Why bother with pest control for my business?

Unwanted pests can pose a real threat to any business in a number of ways:

  • Health Problems. Salmonella, Dysentery, Diarrhoea & Stomach Upsets, are all ailments which can be transmitted by pests. These and other sicknesses can affect your customers and staff.
  • Workpace Disruption. Many species of pests cause rashes, bites, itches and sores. These can cause severe discomfort in the work environment.
  • Dissatisfied Customers. When pest problems exist, it could cost you your good public image.
  • Customers expect to be served in safe, hygienic surroundings and demand to be supplied with uncontaminated products.

Health Authority Intervention. Establishments where pests are not controlled are constantly in danger of Health Authority Intervention which could lead to temporary closure.

Pest control is a long-term commitment, and maintenance must be carried out regularly to stop smaller infestations from escalating into full-blown infestations.

Stores should be treated between 1month to 3months, dependant on risk factors.

How you can help to keep pests under control

It is important that any recommendations are followed and carried out, otherwise our pest treatments may be rendered ineffective.This can only be achieved as a joint effort by the pest manager and, even more importantly, the staff of the food premises. Nearly a third of all penalty notices issued in NSW were for unhygienic conditions.

Cleaning thoroughly is also the first step in pest management. In the past some food premises used to only contact a pest manager when they saw many cockroaches, but by then it is too late.

Pests, just like humans are creatures of habit and good tastes, they would prefer to feed on your breadcrumbs, than our baits! Below is a list of the most common pests and some useful tips to ensure your Pest Control Service is effective:

Cockroaches
Once inside the premises the pest will seek harbourage, food and water. Cockroaches have an aggregation pheromone in their droppings – that is why they cluster together – so sealing potential harbourages, such as the gap between stainless steel and tiles can assist in minimising infestations.

  • Declutter all shelves and keep all areas clean and tidy
  • Seal all food in air-tight containers
  • Make sure all grease and food scraps are cleaned daily.
  • Sealing all gaps and cracks
  • fixing leaking pipes
  • Donot leave food out
  • Clean Bins and sinks daily
  • Remove all cardboard boxes

Rodents
Rodents are masters of concealment. They look for quiet places to nest in such as wall and roof voids, sheds and piles of debris. Rats can squeeze through a gap the thickness of your thumb, mice through a gap the size of your little finger.

Baiting is only part of effective rodent management.

  • Keep loading docks and storerooms clean and tidy.
  • Donot leave boxes or cardboard laying around.
  • Store all foods in air tight containers.
  • Declutter all shelves and storage areas.
  • Wash bins out regularly.

Flies
Flies breed rapidly. The larvae feed primarily on the yeast found in fermenting and liquefying items. Over ripe tomatoes, bananas and rotting potatoes and onions are commonly infested.

The liquid that remains in the bottom of beer cans held for recycling can also support vinegar fly larvae. Flies will breed in any soured, decaying substance such as wet mops and accumulations of food particles behind, or underneath kitchen equipment.  Drains have a generous gelatinous growth of scum; can also support an infestation of vinegar fly larvae. The entire life cycle is complete in 8 days.

There is no single ‘quick’ fix for permanent control.  Inspection to find the sources of infestation and then removing or treating it will give the best results.

Promoting good Cleaning and hygiene practices along with use of sprays (targeted and/or with attractants), lures and glue-board fly lights should be considered.

  • Clean all sinks and drains with a toilet brush and was out regularly
  • Seal all foods in airtight containers or cool rooms. Rotten food should be removed from the store asap.
  • Clean around all skirtings, pipes and production equipment, removing all gunk build-ups.
  • Wipe sinks down and keep them dry
  • Empty and Wash all bins regularly
  • Donot leave buckets or cups of water out.
  • Wash out mops regularly and keep them dry

Spiders
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) efforts, including prevention, sanitation, and exclusion, that reduce insects will also help to reduce spiders both directly and indirectly—by reducing the “food” on which they prey.

Spiders tend to spin their webs in quiet, secluded areas. To discourage such nesting in and around your home:

  • Keep firewood and logs away from the home.
  • Clean up leaves and other organic debris from around the yard.
  • Trim back any trees and shrubs that contact the home.
  • Caulk or otherwise seal cracks and gaps in the home’s structure.
  • Reduce or eliminate piles of papers, boxes, bags, and other clutter to reduce potential harborage areas.

Remember:
The infestation of pests will forever be ongoing due to the nature of pests breeding and behavioural cycles. Pests will be trying to enter your store every minute of every day, whether it’s in boxes from deliveries, in the shopping bags of customers, the council garbage trucks or the unhygenic practices of your neighbours.
