3 Pest Prevention Tips for Restaurants

Image
As a restaurant owner, the last thing you want is for a patron to see a bug skittering through your shop. Not only will they hit the floor running, but they'll likely spread the word... and in a close-knit community like ours, bad news travels fast! Before you know it, you're getting visits from a health inspector and closing the doors. Don't let that be the future for your business. Instead, rely on the best pest control company at the Lake of the Ozarks to keep your establishment pest free!


Keep Things Clean
Restaurants can minimize pest invasions by practicing good cleaning habits, and keeping food spillage to a minimum. Unlike at your home, restaurants serve large quantities of food for long periods of time. Customers or servers may accidently drop food on the floor. Large industrial kitchens also have plenty of areas where grease and food can get trapped. Cleaning serving areas frequently and scouring all areas where food is prepared can minimize any pest issues.

5 Common Misconceptions About Pest Control

Image
No matter what the season is, bugs are around us all the time, 24/7. Of course, they are a lot more noticeable and prominent in the warmer months, but they are still around during the winter. When it comes to bugs and pest control, Best Pest Control knows that there are a few misconceptions about pest control treatments and the best way to treat an infestation. The best pest control company at the Lake of the Ozarks wants to clear the air on these five common pest control misconceptions. Check them out below!

So just because you are clean, it doesn't mean you can't have a pest problem.

Which Pests Are Seeking Shelter In Your Home This Winter?

Although we see the majority of pest related problems during the summer, that doesn't mean they are completely gone in the winter. In fact, the cold weather actually makes pests more likely to seek warmth and shelter in your home. So, which pests should we be aware of this winter? Best Pest Control shares with you the most common pests we see throughout the winter months.


Rodents
During the winter, rodents, such as rats and mice, enter homes more often in search of shelter and warmth. They will find their way in by squeezing through holes the size of a quarter or climbing up drain pipes. Not only are they causing damage to your home by gnawing on furnishings and building materials, they also pose a health risk to your family. Exposure to their urine and droppings can transmit serious diseases such as salmonella, hantavirus and infection.

Cockroaches
If you were hoping that cockroaches die in the winter, you may not be pleased to find out the truth. Not only do they survive the fre…
