A pest infestation in an office or commercial building can have serious impacts on your business. Besides the health threats and staff disruption, other impacts can include expensive repair costs, loss of reputation, or termination of rental contract if you are hiring out the building.

At Statewide Pest Control, we have extensive knowledge of how different businesses and commercial operations run and know-how to carry out comprehensive pest management plans that keep your business running smoothly.

Comprehensive pest management solutions

Statewide Pest Control technicians are highly knowledgeable about managing pests in commercial spaces. As a subsidiary of Orkin Australia, we are part of one of Australia’s biggest pest management businesses, which gives us the capability to quickly deploy resources across Victoria or the rest of the country.

We are 100% committed to every business – we provide you with a dedicated account manager and pest technician team who will look after all your pest management strategy, monitoring and service.

Experienced with everything from small business offices to networks of commercial facilities, we design a pest management strategy specific to your requirements. We also meet the requirements of any necessary compliance standard, including HACCP and ISO, and all our pesticides are licensed by APVMA.

Needs-specific pest management process

Every business is different, and so we have a thorough process for understanding yours and providing you with a customised pest management plan:

Step 1. We conduct a free audit of your premises

It’s important we get a thorough understanding of every business we work with, so we can assess your risk of harbouring pests. We:

  • Understand your daily operations and how spaces are used
  • Understand the building design and identify pest entry points and hiding areas
  • Assess your existing pest reports
  • Inspect the surrounding environment

Step 2. We assign you your own pest control team

No matter what size business you are, we are dedicated to keeping your premises free of pests. To succeed in this, we give you a personal account manager and pest control technicians, who keep a close eye out for pests and their management throughout your facilities.

Step 3. We plan out your pest management program

Once we thoroughly understand your premises, operations, and associated risks, we design your integrated pest management program with three main focus areas: inspect, identify and treat.

This can include:

  • Building maintenance and exclusion practices
  • Advice on good housekeeping and hygiene
  • Pest management inspections and monitoring
  • Physical control methods
  • Chemical control methods
  • Managing the surrounding environment

Step 4. We use PesTrak to keep you up to date on your progres

Our proprietary PesTrak system is a bait station monitoring tool that shows you all your baiting activities in real-time and allows us to keep a close eye on your facilities. If you call us or we get an automatic alert about activity in a baiting station, we can remotely check your facility and take action if required.

If you are audited for your pest control, all your compliance-related documents are kept together on the PesTrak platform where you can access them anytime 24/7, 365 days a year.

Legislation, compliance and standards

We are across all required standards for commercial pest control. We use the PesTrak system to allow you to keep your records of all pesticide applications and all of our pesticides are registered with APVMA.

We are also compliant with the following standards:

ISO compliant

If you need ISO compliance, we can adopt ISO standard pest management services within your premises to meet both internal and external requests. Our pest control strategies are compliant with your ISO accreditation.

HACCP certified

If you serve food, we are certified to apply pest management that meets HACCP standards for your food areas.

Other certified standards

For any other standards you need, we can roll out a pest management solution that meets both your internal and external pest management requirements.

Pests common in offices and commercial buildings

Termites

Termites feed on wooden structures and are responsible for millions of dollars worth of damage every year. Once they infest a building, they compromise its stability and safety.

Termites can go unnoticed for a long time, and by the time you do notice changes, it can be too late. We recommend getting a regular termite inspection and can provide necessary prevention and treatment systems.

Cockroaches

Cockroaches are attracted to any areas with food, such as commercial kitchens, rubbish bins, and communal eating areas. They spread diseases and can contaminate any stored food.

They are also very fast breeders. The common rule is that for every cockroach you see, there are ten more hidden out of sight, so it’s essential you get professional pest control in as soon as you spot one.

Ants

Ants are attracted to any areas with food, such as kitchens and communal eating areas. They carry diseases, but more significantly disrupt staff and have you lose credibility with customers. Ants are quite difficult to control, but we have proven, effective solutions for eradicating them in many different campus settings.
