One of the best ways that you can keep pests out of your commercial property is to come up with some of the best preventive measures. This will make it harder for the pests to get in and wreak havoc on your business or make anyone sick. But how do you make sure that you use the right preventive method to make it harder for them to thrive? You will need to consider both the cultural control and the physical control when you come up with a plan.


First, we can work with cultural control. This will seek to provide plants and animals with a healthy growing environment. You can also move this around a bit to create an environment that is good for the plants but bad for the pests that are trying to get into the building as well. Some of the things to consider when you want to work on cultural control includes:

# The fertilization of the plants

# How you water them. If you put too much water, you end up with a mess and great breeding grounds for the pests.

# Site selection: You want to keep the plants far from the property so there are fewer entry points for the pests to use.

# Plant selection: Some plants will be a deterrent to the pests so that you won’t have to worry about them anymore.


You can also consider some of the physical control to help keep the pests away. These methods are ones you are probably more familiar with as well. It can include things like food containers, screens, and floating row covers so that the pests are not able to get into the building at all. You can even do physical repellents, lures, baits, and traps to make it harder as well. Proper pet grooming can prevent things like fleas and ticks and mulches will keep the weed growth down. These simple steps will make it harder for the pests to find their way into your property to cause a mess for your business and for your customers.
