Commercial Pest Control Service for Restaurant Business
It is important for commercial establishments, such as restaurants, to remain pest-free for health and sanitation reasons. The most problematic pests in restaurant settings include rodents, German roaches and flies. Not only do these pests evoke the “ick” factor, but they can contaminate food and spread disease. AmeriGuard Pest Defense provides different options for commercial pest control services.
The Riverside County Department of Health has some good tips for preventing restaurant pest control problems in this “Food Handler’s Manual“.
Prevent Commercial Pest Control Problems
- Keep doors and windows closed and/or properly screened
- Install a fly curtain over doorways to keep flying insects out
- Keep things tidy and orderly to eliminate insect hiding places
- Don’t leave food out and ensure all packages and containers are secure and tightly sealed
- Ensure garbage bags are tied tightly and trash receptacle/dumpster lids are secure
- Fix plumbing issues quickly and make sure drains are not clogged
- Eliminate grease and clean up spills
German Roach Restaurant Pest Control Service
Contact a licensed pest control company, such as AmeriGuard Pest Defense, to treat your pest problem quickly and efficiently instead of trying to do it on your own. Often times, over-the-counter products at your local hardware store are not labeled for use around food environments. These products may also only serve to repel the insects and provide a false promise of pest elimination, only to wear off later with the pests having built up their population, thus returning with a vengeance. Trying to take care of the infestation on your own may only prolong the problem and negatively affect your business.

This option gives peace of mind to the restaurant owner and staff knowing that their investment is protected from unwanted pests and negative grades from the health department.
