When you own a restaurant, one of the worst problems to deal with is the presence of pests. Rodents and bugs can cause major health hazards that could make customers and employees sick while also harming your business. Find out more about some of the most common restaurant pests that you might need NJ pest control services for.
Rats and Mice
Rodents, such as mice and rats, can get into your food preparation area and the main dining area in your restaurant. This creates a big problem in terms of public health hazards for your customers and employees. Rodents can spread infectious diseases through their urine, feces and bites. They can also contaminate your food supplies, dishes, utensils and equipment.
Cockroaches can get into your restaurant through the tiniest cracks or gaps in walls. They can spread germs throughout the kitchen and dining area as they roam around looking for food. Cockroaches can also trigger asthma attacks and cause other health problems.
These pests, such as certain kinds of beetles, can get into stored food products and ruin them. While most don’t spread disease, they can still be harmful to your restaurant. Wheat, rice and other stored foods can become contaminated or infested with the eggs of these insects.
