Commercial Pest Control Contracts

Performing pest control services for commercial properties typically involves a systematic approach to identify, manage, and prevent pest infestations.
Conducting surveys as part of a commercial pest control contract is crucial to understanding the specific needs of each property and tailoring the pest management plan accordingly.


Here's a general outline of how pest control commercial contract surveys might be conducted:

  • Initial Assessment
  • Site Inspection
  • Pest Identification
  • Risk Assessment
  • Customized Pest Management Plan
  • Preventive Measures
  • Client Communication
  • Contract Agreement
  • Implementation and Monitoring
  • Reporting

All surveys include full risk assessments in the following areas:

Initial Assessment:

Meet with the property owner or manager to discuss their pest control needs and concerns. Understand the type of business conducted on the property, its size, layout, and any unique characteristics that might impact pest control. Identify any previous pest issues and the measures that were taken to address them.

Site Inspection:

Conduct a thorough inspection of the entire property, both interior and exterior. Identify potential entry points, harborages, and conditions conducive to pest infestations. Check for signs of existing pest activity, such as droppings, nests, damage, and live insects. Note any areas with moisture problems, food storage, waste disposal, and structural issues that could contribute to pest problems.

Pest Identification:

Identify the specific pests present on the property, such as rodents, insects, birds, or other wildlife. Determine the level of infestation and the extent of the problem.

Risk Assessment:

Evaluate the potential risks posed by the pests identified. Some pests might pose health risks, damage property, or violate health and safety regulations.

Customized Pest Management Plan:

Based on the findings of the survey, develop a customized pest management plan. Outline the specific treatments, techniques, and methods that will be used to address the identified pest problems. Specify the frequency of visits and ongoing monitoring that will be required.

Preventive Measures:

Include recommendations for structural and sanitation improvements to prevent future infestations. Suggest modifications to the property that will discourage pests from finding harborage or food sources.

Client Communication:

Present the survey findings and the proposed pest management plan to the property owner or manager. Address any questions or concerns they may have and ensure they understand the plan.

Contract Agreement:

Once the client is satisfied with the proposed plan, finalize the commercial pest control contract. Clearly outline the services to be provided, the schedule of visits, and the associated costs.

Implementation and Monitoring:

Execute the pest management plan according to the agreed schedule. Continuously monitor pest activity and adjust the plan as needed based on the effectiveness of the treatments.


Provide regular reports to the property owner or manager detailing the actions taken, pest activity observed, and any recommended adjustments to the plan.
