When you run a restaurant, one of the worst things that can happen is having a pest problem. While cockroaches scurrying around dining areas and kitchens is bad enough, imagine if these pests found their way into customers’ food orders. That’s what happened recently in a couple of incidents in Singapore.
Cockroaches to Go
A coffee shop and a restaurant in Singapore gave customers unpleasant additions to their orders. One customer noticed a cockroach in his soup, while others found cockroaches in their iced mocha drinks.
Singapore has strict food hygiene guidelines, which puts these places at risk of losing their license to operate. Restaurants and other places that serve food and drinks get demerit points for failing to meet guidelines. These places could also lose a lot of business due to these pests.
How can you make sure that cockroaches stay out of the food and drinks your restaurant serves? Keeping food preparation areas, floors and dining areas as clean as possible can discourage these pests from staying around. Emptying trash cans inside your restaurant each day and keeping garbage in secure, tightly sealed containers outside can also prevent cockroach problems.
If they can’t find easy food sources, they’ll go elsewhere for them. Having Carlsbad pest control services inspect and treat your restaurant for cockroaches can also help keep these pests away.
