OccasionalSeasonal Pests Ecolab EU

Occasional or seasonal pests, sometimes referred to as "Occasional Intruders' are any number of insects that enter buildings seasonally. These insects normally live outside and venture indoors by accident or by instinct as they search for food, water, and shelter from hostile elements such as extreme cold or heat. In most cases they do little or no damage, but their presence can be a nuisance to your customers and employees.

The Nuisance of the Occassional Intruders

Occasional intruders are insects or other arthropods which enter a structure and will not typically reproduce indoors. While they do little or no damage, their presence is definitely considered a nuisance.

Well known occasional intruders include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Centipedes
  • Millipedes
  • Crickets
  • Processionary Caterpillars
  • Earwigs
  • Silverfish
  • Woodlouse

These pests can be found in virtually any location inside a structure due to their wandering around an unnatural habitat. Occasional intruders are often found near windows or other openings, as they try to leave the building.

Occasional intruders generally cause no health or structural problems so long as they are in small numbers. However, an infestation could trigger allergies or become a sanitation issue. When visible, these insects can be disturbing for your customers or employees to see. Usually people don’t differentiate between casual intruders and pests that carry disease. This can create a negative image and damage impressions. For these reasons, occasional intruders can be just as harmful as frequent invaders such as cockroaches or fruit flies.

Ecolab’s comprehensive pest programme can help protect your facility by establishing an exterior barrier of protection and repellant zone around your building, as well as removing the intruders from your building. With our on-site consultation, data-driven reporting, customer support 24/7/365 and educational tools to raise staff awareness on how they can prevent pest activity.

When you partner with Ecolab Pest Elimination experts, you can be confident you are getting innovative, science-based solutions to keep your customers and staff safe and your facility pest-free.
