Most business owners in Oklahoma have invested a great deal of time and money to get their business up and running. Imagine all of that hard work, and your reputation, going down the drain the first time a customer sees a cockroach scurry across the floor. Pest control is an absolute necessity for the commercial industries, especially when food preparation is included.
Though there are many steps that a business owner can take to limit their risk of a cockroach infestation, relying on a professional commercial pest control provider is the best way to protect your assets. In many cases, businesses will benefit greatly from preventative pest control services through Emtec Pest Control. This ensures your profits keep coming in and your customers are protected from the bad experience cockroaches can bring.
It is important to maintain proper sanitation methods to ensure your business isn’t an easy target for cockroaches. Trash bins, floors and kitchen equipment should be cleaned daily to ensure no food sources are available. By thoroughly cleaning after close, you can help ensure no residual food crumbs or easy meals are available to these pests.
It is important for business owners to regularly inspect their location for any insects that may have taken up residence unknowingly. Hiding spots will often be dark and not easily accessible; such as behind ovens or refrigerators. If you find evidence of cockroaches, or even rodents, such as feces, skins or abandoned egg cases, call a commercial pest control provider immediately and don’t risk your business.
Exclusion is also an important step in maintaining a cockroach-free business. Any perimeter or interior cracks and crevices could be an entry point that can be utilized by a wide variety of pests. Utilize caulk to fill cracks and install mesh screens on any drains or openings you may have.
