Pest Control for Restaurants & Food Service Facilities
Prevent unwanted food-samplers by utilizing the pest control services from Clegg’s Pest Control at your restaurant or food service facility.

Preventative Measures for Pests in the Restaurant Industry
While a pest control professional is the best person to ultimately keep pests at bay, there are a handful of preventative measures that you, the restaurant manager or business owner, can be taking to keep the pests at bay. Here are some of the most important things you should be doing at your restaurant space to ensure that pests don’t get a foothold.
- Keep an eye out for cracks and holes in places that lead to the exterior
- Dispose of garbage at the end of each work day to ensure no lingering flies or gnats
- Routinely check and clean all sinks and drains for leftover food
- Locate and seal off any entries where rodents could find their way in
- Clean up food remnants off dishes promptly
- Immediately clean any spills that occur in the restaurant
- Maintain a clean and dry floor
- Keep all doors and windows properly sealed and closed when not in use
- Keep exterior dumpsters away from the building
- Trim any foliage that is within five feet of the building
- Thoroughly clean all cooking appliances at the end of each day
These are all routine practices that should be done in your restaurant if you want to keep pests away. Doing these things consistently will greatly benefit your business. Hiring a professional pest control technician will help ensure that your restaurant stays pest free. Our professionals at Cleggs can help assess your space and identify problems and work out a solution. Give us a call today, we would love to serve you!
One Restaurant, One Team
All of these proactive and preventative measures are necessary to keep dirty pests away, but there is also a very important component that hasn’t been discussed; your staff! Communicating these practices to your staff and entire restaurant team is imperative to keeping pests away. Creating a clean environment that does not breed pests is an ongoing process and requires everyone to be on board. Routine trainings and check-ins with your staff would be prudent to ensuring consistent practices across the board.
