Shopping Centers & Retail

Shopping Centers & RetailWhen University Termite & Pest Control approaches clients in this arena, there is one of two hats we typically wear.  The first is when we are performing services for the centers’ Management Company.  These services typically involve the exterior of the structure only.  Most pest control companies perform a basic exterior treatment and then leave.  This is just one example of where and why University Termite & Pest Control separates itself from the competition.

Your treatment technician will always go the extra mile, examining the property to identify sources of potential problems and eliminating existing ones, often before tenants even report them to management!  We search for rodent harborages; identify landscaping issues that can allow pest populations to thrive. We take pride in the fact we educate our clients to better manage pest issues. How much easier is it to address a potential problem before you get that call from a tenant demanding pest control services?

University also recognizes these retail centers are magnets for nuisance birds as well.  Each time your technician arrives, they perform a visual scan of the building, looking specifically for birds on your structure.  We do this to try to minimize the cost of removal.  A few pigeons residing in or around a sign are a relatively simple issue to resolve.  Hundreds of birds living on the roof, making noise and a mess are a pest problem on a much larger scale.  We partner with our management companies to anticipate these problems and avoid a large payout to resolve such problems.

The second hat University Termite and Pest Control technicians wear is as direct liaison when we contract with the tenants themselves to manage their interior spaces in a retail center.  This is where our 47 years of experience really pays off.  We understand the ins and outs of all the different types of retail spaces.  We anticipate the challenges of having your unit next door to a restaurant; we know that you cannot control the sanitation of your neighbors, but still need to maintain your space in a cleanly and safe manner.

Regardless of which hat we are wearing at the time, or what your pest control needs may be, the key to successful pest management within any retail environment is a five-fold combination of evaluation, planning, execution and communication followed by precise and calculated follow up.  University has been fine tuning this formula for over 41 years. Our professionals expertly interpret the challenges unique to your situation and customize your treatment protocols, all the while maintaining our focus solely on achieving a pest free environment for you and your business.
