Food Waste Areas
Rats and mice are both attracted by bins full of food waste, or scraps of leftover meals. These can both be unwanted by-products of the takeaway industry, so good hygiene and waste procedures are essential.
If you do have a rodent control problem which requires expert treatment, we will survey the area to find any nests and use anti-coagulant baits to eradicate them. We will make several visits to make sure any rats or mice do not return, and offer advice on how to make your premises rodent-proof.
Tackling Kitchen Pests
Many different types of pest can infest food preparation areas, so a clean regime is essential. Cockroaches are attracted by the warm, dark, damp conditions of kitchens, and can carry diseases including salmonella, typhoid and gastroenteritis. As cockroaches are nocturnal, we can visit your premises at night. We will then use insecticide spray, baits and traps to eradicate them.
Restaurants and takeaways serving sweet food need to be on their guard against ants, which are particularly attracted to any items containing sugar or jam. We lay down environmentally-friendly insecticides or baits to make sure all the ants in the colony are destroyed.
Wasps and flies can be a problem for restaurants, principally in summer, and particularly those with outdoor seating areas. In extreme cases, a wasp sting can cause a cardiac arrest if the victim goes into anaphylactic shock, while a fly can pass on many different types of diseases, and cause food poisoning.
Essex and Suffolk Pest Solutions supply a range of fly killer units for businesses, plus screens on windows and doors. To help alleviate wasp problems, we can use wasp traps around areas where customers are sitting outside. If there is a wasp nest on your premises or nearby, we can destroy it using insecticidal sprays or dusts.
Stored Product Insects
All restaurants and takeaways usually need to store food on their premises. However, many moths, weevils and beetles, known as stored product insects, can be brought in with deliveries. They then set up home in cupboards and shelves, and their eggs and larvae can contaminate foodstuffs, including wheat, corn, barley, rice and nuts. We are expert in identifying and eradicating all types of SPIs, and our work will be tailored to fit your particular problem.
Essex and Suffolk Pest Solutions are specialists in speedy, efficient pest control. We work in takeaways and restaurants across the counties, including premises in Ipswich, Felixstowe, Stowmarket, Woodbridge, Colchester and Clacton.
