Food Service & Restaurant Pest Control
How It Works
Why is Pest Control Important in the restaurant and food business?
When it comes to food, customers expect the utmost cleanliness. Pests can compromise the hygienic environment you strive to maintain. Your reputation is important to you, and we will help you uphold it.
What are the most common Pests found in a restaurant?
The pests most commonly encountered by food service and restaurant owners are rodents, cockroaches, fruit flies, drain flies, and ants. Restaurants with outdoor seating areas are also vulnerable to problems with biting insects, like mosquitoes.
What are the signs of a Pest infestation in a restaurant?
Droppings, nests, and property damage are perhaps the most obvious signs of an infestation. Damage to plants, food containers, and the food itself are also telltale signs. Grease marks and grease trails along walls and floors are a sure sign of a rodent infestation.
What are the first things you should do if you suspect a pest infestation in your restaurant business?
Traps are a great way to minimize pest activity. You should also be sure that all food is stored in airtight containers, and garbage cans and dumpsters should be emptied regularly.
Cleanliness is key in avoiding full-on infestations, so make sure to clean all food prep and storage areas thoroughly. If you see signs of an infestation, you should call our experts and set up a free consultation immediately. Infestations can get out of hand very quickly, jeopardizing the health of your workers and customers, as well as your hard-earned reputation.
