inside of large models of machinery, resulting in damage and electrical shortages. Both rats, roaches, and several other types of insect can destroy a stock of office supplies in just a day or two.

Even if you have a liability insurance provider who is able to cover the damage done to your store room or machinery, it won’t cover the loss of business, revenue, or reputation that follows these incidents. There is also no way to recoup the time you were out of business or experienced limited business because of loss and damages from an insect or rodent infestation attack of this magnitude.

There is no reason to think that just because you don’t distribute food products you’re not affected by these troubles. Termites have no interest in food, but they do adore wooden structures and furniture, and though bugs such as roaches enjoy a good snack, they also like plastic bags. Furthermore cold weather and precipitation are known to bring them in, as they are in the search for a safe place to hide. The main insect most business owners are fighting, the termite, can survive for years off an office’s wooden desks.

Termite control, as well as other forms of pest management is a critical component of protecting a small business. There are several different companies that provide a full range of extermination services, including that which is aimed at termites, for a good price. Because most pest control companies realize that business owners do not want clients seeing them around, they provide a wide range of hours. They will come by several times throughout the year to offer preventative work and survey the area for any signs of a problem.
