Do restaurants need pest control?

Pest control is an integral part of food safety. An infestation of cockroaches, mice, or flies can contaminate food and put your business at risk of being shut down. Pests must not be tolerated in a restaurant, and a well designed pest control program is imperative to monitoring the possibility of an infestation.

How do restaurants control pests?

Restaurants can control pests through a variety of methods, including:

  • Exclusion: This means preventing them from entering through vents or open doorways
  • Sanitization: Restaurants can avoid pests by properly sanitizing both indoors and out to discourage pests from coming closer to the building
  • Monitoring: By proactively monitoring storage areas, restaurants can prevent an infestation of certain pests.

If, despite your best efforts, you’re dealing with an infestation, then reaching out to an experienced pest control company is your best bet. Thorn provides rodent and stored product pest control for businesses in Utah. We understand the importance of keeping your store both safe and sanitary, which is why we don’t actively use pesticides in restaurants. 

Instead, we prefer to work closely with every business to manage and prevent infestations. Contact us for fast service today.

How often should pest control be done in a restaurant?

The frequency with which you should hire pest control services in restaurants depends on the overall risk. Restaurants with heavy pest pressure may need pest services more frequently than those with rare or occasional situations. Thorn recommends monthly inspections for many commercial establishments, but weekly or every other week is ideal for venues that serve food.

How do I get rid of rodents in my restaurant?

Restaurant pest control almost always requires hiring the pros. An experienced pest control company like Thorn will provide an assessment and the offer the following rodent control solutions to mitigate the problem:

  • Take steps for exclusion
  • Offer sanitation solutions
  • Make recommendations for trapping in the right spots, 
  • Create pre-baiting traps
  • Remove harborages

What should food workers do to prevent pests?

To keep pests out of restaurants, avoid attracting them with easy food access or offering easy opportunities to access your establishment. Employees must be coached on best practices to aid in preventative measures and understand the impact of having pests in a restaurant. 

It’s best if you install well sealed doors and keep them shut (not propped open). Keep your dumpster area clean, employ good sanitation practices indoors and out, clean drains, and encourage staff to report any pest issues  so pests can be managed quickly, efficiently, and discreetly.
