WESTWOOD, NEW JERSEY – 20 Jun, 2017 – You are cooking in the kitchen of your upscale restaurant, preparing food for the hundreds of guests sitting at your table. As you are in the middle of preparing food, you see a small, black dot making its way across the counter.
Ants are the last thing you want to see at your restaurant. Not only are they an annoying pest to see, but some types of ants can also spread diseases like salmonella. If you see any of these tiny, black bugs anywhere in your restaurant, here are some tips for getting them out and then keeping them out.
1. Know what you are fighting against.
There are hundreds of species of ants that are around, so it is important to know what type of ant you are encountering. This factor could determine how you go about some of your extermination techniques.
2. Follow their patterns.
Although this is hard to do in a busy restaurant, try to watch where the ants are going. By following the ants, you can figure out where the colony is, and that can help you get rid of the whole problem.
3. Learn how big the problem is.
No matter how many ants you see, there are always more hiding. It may seem like there are only one or two, but those one or two could turn into hundreds and thousands. Calling in a pest control professional like UltraPro Pest Protection can help you find out how big the colony is and the best way to target them.
4. Use caution with chemicals.
Since you are working with food, it is very important that you watch what you are using to get rid of the ants. Pesticides and other chemicals can get into the food and cause major health issues with your patrons. It is best to make sure the professionals handle the situation and take the appropriate measures to get rid of the problem.
5. Keep areas clean.
Ants are attracted to places where they can find food laying around. Make sure to clean your kitchen and keep it spotless at the end of the day so that the ants don’t have a source of food. This will also help keep any other pests out of your restaurant, too.
6. Seal up cracks and crevices.
It may seem like a small crack in the wall, but that small crack could have caused the problem. Make sure to seal up any cracks in the foundation of the building, walls and windows so that no ants, or any other pests, find their way into your restaurant.
There is only one group on this planet you should be serving, and that is humans. With these tips, you will be able to get the ants out and keep them and any other pests out of your restaurant for good.
