Museums not only suffer from the everyday pests you may think of, but they can also be subject to unique pest pressures. Silverfish
can do damage to paper and books, mice
can and will chew through almost any material to make nests and migrate through your building, and your cafe or restaurant can be home to flies
in places that you might never suspect.
The most important pest control strategies for a museum are built into an Integrated Pest Management
plan. The IPM approach we use are meant to keep pests away from your visitors and your collection in the first place. While a negative review about pests in your museum can hurt a reputation, the items in your museum may very well be one-of-a-kind and irreplaceable. The risk of damage to artifacts is high depending on the pests that are present. Proper identification of the pest is important but based on the identity of the insect and the strategy we implement is based on the analysis done by our expert Entomologists. We understand that and act accordingly – offering a variety of monitoring, inspection, and control options for insects like carpet beetles
and clothes moths
. But you need more than just pest control. With more people coming and going, we can offer you a professional disinfectant treatment
as well. We’re more than just pest control.
