Dangers of Improper Pest Management
The problem with even a rumored pest problem calls to mind contaminated food, disease, threats to consumer health -- the realities of which can all lead to legal repercussions. The following establishments are smart to be sensitive to these pest pitfalls, particularly:
- Butcher Shops
- Convenience Stores
- Coffee and Café Houses
- Fast Food Chains
- Health Food Stores
- Liquor and Wine Outlets
What makes these businesses so susceptible to pest problems? For starters, the incessant amount of foot traffic into and out of these buildings by customers, not to mention the easy access to food supplies by pests. In these cases, our team knows that a proactive or preventive approach is preferable to the reactive. You want to stop pests before they gain entry; doing so afterward is more complicated and might be made more so by public awareness that there is, in fact, a pest problem.
Most Common Pests Faced By Retail Food Facilities
Though by no means an exclusive list, retail food facilities are primarily plagued by ants, cockroaches, and rodents. Flies, of course, are another concern, given the abundance of food at their disposal. But pests problems experienced by retail food facilities can include other creatures like birds, various wildlife, and toxic mold. Often, you don’t really know what you’re dealing with until you call in the pest professionals at JP Pest Services, who are expert at providing Integrated Pest Management Programs, tailored to your specific business and pest problem.
