If you walk into a business and notice a cockroach scurry across the floor, would you turn around and walk out the door? Having cockroaches in your business is an absolute nightmare! Not only do they turn your customers away, damaging your reputation, they are also a dangerous health risk. A cockroach infestation spells nothing but trouble for a business, especially if that business happens to be in the food industry.
Roaches are quick and extremely mobile. They can climb walls and cross ceilings, slip through cracks and small holes, and some even have suction cup feet to attach themselves to boxes and other equipment allowing them to be transported easily from one location to another.
These pests feed on almost anything that could even remotely be considered as food. Cockroaches are not picky. They’ll eat human food on countertops just as easily as rotten garbage in the trash or crumbs on the floor. If you’re not storing food in airtight containers, not cleaning up food messes quickly, or leaving food out for long periods, then you could be inviting cockroaches into your business.
They’re not only repulsive and pesky, they also cause a risk to human health. Cockroaches are known to be carriers of several nasty things like viruses, pathogens, bacteria such as salmonella and even parasitic worms. As they scurry across floors, run up walls, and climb over countertops, they contaminate every surface they come in contact with.
If you or any of your customers have sighted a single cockroach in your place of business, there could be thousands more of them hiding behind your walls.
