Restaurant pest control in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington DC by Connor's Pest Control

Serving Springfield | Fredericksburg | Sterling | Richmond

No industry’s reputation is more threatened by pest infestations than the food industry. Restaurants, commercial kitchens, and other food service buildings have the highest standards when it comes to pest management, and for good reason. One sight of a rodent or cockroach inside of a restaurant can not only ruin a reputation, but also lead to citations or a complete shutdown of operations.

At Connor’s Termite and Pest Control, we are dedicated to working directly with restaurant owners to control active infestations and prevent future ones through our IPM practices.

Common pests in restaurants and food service industries

Few commercial buildings deal with the pest problems restaurants face. Even in the tidiest of facilities, endless food is distributed and people travel in and out of the restaurant daily, raising the risk of pests making their way inside.

While some types are more common than others, the most frequently found pests in restaurants and commercial kitchens include:

  • Ants
  • Spiders
  • Cockroaches
  • Silverfish
  • Pantry beetles
  • Flies
  • Centipedes
  • And more!

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:

  1. Pests can possibly carry diseases such as typhoid, cholera, E. coli, and salmonella.
  2. They can contaminate food with droppings, urine, and filth.
  3. Rodents can directly carry and thus introduce other pests such as ticks, mites, and flees.
  4. Severe damage can be inflicted upon buildings, wiring, fixtures, and machinery.
  5. Pests can cause damage and messes that are expensive to clean up.
