Pests can present serious problems for business owners. Customers can be chased away when they find pests in a business establishment, and they may share their negative experiences with other people in online reviews.

Pests can also accelerate equipment depreciation and lead to the termination of lease agreements.

When regulators are notified about pests in your establishment, they may conduct an inspection of your facilities in an attempt to find pests. When pests are found, regulators have the right to shut down your business due to poor sanitation.
