A pest infestation is one of the biggest risks a food service business faces. Pests can contaminate a restaurant’s food supply, spread disease to customers and staff, damage equipment and facilities, and expose the business to substantial regulatory liability. Extensive pest infestations have even resulted in local or state officials ordering restaurants closed.
Our inspectors will thoroughly examine your property to identify the types of pests causing problems for you, and we will work with you to determine the best way to remove the pests and monitor to make sure they stay away. We use a combination of pesticide treatments, physical removal of nests and larvae, and obstruction of cracks and crevasses where pests can gain access to food preparation and storage areas, to help our customers deal with pests like:
- Palmetto bugs and cockroaches
- Rats and mice
- Raccoons and other large pests
Flies and food service do not mix. Consumers have repeatedly indicated that they associate the sight of flies with a lack of cleanliness and, possibly more importantly for a restaurant, a loss of interest in eating. Our specialists can identify likely breeding grounds for flies, such as food storage, food preparation, and garbage disposal areas, and recommend sanitation methods to keep those areas as clear as possible.
We can treat suspected breeding areas with a concentrated microbial solution that kills fly larvae and reduces the organic material that allows fly populations to grow and multiply. We recommend Mantis devices from PestWest Electronics to deal with adult flies. These devices use ultraviolet lights to lure flies inside, where they become trapped on adhesive pads. Our technicians can identify the specific type of flies troubling your business, which allows us to improve your overall pest management plan.
If your restaurant includes outdoor lawns or green areas, we can help you keep them looking healthy and vibrant throughout the year. Our lawn care specialists can help you develop a plan to care for grass, shrubs, and bushes through Orlando’s hot, humid summer months and its relatively colder, drier winters. We can provide a range of services including ongoing care and regular fertilizer treatments.
Restaurants and food service businesses need a reliable plumbing system. A blocked drain line at a time when, for example, dishes need to be washed can be about as harmful to a restaurant as the sight of various pests. We offer a Drain Line Management Program that takes steps to keep your drains and drainage lines free of blockages.
ABC can bring your business into compliance with following inspections/standards: AIB, SQF, Silliker, NSF, BRC and ISO 22000.
We make certain that our technicians receive a high level of training in the food service industry’s pest control needs, with particular emphasis of the types of pests and other problems commonly found in Orlando and central Florida. We work closely with our customers and involve them in every step of our services. Our customers receive copies of the manufacturer's label and Material Data Safety (MDS) sheet for every product we use on their premises.
