Read our latest blog to understand the link between odour and pest problems, and how odour management can help prevent pest problems.
At Rentokil we believe that pest control for your business can only be effective if it's based firmly in the principles of Integrated pest management (IPM).
Integrated pest management employs a combination of practices including current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests, their behaviour, biology, and interactions with the environment to eliminate the root cause of a pest infestation.
IPM is based on four principles we call ERDM: exclusion, restriction, destruction and monitoring, and is something we have discussed in previous blog posts, such as 3 Signs your pest control is working.
Prevent pest infestations by preventing odour
This blog post, which focuses on odour prevention, actually falls under the restriction component of ERDM. Restriction is all about containing the spread of pest infestations throughout your business through the removal of food and harborage sites.
And the reason a blog on odour control falls under restriction is because the source of nearly all odour problems is either rotting food or standing water, and both are an attractive food and water source for many pests.
By putting these tips on odour prevention into practice, you'll not only be preventing odour, but also restricting pests access to food and water, thus making your premises less inviting and containing the spread of pest infestations throughout your business.
Here is our handy checklist of 9 pest prevention best practice tips for odour management:
We're certain that implementing these best practice tips for preventing odour will go a long way to eliminating the problems associated with odour and the pests that rotting food, moisture, mould and blocked drains can attract.
