Businesses around the UK were forced to close down abruptly when the country went into its third lockdown in January. There is finally light at the end of the tunnel however as 12 April marks the highly anticipated date many sectors can start reopening.

Among the many things you’ll be thinking about right now, should a pest control audit be one of them?

Do I need a pest control audit?

Pest control audits are always good practice for any business. They are however, especially important in a post-lockdown world for a number of reasons.

• Many premises have been sitting empty for three months (four for tier 4 areas). This makes a very attractive prospect to pests because they’re left undisturbed and have free rein of the place
• If you didn’t have time to prepare your building for closure, food sources and easy access points could have attracted pests
• Winter is a common time for pests to make their way indoors
• Hygiene is more important than ever and customers want to know you’re doing everything possible to keep them safe
• Full-blown infestations can be costly which is the last thing any business needs right now. If you catch them early however, they’re much easier to treat
• An infestation could lead to closure until it has been dealt with. It would be incredibly frustrating to have to close your doors so soon after reopening so it’s a good idea to deal with any potential issues now
• It prevents future outbreaks so you can focus on running the business smoothly
• It gives you complete peace of mind
