Although it’s colder outside, rats can still be a problem for restaurant owners. These rodents dig through garbage all winter long in order to find sources of food. Without NJ rat control, this could lead to big problems for your restaurant in terms of cleanliness and safety. Keep the following in mind to protect your property from rats this winter.
The dumpsters on your property are one of the biggest sources of food for rats. Having lids that aren’t closed tightly and a lot of easy access to food can result in a rat infestation during winter. Make sure that the dumpsters on your property are securely closed at all times, and keep containers or bags with food inside dumpsters sealed as much as possible.
When rats know they can find food in your dumpsters, their next step could be going inside your restaurant. Rats can get into small openings and gaps anywhere on your property. Identifying and closing these entry points helps keep them out. Delivery personnel and employees should use caution when opening and closing doors, so rats don’t sneak in.
Rat Prevention Tips
Other ways to keep rats away include cleaning up spills and sweeping up food debris as quickly as possible. Trash from inside should also be emptied daily.
