Food Pests Every Restaurant Owner Needs To Be Aware Of


Every restaurant owner needs to be aware of food pests. These pests can cause significant damage to restaurants, both in terms of monetary losses and lost customers. Here are some tips to keep your restaurant pest free:

  • Know where and when food pests are likely to appear. Once you have a good understanding of the areas where these pests might cross your path, you can start taking steps to prevent them from attacking your establishment.
  • Put in place a pest control program that is effective. With a well-executed pest control program, you’ll be able to avoid issues with food pests and protect yourself from any negative consequences.
  • Use effective repellents and baits.
  • Keep tools and supplies locked up when not in use. You will be able to prevent food pests from entering your establishment this way.
  • Treat for insect growth regulators (IGR) or insect growth inhibitors (IGI). These are molecules that help to stop the spread of pests, even if they’re already in your establishment.
  • 4. Keep your facility free of any food-contact surfaces. This ensures that pests can’t get to the food products, and that you don’t need to use pesticides on the surface.
  • Use commercial insecticides when possible.



If a customer sees a cockroach at your restaurant, you can be sure that they will never come back again! The creepy appearance of cockroaches is unpleasant enough. However, cockroaches are not just ugly-looking, they are vectors for bacteria and can trigger allergy symptoms and allergens in some people. If you don’t react quickly and order a pest control service, cockroaches can infest incredibly fast. 

In case cockroaches do appear at your restaurant, you must know that it is surely not your fault. These pests can sneak into the property through shipments and deliveries. At ACME Pest Control, you will get the most efficient cockroach exterminator service for a great price.



Restaurant owners across the world have troubles with mice and rats. Apart from being unsettling for any guest or employee to see, rodents can also cause some damage to your restaurant. Since mice and rats always look for something to chew, they will harm the packaging, structures, equipment and other parts of your restaurants. In addition, they will leave unsanitary droppings and turn your restaurant to an unsafe environment as rodents can carry many diseases. Eventually, those diseases can affect your guests, employees, and you! 

We highly recommend a mice prevention service that will stop rodents from invading your restaurant on time.  



Eating in your restaurant can become extremely frustrating for guests that need to fight for their food against flies! These unsanitary pests will not stop annoying your guests and if you don’t put these pests under control, you will start losing your customers!
