If you own a restaurant, then you know how important it is to keep pests away. In New Jersey, a lot of restaurant owners are dealing with rodent problems. It seems to be an ongoing problem that’s difficult to solve.
But did you know that there are ways for you to keep both mice and rats away? Let’s talk about what you can do aside from calling an NJ rodent control service.
Seal Up Any Holes
You’ll want to do a careful inspection of your restaurant looking for holes or cracks that mice or rats could get through. Installing doorsweeps, weather stripping and heavier screens on the windows and doors are all good ideas.
Maintain Trash Cans and Dumpsters
If you can, try to position your dumpsters and trash cans as far away from the building as possible. That will discourage any mice or rats who might otherwise be tempted to gain entry. Also, you’ll want to clean them frequently to make them less appetizing.
Keep the Kitchen Clean
Restaurants are required to adhere to certain standards of cleanliness in New Jersey, but we invite you to take that one step further. Make sure your staff is cleaning up any spills, crumbs or messes quickly.
