In any facility where food is handled, stored or prepared, proper pest management is critical to operating a safe, clean and regulatory-compliant business. This is true whether it is a restaurant, cafeteria, cafe, warehouse, or manufacturing facility. Wherever there is food, there is a risk of infestation, and restauranteurs, and other food business owners and managers need to be aware of these risks and their options for prevention and treatment.
Challenges in Restaurant Pest Control
Restaurant pest control is a challenge for those in the food service industry because the abundance of food, ideal moisture and temperature conditions, and various pest harborage sites create optimal conditions for insects and rodents to live. Adding to the challenge is that incoming shipments often bring with them new pests. Additionally, management should be advised that heat, moisture, steam and grease—factors that are outside the control of pest professionals—tend to reduce the effectiveness of products used in pest control.
The visibility of a pest by a customer can hinder a restaurant’s business. However pest sightings by customers are not the only pest related concern facing restauranteurs. Food contamination, and maintaing a pest free preparation area also require consideration.
