What’s the best word to describe a small retail business owner? Busy. Whether you’re behind the counter, helping customers, calling in orders or handling a multitude of other tasks, your days are busy and full. While you’re in the front of the store taking care of business, pests could be in the back setting up their own shop.

Inspect your dumpster and trash areas for pest activity, but Terminix Commercial can.
