Second to your home, your workplace is probably where you spend the majority of your time. We think you would be alarmed at just how many nasty bugs and pests you are unknowingly sharing your office with! Not only are they annoying, but they are also dangerous and can pose huge health risks to yourself and your visitors too.
Workplace bugs include the most common such as ants, flies, cockroaches, drain flies and mice – and the not so common bed bugs and silverfish. A strong indicator that you might have a problem is with the presence of spiders. Spiders, although scary to some, are pretty harmless and they survive by feeding off of other bugs and insects. Therefore, if you have an abundance of spiders then you’ll need to tackle and eradicate their food source.
It is no secret that bugs are attracted to food and will be drawn to an area where food is prepared. Workplace kitchens and canteens are generally quite small compared to the amount of people who are using the area.
Flies will lay their eggs in material found in unemptied bins
Drain flies will lay larvae in and around sinks if not disinfected frequently
Silverfish just love humidity and can also be found around sinks, but around books as well
Ants will go anywhere in their masses and will harbour where there is a good food source
Bed bugs can multiply at an alarming rate and will survive on furniture around the office
Just like in our homes, bugs in the workplace does not necessarily mean you have a filthy environment. The weather plays a huge part in this and also your surrounding environment (such as having an office near water or next to fields etc). Having a daily cleaning routine certainly helps to reduce the risk of becoming overrun with these unwanted bugs and pests.
