Rat Infestations are enormous in Fife, Puyallup and Tacoma. Specifically
hitting businesses such as restaurants but also residential areas. Rats
reproduce at a high rate making pest control services a necessity.
The rats priority is to find shelter, water and food.
Rats are a big nuisance:
The rodents dirty lifestyle leaves behind messes of urine, droppings and
even afterbirth. Rodents can and will dig into insulation in attics and
crawl spaces. Rats gnaw on electrical wiring and door weather strips that
can cause damage. Fires can be a result of the rodents gnawing on
electrical wires. The three mentioned areas restaurants were all hit with
restaurant rat infestation. Far too big to try and take care of alone. The
owners did research and decided to contact AMPM Exterminators to eliminate
the problem. The restaurant’s bottom line is at risk.
How to get rid of rats:
Professional Pest Control technicians first step is to do an inspection to
find where the rats have infiltrated the restaurant. A perimeter check is
done to locate cracks, holes and crevices that need to be sealed. The rats
have to be stopped for any means of further entry into the restaurant. It’s
equally important to find out precisely where and how the rats are
accessing the food supply. A thorough and overall check of the premises
will be done by an AMPM Exterminators technician.
How do Restaurants get rat invasions:
The physical makeup of a rat gives easy access to restaurants through entry
points the size of a quarter. It cannot be stressed enough why the
professional eliminator’s priority is to do a perimeter check of the
premises. Sealing all cracks, holes and crevices around the structure of
a building immediately is to safeguard further access into the restaurant.
Rats love smorgasbords:
The AMPM Exterminators Pest Control expert inspected the entire premises.
There are many places to check for rats in any type of restaurant. Floor
drains need to be tightly sealed. Trash cans and garbage dumpster lids need
to be securely closed. Kitchen equipment and appliances must be cleaned on
a daily basis. Never leave unwashed items in the sink. Drains should be
free of food garbage. Rats can sniff out food in all possible places. Check
all opened boxes or food storage bins daily. Rats are ingenious in finding
ways to hide and nest.The nasty pests can run but can’t hide when AMPM
Exterminators comes in to eliminate the infestation.
Proper sanitation and preventative measures:
Proper sanitation is imperative for the restaurant owners. Keeping the
premises clean will be one of the deciding factors in keeping the business
open and profitable. One of the mandatory restaurant rules is that the
outdoor garbage bins and indoor trash can lids must be tightly sealed.
Think about the smorgasbord that is being being offered in the garbage
containers. A major contributing factor to the Fife, Puyallup and Tacoma
Rat Infestations are open garbage dumpsters behind or next to the
restaurants. All kitchen equipment should cleaned and sanitized each and
every day. Employees should be cleaning throughout the day. Managers and
owners should spot check the restaurant often. The perimeter of the
building also should be checked in a regular basis. Kitchens and pantries
are rat magnets. Do not leave leftover food on stoves and counters and
wipe down all surface areas. Leaving back doors open or ajar is a welcome
sight to the rodents that gives easy access. Restaurant owners can only
stay open if precautionary measures are taken. The restaurant owners will
be protecting against the loss of income due to a rat infestation. It only
takes one customer to see a rat or mouse and that is the worst publicity to
get. People will get on cell phones and possibly calling the Health
Department. Customers leaving behind unpaid tabs behind which would
definitely prove costly. Then the bottom line is not a pretty sight.
All three restaurant owners hired AMPM Exterminators:
The Fife, Puyallup and Tacoma Restaurant rat infestation is on the rise and
the restaurant owner need AMPM Exterminators to take care of the rat
infestation. One restaurant owner did everything possible to investigate
and even set traps. But the self-help methods did not work. Only a few rats
were caught in traps and nobody wanted to get rid of the dead rodents.
Which meant there were dead rats sitting around causing foul odor and the
opportunity for airborne bacteria was high. The best decision was made to
call AMPM Exterminators for the professional expertise needed to
exterminate the restaurant rat infestation. A parting thought would be to
protect your asset, the restaurant and property. AMPM Exterminators was
able to get rid of the rat infestations and the owners opted for a
recurring monthly service to prevent future rat issues. The services proved
beneficial that the owners went for bi-monthly services. Satisfied
customers and successful exterminations for the cities of Fife, Puyallup
Rodents, and large vertebrate such as raccoon, opossums, squirrels and cats can infest attics and crawlspaces causing damage and creating health issues.
