Restaurants and Pests:
What You Need to Know

Restaurants and pests are a bad mix. Unfortunately, they’re also a mix that’s likely to occur. Why? Pests are drawn to two things — food and shelter — and restaurants have both in spades. If you are a restaurant owner or manager, here are a few things you need to know about restaurants and pests.

Clean surfaces to remove food scraps and dissuade pests from entering your restaurant

Unclean restaurants harbor food scraps and other morsels that pests ranging form roaches to rodents will feed on. By keeping food prep and dining surfaces clean, you can dissuade pests from entering your restaurant.

Most pests are drawn to light, so use it sparingly.

The majority of pest species gravitate towards light. For this reason, keep the exterior of your building itself as dimly lit as possible. Instead focus on providing light for parking and pathways to your restaurant with light sources placed a good distance away from your building.

Know your enemy.

Different regions have different pests, but some of the most common restaurant pests worldwide include rodents like rats and mice, cockroaches, and flies. Rodents will give away their presence through visible rodent droppings and bits of chewed up paper or cardboard. Roaches can usually be spotted the moment you turn on the lights in your kitchen or dining area. Flies are easy to find and usually the cause of open windows or left-out food.

Close food containers, trash receptacles, and entryways whenever possible

They are a number of places pests can get into when infesting restaurants. A few of these locations include food containers and trash receptacles, both excellent sources of food for pests. Other areas include doors and windows to your restaurant, both the most common entryways for pests. By keeping both of these locations closed as often as possible, you will help keep pests out of your restaurant.

When in doubt, call a pest control professional

Pests in restaurants aren’t always easy to get rid of. Worse, when a pest problem persists, it can cause damage to your property, your patrons, and your reputation. If you are dealing with pests on your property—don’t tackle the problem on your own. Call a pest control professional for efficient and effective pest control services for your restaurant.
