Pest Control for Restaurants
Not surprisingly, restaurants – from fast food joints to five-star establishments – are natural magnets for pests. They provide easy access to an abundance of food sources in a temperature-controlled environment, which is ideal for pests to hang out.
While several species can be problematic in food service settings, rodents, cockroaches, flies, and stored product pests tend to be of the utmost concern for restaurant owners and operators. And, with good reason, as an infestation can result in food contamination, fines from health departments, damage to the restaurant’s reputation, and temporary or permanent closure, in the most severe cases.
Restaurant owners and operators should also make it a point to educate their staff about proper sanitation practices and pest prevention. In these cases, IPM Specialist can help to educate employees. These efforts will go a long way in protecting the establishment from health code violations and keeping its reputation intact. Contact us today to set up your first inspection.
