Little creatures like mice may look adorable, but don’t let such appearances fool you!
Rodents can contaminate food and supplies, pose a health and safety risk to employees, and cause monetary damage to the company. It is essential to take suitable measures to control rodents in the workplace and protect workflow, food, and other supplies.
What Preventive Measures Can Be Taken?
- Eliminating food sources - Food sources are a primary reason rats come into the workplace. If you can eliminate their food sources, you will also be removing the rats themselves. Be sure to clean up spills immediately and seal containers properly.
- Sanitation and cleanliness - Clean kitchen and dining areas, storage areas, and garbage cans will deter rats from living or nesting within these places.
- Avoid leaks and holes - Rats are often attracted to water sources. Additionally, seal off any gaps around pipes, doors, and vents to avoid entry by rats.
- Keep work areas well-lit - Rats and other rodents may be deterred if they cannot easily find shelter. Keeping rooms well-lit can quickly eliminate hiding spaces for rats, as well as discourage them from entering in the first place.
