Why is pest control important?

One must consider the health and well-being of staff is the most important thing, but there are also other reasons why professional pest control cannot be dispensed with.

One is related to the care of the facilities since various organisms affect the wood, as in the case of termites. In this case, the foundations can rot and cause serious damage.

When this situation is too advanced, large amounts of money must be invested in replacing entire installations. Causing serious economic loss as construction work has to be done, furniture has to be replaced and even the building has to be vacated and work days are lost.

What it means to cohabit with microorganisms, insects, or rodents?


All pests are potential contaminants and transmitters of diseases that, in many cases, can be extremely serious. A poorly sealed crack, a clogged drain, an accumulation of rubbish, or poor hygiene in a given facility can be the entry valve for insects or rodents to buildings inhabited by man. Let’s consider that these animals carry pathogenic microorganisms on their skin, legs, and digestive system, which they will later deposit as infectious agents on food and utensils that are used by man. The risk to people’s health is evident.


The economic losses derived from the appearance of termites in buildings are estimated annually at millions of euros. Other xylophagous organisms, such as woodworm, cause great damage to museums, works of art, tapestries, or insects or pigeons, whose presence in urban cases causes the deterioration of architectural heritage.


The lack of hygiene in any building creates deterioration of work relations, whose most common manifestations are panic, physical and psychological discomfort, and the consequent loss of productivity.

A Pest Control Company can help reduce the risks and diseases caused by insects.
