Keep Out Unwelcome Guests
Proactive pest control is important for hotels not only because of their vulnerability to pest threats, but also because of their impact they can have on the reputation of your hotel.
However, this does not mean that the cost of protection is excessive – the important thing is to recognize the risks that different parts of a hotel face and then develop service program’s to meet them:
Kitchen and Dining Areas
The kitchen, restaurant and other dining areas need particular protection from mice, rats, flies and cockroaches that pose a high risk of spreading disease. Proactive treatment is essential in these areas and will be expected by environmental health inspections.
If pests are not adequately controlled, they will move from food preparation and storage zones into dining and other areas which may cause nuisance or distress to your customers.
The biggest pest threats to hotel accommodation areas are bedbugs and other biting insects.
Bedbugs are becoming a major issue in hotels in many parts of the world. All hotels are at risk from bedbugs, but especially those where there are large numbers of international travelers or those that have patrons that move frequently between hotels.
Prompt action against bedbugs is key – early detection and treatment ensures that they do not spread to other parts of the building. As well as treating and preventing bedbug problems, Pestoman can help you to train your staff to look for signs of bedbug problems to ensure early detection
