Pest Control for Food Safety
Pest Control is a monthly maintenance task. You can contact a pest control company to provide this service for you. In some states it is required by the Health Department to use a professional service.
A restaurant deals with a lot of food storage and you don’t want to take any chances of damage caused by pests.
Some tips for controlling pests are:
Fly elimination begins with locating and eliminating the material in which the flies are feeding and breeding.
Rodent removal and Control: Special attention to product selection is necessary for eliminating rodents in restaurants. It is illegal and unsafe to use snap traps or rodenticides in any area where food is being prepared or served. Never use any rodent control item that might contaminate food or utensils with baits, poisons or rodent body parts.
Controlling Cockroaches: Unfortunately for restaurant owners, bakeries, catering companies, etc, pest control can be a two edged sword. On the one hand trying to keep roaches – especially german roaches at a low level of infestation can cost thousands of dollars a year. Still – an occasional cockroach ruins someones meal. Also if someone sees a cockroach, then almost certainly the rumor begins to spread, resulting in unpaid meal tickets, lost customers, visits from the local health official and in the worst case scenario – a lawsuit.
It’s best to leave it to the professionals. Call IKARI at today at (+65) 67431313 for your peace of mind, knowing that your restaurant is well-protected against pests.
