Like any good restaurant business owner, you probably make daily efforts to ensure your customers are clean and comfortable. However, we both know that however clean restaurants are, space itself inevitably attracts pests. That’s why Truly Nolen leaves you some tips to know how to deal with these pests in the best way possible.
Knowing how to detect habits
The best way to understand whether or not you are facing the presence of a pest is to detect signs of its activity, even before seeing the insects or rodents. Most pests are most active at night, leaving traces of their presence to be seen during the day.
If you see excrement on the floor or countertops, marks along the walls, gnawed wood and baseboards or even food with marks in your establishment, chances are you are in the presence of unwanted customers.
The first thing you should do is call a professional as soon as possible so that the infestation does not spread further.
Consequences of the presence of pests
When pests become part of the regular clientele, the results can be costly. They constantly gnaw and spoil materials, tear up food containers, contaminating them with their paws, saliva and excrement. Thanks to their sharp teeth, mice and rats can easily tear up garbage bags, scattering garbage throughout the restaurant.
Once a comfortable spot is found, pests are likely to breed quickly, creating a serious cleaning problem and jeopardizing your ability to comply with health codes. The truth is, lack of follow-up when it comes to pest control can have a serious financial impact on your business.
