The change in seasons leads to a rise in activity among typical restaurant pests. Pest prevention and elimination should be a regular part of your sanitation program. Keeping unwanted rodents and insects from entering your restaurant can be time consuming and costly. Not only does it require an involved staff member to monitor and control outbreaks, you could potentially lose product if the infestation goes unnoticed for just a short period of time.
Taking the time to implement preventative measures can save hundreds of dollars that could be put to much better use. It may seem that you don’t have issues with rodents, but be assured, where there is trash there are pests. Adopting a strategy to deal with these intruders BEFORE they are a problem is the best plan, saving hundreds in exterminator fees if you do get infiltrated.
