Differences between commercial and residential pest control

Commercial and residential properties may have the same goal when it comes to pest control—to prevent and get rid of unwanted pests—but there are some key differences that are important to note when it comes to pest prevention and extermination.

Some of the differences between commercial and residential pest control include:

  1. Size: Depending on the business, the size of the property is often much larger (think of warehouses, factories and hotels) than a residential property. This means it’s harder to keep clean and there’s more space for pests to enter and hide.
  2. Occupancy: There’s typically activity in homes on a daily basis, whereas businesses may only be open Monday through Friday and are empty at night. This means that, outside of business hours, rodents and pests have free rein in commercial properties and may be more comfortable and harder to get rid of.
  3. Types: Homes and businesses aren’t usually located in the same part of town and could be haunted by different types of bugs. In addition, some industries are more likely to attract unwanted critters than others because of what they produce (restaurants, food manufacturers, etc.).
  4. Regulations: Commercial properties are subject to stricter regulations, including health codes, than residential buildings. This means a pest control approach for a business owner could be more aggressive than that of a homeowner.

To prevent pests and rodents from residing in your property, a professional pest exterminator is recommended.

Sharon P, Waterproofing & Repair

We had extensive water intrusion that our inspector did not see. Thompson Brothers had to engage in grading, extensive digging, reinstallation of French drains, and install a new drainage field. The work was excellent. All personnel is polite, on time, and very professional. Highly recommend.
