The harsh winter experienced in much of the United States has certainly taken its toll on businesses. Many additional expenses and hardships have been created from excessive snowfall, frigid temperatures, strong winds and flooding. Ice dams on the roofs of your business can cause water leaks and create damage to walls, ceilings, flooring, insulation and drywall. This moisture trapped in walls and ceilings can be a great attractant to termites and ants. Another potential source of moisture to fight against is flooding around buildings and under crawlspaces due to all the melting snow and spring rains.

With the help of new pest management products during the 1950’s, bed bugs were drastically reduced to very small numbers.
