There are many ways for pests to gain entry to an office and some pests are very adept at searching them out. Thankfully, our experts are able to use our excellent methods and, even in some cases, the use of innovative technology like our thermographic FLIR cameras, to identify the pest and their point of entry, remove them and then prevent re-entry in next to no time at all.

The most frequently encountered pest in UK office environments is rodents. Rodents are very resourceful at finding ways of gaining entry to an office and can use their sharp teeth to chew their way through wires or wood in their pursuit of entering a warm, sheltered habitat. This means that not only does your business have to contend with a pest problem but any damage to buildings they might have also incurred.
Cockroaches are also commonly found within office settings, due to their small size and hiding capabilities. They have been known to be transported from country to country by deliveries of goods where they manage to find crevices within packages. It is the same hide and seek skills which allow cockroaches to find their way into equipment, even things such as a computer would not be safe from a cockroach gaining entry.
As well as their hiding talents cockroaches can also be capable of carrying disease, posing a threat to health and safety staff and visitors alike, and therefore impacting the running of the business.
A common misconception of bedbugs is that they would only really be found in a domestic setting. Unfortunately, this is not true, and a bedbug infestation is a very real problem that could be encountered in an office. By bedbugs “hitch-hiking” between locations any person that has come into contact with bedbugs can then stand the chance of introducing them to the workplace.
Once they are in the premises bedbugs would be able to breed and transfer themselves across the building, taking up residence in swivel chairs, carpet and furniture. This would lead to great problems with employees and might also be responsible for the office ceasing business until the problem is resolved.
Wasps and flies are the other pests that will be commonly found in UK offices. This is particularly prevalent in the summer months when many offices will open windows and doors for increased ventilation. They are unfortunately opening the door for the entry of all winged pests too. Drawn in by the aroma of sugary drinks it is very easy for multiple wasps or flies to enter an office and it is not so easy to evict them once they are there.
If they have begun to breed then this leads to an increasing problem that affects employee’s health and morale, as well as potential health issues from wasp stings.
