Pest management for offices and commercial properties

The commercial real estate landscape is crowded. As the workspace continues to evolve, businesses are looking for contemporary, technology-enhanced spaces in which to set up shop. Whether you’re operating office buildings or mixed-use spaces, the competition to attract and retain these tenants is at an all-time high.

However, pest problems can impact tenant satisfaction and prevent new tenants from leasing space. Left unchecked, pest problems can quickly spread from space to space or office to office.

Rentokil Steritech’s integrated pest management solutions can tackle even the toughest pest issues with the sensitivity required in today’s modern commercial properties, from offices to co-working spaces and multi-use spaces. Our highly-trained local pest control experts will work with you to understand your property’s unique needs and pressures so that they can customize a plan that not only eliminates problems but helps to deter future infestations.

Consequences of pest problems in commercial properties and office environments

Pests such as cockroaches, ants, mice, stinging pests, termites, and even birds and bed bugs can quickly disrupt a workspace or your property’s environment. Not only are they unpleasant for employees, but many pests also carry harmful pathogens that can make people sick, exacerbate allergies, and create serious contamination concerns. Even bites and stings, although rare, can cause dangerous allergic reactions. In addition, some pests and the mess they leave behind can cause damage to equipment and structures.

Most common commercial property and office pests

Office environments can experience issues with a wide range of pests, but these are a few of the most common:


CockroachesCockroaches can invade spaces where food and moisture are plentiful, including employee break areas, restrooms, and desks where employees may store food. Rentokil Steritech’s general pest control programs can address this common pest problem and make recommendations to help you prevent future problems.

Mice and ratsMice are very common intruders in offices as they are attracted to spaces inhabited by people. Although rats are less common, their presence can be extremely disturbing to tenants. In addition to feeding on food, crumbs, and other refuse, rodents can chew on electrical wires and cabling, taking down power and critical networking equipment and creating fire hazards. Both are capable of spreading bacteria and other pathogens through contact and the droppings they leave behind.

Ants - Ants are a frequent problem in offices, attracted to food, water, and even electrical conduits. Every ant problem is unique and requires proper identification of the ant species to solve. Rentokil Steritech’s experts have specialized programs to address specific species and resolve your ant issues.

Termites - One of nature’s most destructive pests, termites can silently destroy your property for years before you ever know about the problem. Rentokil Steritech’s termite experts will monitor and bait for termites with the award-winning Sentricon® system with Always Active™ technology is a year-round service that offers continuous peace of mind. They can also propose other solutions for active problems to help you protect your business.

Stinging pests - With many commercial properties evolving into full-fledged campuses that offer amenities for round-the-clock workers, outdoor areas are often just as important to maintain as indoor areas. Stinging pests can pose a risk to anyone on your property. To tackle dangerous stinging pest issues quickly., your Rentokil Steritech team will put together a customized plan of action

Bed bugs - As bed bugs have become established in North America, offices are seeing increased issues with these biting pests. While bed bug problems in offices don’t often develop into full-blown infestations, they can be introduced unknowingly by employees or guests and cause distress to workers. Rentokil Steritech can quickly and discreetly address these types of problems.

BirdsBird excrement is corrosive and can erode stone and metal on structures. Their feathers and droppings can also clog HVAC units and affect air quality.
