Your customers’ dining experience depends on a clean, pest-free* environment. You work hard to provide the best food and ambiance possible. We work hard to ensure that pests don’t enter your space and disrupt your hospitality.

At Gregory Pest Solutions, we have extensive experience in restaurant pest control and we’ve developed the premier integrated pest management (IPM) program in the industry. Gregory uses the latest techniques, tools, and materials developed specifically for restaurants. We emphasize long-term solutions rather than the short-term quick fix. Our pest control services for restaurants combine a variety of pest management practices, including sanitation, mechanical, and cultural controls.

Common Restaurant Pests

Restaurants pose unique challenges because they offer everything a pest wants–food, water and shelter. Here are some of the most common culprits we eliminate through our commercial restaurant pest control programs along with the risks they bring with them and signs of infestation:

  • Rodents (Rats and Mice): Mice and rats are notorious for their ability to startle customers and employees alike. They chew through almost anything and are carriers of various diseases such as salmonella and hantavirus. Rodents can destroy property and contaminate food. Signs of rodent infestation include droppings, gnaw marks, and rustling, squeaking or scratching noises in walls, especially at night.
  • Cockroaches: These hardy urban invaders are drawn to warm, moist areas like kitchens and storage spaces. They can spread bacteria and pathogens by crawling over food surfaces and utensils. A single cockroach scuttling across your dining area during prime time can blemish your reputation and result in negative online reviews. Be on the lookout for skin sheds and strange, musty odors.
  • Flies: Buzzing swarms can multiply quickly and are attracted to food waste and other decaying organic matter. They can spread diseases like E. coli and salmonella as they move from trash areas to food preparation surfaces. They can distract kitchen workers or diners and become an ongoing nuisance.
  • Ants: Ants can enter through the tiniest cracks and are particularly attracted to sweets, oils, and fats. Once they establish a trail to a food source, they can bring hundreds of others with them in a short period. Sealing entries, keeping areas free of food debris and addressing moisture issues are key in preventing ant infestations.

Types of Food Businesses We Service

Four and six-legged pests threaten any business that serves food, not just traditional sit-down restaurants. To manage pest infestation for all types of food service businesses, we work with:

  • Restaurants: We eliminate pest infestations that can damage food stocks, contaminate kitchen areas, and ruin the dining experience for guests. 
  • Cafés and Coffee Shops: The presence of food and the constant flow of customers can attract pests like ants, flies, and rodents. We prevent pest disruptions and help you maintain food safety protocols.
  • Fast Food Outlets: A high turnover of food and waste quickly attracts pests if not properly managed. Regular cleaning and pest control measures are essential to operate successfully and pass pest inspections.
  • Catering Services: Caterers transport food and operate in various environments. This mobility can expose them to different pest pressures, making regular inspections and preventive treatments vital.
  • Bakeries: The sweet aromas of fresh baked goods are strong lures that attract pests. Effective pest control ensures that your products remain uncontaminated from production to point of sale.
