German Cockroach Control in Restaurants

You know them and you hate them. One of the most common pests to infest restaurants is the German cockroach. They are attracted to fresh food, as well as garbage scraps, which are both readily available in a restaurant setting. They can also be introduced into your restaurant in boxes and bags or come in with laundered uniforms for your staff.

No matter how they enter your restaurant, even if your kitchen is spotless, once they arrive, they can quickly cause a major infestation issue. These bugs thrive in warm and moist environments, so your sinks, stoves, and other appliances are all great places for them to hide.

The main message here is to take care of the problem as soon as you spot an issue. A cockroach here and there will quickly turn into a costly problem to manage. Consider some of the major issues:

  • Spread of bacteria and germs
  • Contamination of your food product
  • Legal issues for the establishment
  • Failed inspections

Why take the risk? Partner with your local, reliable pest management company. General Pest Control has over 75 years of experience in the industry, so we understand the anxiety, frustration, and stress that these issues present. When you work with us, you’ll benefit from a team of trained, dedicated professionals who are ready to help protect your food establishment with you.

How to Avoid a German Cockroach Infestation

No matter how clean the dining room or your kitchen may be, German cockroaches could still find a way in. To prevent entry, there are few things that you can do, which include:

  • Sealing gaps or cracks on the exterior with a caulking gun
  • Sealing cracks around window and door frames
  • Checking around piping and ventilation for cracks
  • Having a written pest management plan

When you spot an issue, you need a fast solution because cockroaches are difficult to get rid of. We start with a thorough inspection of your facility, inside and out, and will speak with you about your food processes. We work with you to determine the best method to get rid of the infestation for good.

Cockroach Infestation Treatment Options Available

There are several options to choose from when dealing with a German cockroach infestation. No two establishments will be treated exactly the same. The key, though, is focused and persistent treatment. One of our technicians will discuss available treatments, which include:

  • Sprays
  • Baits
  • Dusts
  • Traps

Your specific location might require multiple treatment types to eliminate the infestation entirely. Sometimes, a combination of products is the best treatment.

Keep in mind that the timing of your service also needs to be taken into account. Your establishment cannot be in operation during pest control services. We work with you to schedule service at times that are convenient for you with the least amount of impact on your business.
