Pest Control Methods in the Foodservice Industry
We know meeting state and federal regulations are important to you — Catseye’s year-round foodservice and restaurant pest control services and prevention will ensure you’re always up to code.
Crawling Insect Control:
Pests like ants, beetles and cockroaches can damage and contaminate your food products. We use discrete monitors to gauge pest activity, then apply baits and residual insecticides to eliminate any pest problem we detect.
Flying Insect Control:
Fly lights and attractants are used to monitor and control the activity of flying pests. We also use baits and residual insecticides to get rid of pests like fruit flies, drain flies and bees. In addition, drains are cleaned and treated so that flies are less likely to reproduce.
Mice & Rodent Control:
We use a combination of safe and humane rodent bait stations and mechanical rodent monitoring devices to remove these critters.
At Catseye, we believe in more than just getting rid of your pests. We want to go above and beyond for every service. This is why we vaccuum, disinfect and otherwise return the area to the way it was before pests invaded.
Minor Repair and Seal Ups:
Catseye technicians are always keeping an eye out for the ways pests are getting into your building. If we find small openings, like the hole where a pipe enters the building or a crack in the foundation, we will seal it to keep pests out. We also seal up areas, like behind backsplashes, where pests will hide.
Permanent Pest Exclusion:
Our foodservice and restaurant pest exterminator services are just part of our offerings. Sometimes it’s more than just a couple small openings that are letting pests sneak inside your restaurant or foodservice facility. Our Cat-Guard Exclusion Systems are all-natural, permanent solutions to keeping the pests out. Are bigger pests causing problems on your property?

How To Prevent Rodents in your Restaurant
Mice and rats are some of the most frustrating pests for restaurant owners and others in the foodservice industry. Rodents damage food products when they chew through the packaging and gnaw on the food. Food products can also become contaminated from droppings and urine. Mice and rats carry dozens of pathogens that can cause disease in people. Attracted by scraps of food, mice can get inside your building through openings as small as a dime, while rats need an opening at least the size of a quarter. Common signs of a rodent infestation include damage and gnaw marks on food products, small pellet-shaped droppings and the strong smell of urine. We know you want to keep rodents out of your restaurant or foodservice facility — follow these prevention tips so that you don’t have any four-legged freeriders eating your food:
- Install heavy-duty window screens, weather stripping and doorsweeps
- Keep entry doors and loading dock doors closed as much as possible
- Position dumpsters or garbage cans away from the building and clean regularly
- Clean crumbs and spilled food off counters and floors
- Declutter and organize items in storage areas to reduce appealing nesting sites for rodents and so you that you can spot a problem more quickly
Pest Control Procedures in the Foodservice Industry
Foodservice and restaurant businesses must achieve a variety of compliance standards to meet county, state and federal health codes. Inspections by your local health department typically happen every 2 to 5 years depending on how high-risk your business is and where you are located. Health department officials definitely keep an eye out for rodent and other pest problems that could pose health hazards for restaurant patrons. Catseye is here to make sure that you have the right foodservice and restaurant pest control procedures in place to not only pass your inspections, but to make sure your business always meets health codes.
