Common Pest Species Found In Offices
Here are some pest species that are often found in offices and that can damage your business if not taken care of immediately.
Cockroaches are one of the insects from the order Blattodea. This order counts over 4,000 species all over the world and around 400 species are native to Australia. These native species have variations in appearance, habitat and diet. All species from this order have originated from the tropical areas of Africa 3oo million years ago and they can range in size from just a few millimetres to a size of Giant Burrowing Cockroach (Macropanesthia rhinoceros) which can be found in Northern Queensland and can grow up to 70 mm.
Unfortunately for us, Blattodea order has a number of insects that are regarded as pests, but no matter what size they are, they all have a similar body which consists of oval shaped and dorso-ventrally compressed body with two pairs of membranous wings and forewings which are sclerotized more than the hind wings. Their thorax which is protected by a big plate called pronotum which extends over the head which contains very strong mouthparts for chewing, compound eyes and long antennas.
Rodents And Mice
Fortunately for you, you do not work in Central America. Why? Well, if you lived there, you would probably come face to face with the largest rodent in the world Capybara which can grow up to 50 kilograms! There are as much as 2000 different rodent species in the world and most of them are small enough to be a food source for many carnivorous animals. Because of a large number of threats that they are facing, they become sexually active at a very young age and they have very short gestation periods with large litters. These factors make rodents a pest which can quickly invade every building or house.
All rodents found in Australia belong to the family Muridae and three pest species of this family belong to the subfamily Murinae. In Australia there are approximately 60 native species. Some of them are well-known like Water Rat, Stick-nest Rat and Bush Rat. These native species such as bush rats and various species of mice can be often found in backyards, so it is not uncommon that people can identify the animal’s species before undertaking a control programme.
Bed bugs are tiny, nocturnal insects that have no wings and belong to the insect family of Cimicidae. They feed on our blood and blood of other warm-blood animals. They have an oval shaped body and can be as long as 5 mm once they reach their adult stage. Bed bugs have a rusty brown body colour which can sometimes be a dark reddish brown. They are often called as red coats, chinches and sometimes mahogany flats. They have been here since the beginning of time and are present in all parts of the world.
While there are many different species of bed bugs, the most common one, the Cimex lectularius is highly adaptable to human environment. They are able to travel great distances with ease as people who travel can carry them in their luggage and clothing. Bed bugs are a very common pest in offices and they can cause severe loss of income in commercial facilities due to the stigma of uncleanliness associated with them.
How To Prevent Pest Infestation In Offices?
The most difficult thing when it comes to dealing with pests in the office is because most offices function all day and night so it can be hard to use the usual pest management procedures. There is no such option as spraying the insecticide all over the place and waiting for it to do its job.
Here are some effective pest management prevention methods that can be used in the office:
- Do not leave or eat food all over the place including your desk.
- Clean all food remains or water spills immediately.
- Cleaning staff needs to empty all trash bins in the office according to a strict schedule.
- Rodent repelling devices need to be installed near potential entry points.
- Pest manager should be called at the first sign of pest activity.
