As a restaurant owner in Brisbane, you will be familiar with the requirements of ensuring the food preparation, disposal and dining areas are completely pest free as part of your licensing.
With many restaurants, cafes and food spots now reopening following the Covid 19 lockdown, it’s not uncommon for owners to discover pests on the premises.
Cockroaches are well known for infesting food preparation areas and garbage storage around these establishments. The presence of cockroaches in your restaurant can have a detrimental effect on your reputation and the health risks associated with cockroach infestations.
Council authorities can impose fines for tens of thousands of dollars far greater than the cost of a regular pest service and the restaurant could be forced to close until the pests are removed.
Cockroach Control for Restaurants in Brisbane can protect your business and ensure a clean and healthy space.
HACCP Pest Control
As mentioned, HACCP pest control is part of your licensing and operational compliance requirements.
This service is an organised process that assesses and manages food safety threats in the form of pests. We conduct a thorough inspection of the establishment to identify any pest issues and other harmful items that may be present such as cleaning chemicals.
We then follow a process of treating pests and advising on clean up of other items. As part of this process, we will produce reporting on the work done and recommendations and control measures moving forward.
You will have access to the reporting system to manage the restaurant control and provide food inspectors with written reports as required by them.
Why you should control cockroaches
In addition to the above-mentioned reasons, cockroach control is one of the most important forms of pest control we do.
These pests are well known for contaminating stored foods and transmitting harmful diseases. They can also cause allergic reactions, particularly for people who suffer from asthma. They also soil homes and businesses with waste and odour.
Top Tips for reducing cockroaches
As an ongoing measure outside HACCP pest control, there are things you can do regularly to reduce the chance of cockroaches accessing your business. These include:
- Regularly cleaning kitchen and dining areas.
- Cleaning all bench tops and floors.
- Remove garbage waste to an outside closed bin.
- Repair any cracks or crevices around windows and doors to block entry by these pests.
