Mosquitos These pests get in through opened doors and windows, and they not only harass employees and customers, they bite.
Wasps and Bees These pests also come in from the outside, and of course, their stings are painful.
Bed Bugs Bed bugs infestations have dramatically increased in recent years, and these insects don’t just live in beds. They can also be found in cracks and crevices of furniture throughout an office.
