Here at Southwest Exterminators, we love to help mom & pop restaurants. Most family owned establishments want to offer the best service at the best price to their neighbors. We, as members of this community, often help these home-town hero’s by offering superior service at a reasonable cost. The following are things we look for during mom and pop restaurant services.
First our highly trained pest control professionals will identify specifically what the pest issues are. Typically the issue is with cockroaches and ants. Each pest species has slightly different habits and biology and therefore we customize the service to their establishment and time of the year. Each of these pests requires our technicians to inspect different areas around the restaurant to determine the infestation level and cause. We then eliminate as many causations of the pest problem as possible.
In other words, we find the needs of the pests (food, water, and hiding spots) and then eliminate them prior to chemical applications. This strategy lowers the over-all chemical application made in and around restaurants while offering superior control of the pests
German cockroaches are the most common in restaurants. Therefore, we pay particular attention to areas near food and water. The German cockroach requires more moisture than other kinds of local cockroaches and will usually be near a water source. It also prefers not to travel too far for food, so hiding location will normally be near the food sources.
Once we have made a thorough inspection and are relatively sure where the bigger problems are, control can begin. One tool we use is the new high-powered vacuums. We have customers who rave about our ability to suck large populations of roaches out of hiding for immediate reduction of the population without leaving a chemical residue. Next we use a myriad of control technologies; dusts, baits, sprays, aerosols, and monitoring stations are among these.
Each restaurant is different and therefore, each service is slightly different. Also, as the seasons change some pest pressures will increase and others will decrease. It takes a truly trained pest control professional like those at Southwest Exterminators to offer on-going protection to our neighborhood mom and pop restaurants.
If you have any questions about restaurant services, pest control, or insects in general please call our office at 435-628-2700 ext 2. Thank you and have a great day.
