Kitchens are prone to attracting pests. However, commercial kitchens tend to need even more pest control care than residential kitchens. Working with food, no matter how well the kitchen is cleaned, has the possibility to attract any number of cockroaches, ants, and rodents. Deep cleaning the kitchen on a regular basis will help to reduce the attraction and smell of food, but if there are avenues into the kitchen from outside or from the neighboring restaurant’s kitchen, it is even more challenging to prevent pests invading your kitchen.
Using preventative tactics is the best option for cutting down on the amount of pests entering your kitchen. Cover and seal garbage cans well, eliminate any areas that are wet, like leaky plumbing. Cover drains with small screens so roaches can’t enter. To prevent mice and insects from entering, seal up any entry points, like poorly sealed doors, cracks or crevices.
