The dangers of pests in restaurants
As frustrating as it is, pests simply can’t resist the ideal environment restaurants offer them. Once they’ve infested a restaurant, it can be hard to get rid of them.
Besides ruining the reputation of a dining establishment, pests bring along many other problems:
- Pests can possibly carry diseases such as typhoid, cholera, E. coli, and salmonella.
- They can contaminate food with droppings, urine, and filth.
