Why you need pest control for sporting facilities
Sporting facilities, such as large dance halls, indoor basketball courts and even private yoga studios, are areas where humidity can build up. Sweat, damp towels, and constant wiping down equipment can encourage pests.
Cockroaches are attracted to damp areas. Although these pests are shy, they can be more visible once their numbers reach a threshold. A cockroach infestation can affect your reputation and brand, especially if children attend your facility.
Another pest we often find around sporting facilities is rodents. Most gyms, sporting centres and studios have vending machines or even offer snacks over the counter. Food left in lockers or not disposed of properly attract rats and mice. They may have a nest nearby.
Whether it’s for your dance studio, leisure centre or sporting complex, call 1300 270 019. Speak to our experts and book a pest inspection.
Where are pests most active around sporting facilities?
Sporting facilities vary in size, location and activity. But they can all attract pests. This is because they usually have a high concentration of people meeting together and building up a sweat.
Insects can enter through open doors. If your building is older, rats can enter through cracks in the walls, roof or flooring.
Pests are attracted to water and food. While your venue isn’t a dedicated food outlet, kids bring snacks after school and adults come with their own protein bars.
Areas to watch out for pest activity include-
- The outer perimeter of the building
- The spectator area
- Car park
- Toilets and change facilities
- Larger areas like basketball courts can get birds roosting in the rafters
How you can reduce the risk of pests in your sporting facility
Our pest technician may recommend ways you can decrease the likelihood of pests in your venue. These could include
- Making doors close automatically
- Moving garbage bins or skip bins further from the entrance
- Repairing cracks or damage where pests can enter
- Fixing water leaks
- Placing bins in spectator areas and emptying them daily
Keep pests away with safe, effective treatments
We can tailor a pest treatment for your sports centre. Ants, cockroaches and flies can be regularly treated, creating a safe venue and potentially saving your business reputation.
Target rodents and other pests with SMART technology
Flick has developed SMART technology that works in conjunction with your pest control strategy. It’s discreet and can keep on top of potential pest problems before they get out of hand.
Sensors detect activity in real-time. Rodent and pest activity is recorded live, and our technicians respond proactively. Safe baits are placed where activity is highest. So, you can respond with real-time statistics based on number and frequency.
We find that technology combined with traditional practices keeps rodent numbers and pests under control.
Our Flick technicians will regularly inspect, empty and relocate SMART units when needed. Armed with SMART data analysis, we provide you with essential information to take action and stay ahead of pests.
Flick can create a tailored treatment plan that works with your venue. Call 1300 270 019 and get your sports facility inspected by a professional.
