Rats are not only harmful to your brand, they have the ability to contaminate your company’s product with their droppings, feces and hair, as well as cause serious and extensive damage to your facilities. Rats and other rodents may also expose your employees and customers to serious health conditions that include Salmonellosis, E-coli infections and respiratory diseases such as Hantavirus.
Rat sightings can lead to immediate loss of customers, as well as reduce employee satisfaction and productivity.
Rats and other rodents will damage stock, contaminate food and compromise your company’s reputation.
Costs incurred due to a rat infestation can be considerable and may result in large financial loss.
While all commercial facilities are susceptible to rodent intrusion, warehousing facilities, food and non-food retail operations and restaurants are especially sensitive to rat activity, as is the agriculture industry as a whole.
Because we understand that a rat problem can seriously harm your company’s reputation and lead to financial loss, Sprague offers highly effective commercial pest control and more specifically rodent control services. Our rodent control program is designed to target rats and other commensal rodents including:
The house mouse
The Norway rat
The roof rat
We realize that an effective rodent control program must include measures that eliminate food, water and harborage that is necessary for rodents to carry on the breeding process. That’s why we implement strategies that not only resolve existing rodent infestations but also focus on prevention. Available for businesses in Seattle, Portland and throughout our coverage area, our rodent control starts with a thorough inspection for rat or mouse activity and includes:
Implementation of bait stations
Exterior preventative trapping, including rat and mouse traps
When you partner with Sprague, we’ll evaluate your sanitation practices and building maintenance and work with your company to improve areas that are susceptible to intrusion, as well as correct conditions that encourage rodent activity.
