Food Service in 2020 is a whole new world. COVID and the restrictions for bars, restaurants, and fast food businesses in Pittsburgh and the surrounding counties of Beaver, Butler and Lawrence Counties has never been like this. This is not the time for your place of business to have a pest problem. Customers are hyper-sensitive to the potential of transferring disease into their homes from any source. As we write this blog, we are aware of the uptick in the desire for people to get back to normal. We were just at a fast-food restaurant in Cranberry Twp. Today they had at least twenty people waiting for order pickup today at lunchtime. If you are the owners of any takeaway food service outlet, you know your employees have turned into production machines and they do not have the time to clean up as diligently as they should be.
Food Service Pest Control
It comes as no surprise that, restaurants – from fast food to white table cloth establishments – are natural magnets for pests. These outlets provide easy access to an abundance of food sources in a temperature-controlled environment, which is ideal for pests to thrive in. While a number of species can be problematic in foodservice settings, rodents, cockroaches, flies, and pantry pests tend to be of the utmost concern for restaurant owners and operators. And, with good reason, as an infestation can result in food contamination, fines from health departments, customers freaking out in your shop and temporary or permanent closure, in the most severe cases.
