Everything You Need To Know About Commercial Pest Control In Houston


Houston is known for a few things: the best chicken-fried steak in Texas, space exploration, and killer music, to name a few. However, with great things come great responsibilities, and pest control in Houston shoulders one of many.

This vibrant city is host to many kinds of pests, from black carpenter ants in Houston to venomous scorpions, along with plenty of inner-city rats and, of course, cockroaches too. So what's there to do about this? Well, when it comes to commercial properties, these and many other pests can get everywhere, so it's important to know what to do, and more importantly, whom to call. With over 35 years in the business, all of us at Greenforest Termite & Pest Control know exactly how to deal with these kinds of problems.

What Does Commercial Pest Control Entail?

Pests in your Houston business will quickly ruin your reputation and impact your bottom line. Therefore, it's essential to have a professional pest control plan in place. At Greenforest Pest Control, we work with you, your schedule, and your unique pest problem to develop a customized plan. Our process includes the following steps: 

  1. Inspection: We perform a detailed inspection of your property, checking all the areas where the pests may be found (I.e., Entrances into your property, the dark corners underneath where termites will build mud tunnels to fit their moisture needs.) If we can't begin treatment the same day of the inspection, we schedule a date that's convenient for you to begin the work.
  2. Treatment: We treat your property accordingly with up-to-date pest control practices. Our treatment process also includes recommendations to prevent a future pest problem.  
  3. Follow-Up: We schedule times in the future to check for the pest issue according to your needs and budget.

When it comes to understanding local area pests, we pride ourselves on our thorough, up-to-date knowledge and practices. When identifying the pest problem, we analyze your unique situation and develop a discrete solution to your particular problem. 

How To Tell If You Need Professional Pest Control

We believe every professional business needs a year-round pest control plan. Prevention is the best way to keep pests out of your business facility. However, suppose you don't have a plan in place and begin to notice the tell-tale signs of infestation in or around your property. In that case, it's time to partner with a professional before pests impact your reputation. A few examples of common pests and their warning signs are as follows. 

  • Rats: These rodents tend to leave long, dirty smears on the bottom of furniture and baseboards from running around at night. Also, keep an eye out for places around your home with gnaw marks, as rats chew to stem the growth of their teeth. 
  • Cockroaches: Cockroaches can be spotted by their oval-shaped bodies and large antenna that can be the length of their bodies. They're attracted to the outdoor trash cans and any food scraps. 
  • Stinging Insects: Stinging insects of all kinds will go anywhere they deem it hospitable to nest. Many feed on nectar, so they'll like to go anywhere with nice landscaping. Yellow jackets, like other insects, also like to forage for food in our trash. If you find a nest, it's best to call for professional help as a painful, venomous sting can cause health concerns.

We deal with many other local area pests. Depending on your pest problem, we will choose a treatment option that works for you. We offer all state-of-the-art treatments, including liquid treatments, perimeter sprays, granular treatments, de-webbing, de-nesting, and even gel baiting.

Is Professional Pest Control In Houston Worth It?

It can be a daunting or even impossible task to handle pest control on your own. Pests will threaten the cleanliness of your facility, the safety of your employees, and your reputation. People come to you because they want the best that's offered, and if they see signs of pests on the premises, it will impact your bottom line. They may look to your competitors or even write a bad review. Regardless, you want to do everything possible to keep your customers and your employees happy.
