Pests In Restaurants - Advice6th of October, 2022
Unfortunately, pest infestations are a common occurrence within restaurants and eating places throughout the country. Rodents and insects are prevalent, particularly in Glasgow city centre and indeed all food sites throughout the country.
Access can be gained through open doors, windows, drainage systems, small gaps and deliveries from suppliers.
What can be done?
- Regular deep cleans are essential to minimize the risk of attracting rodents and offering harbourage to insect pests to live in and feed on.
- Pest control contracts offer a service to check restaurants regularly and thus provide an ongoing record of treatments and findings.This will assist staff too, as we can provide advice regarding hygiene and associated issues which may offer protection against rodent and or insect infestations.
- Installation of electronic fly killers can also assist with the control of flying insects in food preparation areas. Pest-Master can supply an excellent glue board unit that is more hygienic within the confines of kitchens. No risk of insect explosion or the noise of insects hitting the electronic grid.
- Proofing is also a major part of pest prevention within restaurants. Pest-Mster field technicians are available to highlight areas needing to be proofed to deny access and harbourage. Our staff carry all necessary proofing materials and can therefore carry out tasks very quickly if required.
- Waste management is an essential part of pest prevention. Regular uplifts are required to remove all food waste to deny nutrients to pests.
- Staff training- Staff must be on board with training to spot rodent infestations. Being able to spot signs of an infestation is a great way to assist pest control companies. Pest-Master can provide a service to meet with restaurant staff and advise on what to look out for.
Implementing all of the above measures in conjunction with our pest control service contract will help protect food businesses. Peace of mind for owners, staff and also all your customers.
