Pest control for bars and restaurants

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, cause health department closures, and most concerning, put the public's health at risk by spreading harmful bacteria in kitchens and public areas.

With Rentokil, pests are not tolerated at any time, under any circumstances, for any reason. Find out how Rentokil can protect your business from pest threats by calling 1-855-633-6260.

Rodent management checklist for bars and restaurants

Protect your bar or restaurant from rats and mice with our useful rodent prevention checklist.

Common pests in bars and restaurants

Restaurant patrons 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. Some of the most frequent pest concerns in this industry are:

Cockroaches - Restaurants offer a plethora of food, shelter and water for these unsanitary pests. If they’re spotted, they can severely taint your restaurant’s reputation and drive away customers. Rentokil offers bait and exclusion solutions to remove the threat of cockroaches from your establishment and keep them from returning.

Flies - Flies in a restaurant annoy guests and signal cleanliness issues that can drive away business.  To reduce the risk of contamination in bars and restaurants, Rentokil created Lumnia. This revolutionary electric insect light trap offers a truly effective solution to monitor and control flying insects, protecting your business and the well-being of your customers and employees.

Rodents - Rodents such as mice and rats can cause serious damage to your bar or restaurant, harming the curb appeal of your public-facing building as well as its reputation. Rentokil's Multi Rodent Trap Connect is an innovative, wireless electronic monitoring system that provides 24/7 remote monitoring and protection for your business.

Birds - A bird issue around your bar or restaurant can severely impact your customer’s experience. Not only are they loud and bothersome, but they also spread a wide variety of diseases and can even become aggressive towards patrons. Rentokil offers highly effective, non-toxic bird repellents including bird spikes, bird netting and electric bird deterrents that remove birds safely and humanely from your property.

Based on a detailed evaluation of your facility, Rentokil 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.

Pest prevention for bars and restaurants

A vital part of Rentokil’s Integrated Pest Management approach for bars and restaurants is providing services and products that save you from the headache and high-cost repairs of a pest infestation. We stay one step ahead of pest problems by setting up traps and monitoring devices in and around your properties. Additionally, our Specialists will advise your team on proper prevention methods to keep pest issues from becoming a full-blown infestation. Simple steps such as removing garbage and making sure bar drains are properly sanitized will discourage pests from invading.

Rentokil Specialists also work to seal up external access points to limit pests’ ability to enter your properties. We also make sure to replace screens, seal up holes and cracks, and clean out drains via bioremediation. All of these steps can minimize the risk of a pest infestation in your business.
