Stadiums & Arenas Pest Control
Pest management can often become a struggle when dealing with high foot trafficked areas. Stadiums are often a location that contains large amounts of people and food. Our team works together to identify the problem, obtain a solution, and then work on prevention treatments. Our services and techniques are guaranteed to eliminate even the most challenging issue.
Stadiums offer challenges due to their schedule, operations, and the large amounts of food debris created during events. In addition, these large, complex operations require specialized programs for concessions, engineering, stands, storage, employee areas, parking areas, and grounds.
Effective programs are designed to meet the unique needs of each facility.
Stadium Pest Control
As stadiums are back to operating under a higher capacity, the pest problem can quickly become an issue. These arenas can seat a few thousand to hundreds of thousands of spectators. Given the number of people congregating in these venues, it is essential to have an effective pest management program to protect spectators, players, and staff from potential pest-borne illnesses.
Pest management programs for stadiums should focus on preventing pests from gaining access to the stadium in the first place. This preventative approach can be made by sealing cracks and crevices in the building exterior, maintaining cleanliness throughout the facility, and storing food properly. Once inside, stadiums should be regularly monitored for pest activity and treated accordingly.
While most stadiums are fully insured, pests can easily damage the structure causing numerous issues.
On a surface level, birds can drop many times within an hour, and the increase can break down a structure. Pigeons can create structural damage to numerous areas and often spend a lot of time frequenting the same places. Bird spikes, traps, and repellents are often utilized to eradicate the issue.
Rodents also become an issue and can harm the venue. Rodents are known to chew on cords and damage walls. Again, University Termite and Pest Control is well versed in the signs of entry and treatment options specifically for you.
Pests come in all shapes and sizes and can very quickly pose a problem when trying to run a successful business.
Due to the amount of food debris at a stadium, many pests can become an issue. Therefore, our staff understands the importance of detection and prevention.
The most common pests found in stadiums are:
Flies are known to reproduce quickly and can easily become a problem. It is a common misconception that flies will not become a problem due to their short lifespan; however, how quickly they lay eggs, the once small amount of flies can quickly become an infestation.
These bugs tend to swarm around warm places and places where food has been left unattended. One thing employees and spectators shouldn’t have to worry about are flies swarming on their fun. Our team ensures effective treatment and prevention plans for every pest.
Pest control services are utilized everywhere to treat and prevent future infestations. While many pests can cause problems, cockroaches are well known for their ability to spread diseases. Cockroaches spread many diseases like E. Coli and salmonella from one food source to another.
Hot spots for cockroaches are places with food and places near wood. However, they prefer to rest on wood, making various places at a stadium at higher risk.
Our experts reduce and eliminate entry points and remind you what keeps them coming. They can be attracted to something as small as crumbs on food carts. Our team works not only to identify the problem but to educate to enable prevention.
Rats & rodents
Rats and mice can carry bacteria and cause secondary infections to employees and customers. This risk is taking it upon ourselves to stop pests in their tracts and prevent them from transmitting diseases and causing structural damage.
Rodents will constantly defecate, chew on cords, and can damage expensive equipment. Even their urine can transmit zoonotic diseases – leptospirosis being the most common and can cause acute fatal liver failure.
They enjoy hiding and getting around through small holes that they create, so keep an eye out in the janitorial closets, bathrooms, and storage areas for droppings and gnaw marks. Once you see that, contact us for a free estimate and let us get started in your rodent management.
It often comes as a surprise when customers hear that birds can be considered a pest.
Birds can cause physical damage, carry disease, and contaminate food. In addition, the amount of dropping a bird can produce can quickly pose a problem to a building’s structure. The continual droppings slowly break down the structure and can amount to a high cost for repairs.
Birds often spread fleas, ticks, and lice. As the number of birds amounts to more and more, it is essential to control the site.
Stadiums are a high-traffic ground for concessions. Birds can easily pester and infiltrate the area resulting in loss or contamination of food. Our team uses strategies and techniques to eliminate any problems.
While most people see an ant and label it as an ant, there are certain species to be more aware of and more dangerous than others. In addition, various types of ants require different treatments, and it is our goal to find the problem and treat it accordingly.
Hairy crazy and Pharaoh ants are hardy, hard to exterminate, and reside near electrical units. However, if left unchecked, this can cause shortages in patient monitoring equipment up to starting a fire.
Fire ants can also be seen in a stadium and pose a big problem for families and employees.
It is important to note that there is almost always more nearby when one ant is seen. Infestations can happen fast, and when that happens, you need an experienced pest management company. That’s where we come in.
