Restaurants & Foodservice

For today's health savvy consumers, nothing is more disturbing than encountering pests when dining out. The presence of pests implies unsanitary conditions, and it can quickly torpedo a brand's reputation. Today's consumers are more likely than ever before to share their experiences – through word of mouth, review websites, and social media. 

Pests can damage products and supplies, be cause for health department closures, and, most concerning, put the public's health at risk by spreading harmful bacteria in kitchens and public areas. 

Rentokil Steritech's unique approach was developed in response to growing public health concerns. Using the most innovative products, equipment, and treatment methods, we eliminate active infestations within 45 days. Further, Rentokil Steritech implements preventive maintenance and monitoring plans to combat against invading pests. 

There's no question – your establishment must be a pest-free environment. With Rentokil Steritech, pests are not tolerated at any time, under any circumstances, for any reason

Core Pests for Restaurants & Foodservice

Patrons of restaurants expect to enjoy a satisfying experience without worrying about cleanliness, hygiene, and safety. Pests can quickly ruin that enjoyment, and most critically, put customer health at risk by contaminating food. Rentokil Steritech wants to help you ensure that your food and guests are safe. With our service, the most frequent pest concerns are covered: cockroaches, common ants, rats, and mice. 

Based on a detailed evaluation of your facility, Rentokil Steritech will design a program to meet your needs, taking into account factors such as structural integrity, environmental pest pressures, and potential for activity. We'll develop a comprehensive plan for service on both the interior and exterior of your restaurant, ensuring that you have round-the-clock protection against pests

Rentokil’s Restaurant and Bar Industry Expertise

Ants at a restaurant can send the wrong message to customers about cleanliness and tarnish your brand's reputation. Certain ant species can be extremely difficult to eliminate and cause property damage, and one particular species can put your guests at significant risk. Fire ants can inflict painful stings and swarm when disturbed, attacks that can be fatal to small children or the elderly. 

Rentokil Steritech has developed specialized protocols to combat atypical ant species such as fire, carpenter, hairy crazy, white-footed, and ghost ants, addressing the unique concerns posed by these pests. Targeted programs for both the interior and exterior of your restaurant are focused on eliminating any current infestations and deterring future issues – safeguarding your guests, and your brand, from harm

Integrated Bird Management for Restaurants & Foodservice

With roosting and nesting areas such as building facades, sign lettering, and large parking lots with streetlights, as well easy access to food, restaurants are a prime environment for birds. Unfortunately, birds can deter and even harass customers, driving away business. More importantly, a single bird's droppings and feathers can carry and transmit over 60 diseases. This makes them a serious health and safety concern – they can compromise air quality, damage equipment and structures, and create an unsightly mess. 

Rentokil Steritech's Integrated Bird Management Program safely and humanely solves nuisance bird issues through an innovative and comprehensive solution of trapping, removal, and targeted exclusion techniques, focusing on the areas of your restaurant environment most susceptible to bird activity

Occasional Invaders for Restaurants & Foodservice

Certain pests can create issues at restaurants based on season, geography, or environment. This group of occasional invader pests, which includes crickets, box elder bugs, stink bugs and lady beetles, can appear in large numbers and disturb guests. 

Using our approach, Rentokil Steritech has designed specialized protocols to service for occasional invaders, focusing on the specific pests' unique biology and behavioral traits to treat and eliminate them. Beginning with a detailed inspection both on the exterior and interior, Rentokil Steritech will devise a customized program to address the occasional invader concern at your restaurant – keeping your establishment free of pests.

Flies for Restaurants & Foodservice

Flies are vectors of disease, spreading bacteria wherever they land. In restaurants, flies annoy guests and signal cleanliness issues and can drive away business. More importantly, they contaminate food and surfaces in the kitchen, lobby, restaurant, and bar areas, exposing people to health risks. 

Rentokil Steritech begins on the exterior of your facility, where large flies breed and develop before making their way inside. A comprehensive fly baiting program targets fly hot spots, such as dumpsters, to kill flies before they have a chance to invade. Inside, we will install appropriate insect light traps and perform residual applications to ensure that flies that do find their way inside are eliminated. This monthly service provides multiple levels of protection to ensure that your establishment and guests are protected from harm

Stored Product Insects for Restaurants & Foodservice

Because restaurants handle a limited amount of dried food and grain products, certain areas of your facility may be the target of stored product insect infestations. These pests can feed on any number of products, causing contamination issues, resulting in unusable product, or worst of all, resulting in an issue with your dining guests. 

To address stored product insect issues such as Indian meal moths, saw-toothed grain beetles, red and confused flour beetles, and rice weevils, Rentokil Steritech has developed targeted service protocols. 

Your Service Specialist will conduct a detailed inspection, focusing on food storage areas containing dried goods such as flour and pasta. Then, we'll physically remove any infestations we uncover, apply residual products and insect growth regulators to provide lasting protection, and install special pheromone monitors to alert us to the potential for new activity. 

In addition, your Service Specialist will work with your staff to educate them on how to prevent issues from recurring, building an impervious defense against stored product insects at your restaurant.
