Keep Out Unwelcome Guests
Proactive pest control is important for hotels not only because of their vulnerability to pest threats, but also because of the impact those pests can have on the reputation of your hotel.
However, this does not mean that the cost of protection is excessive – the important thing is to recognize the risks that different parts of a hotel face & then develop service programs to meet them.
Hotel Accommodation The biggest pest threats to hotels accommodation areas are bed bugs & other biting insects.
Bed bug control is becoming a major issue in hotels in many parts of the world.
All hotels are at risk from bed bugs, but especially those where there are large numbers of international travelers or those that have patrons that move frequently between hotels.
Prompt action against bed bugs is key – early detection & innovative solutions ensure that they do not spread to other parts of the building.
As well as treating & preventing bed bug problems, Frio can help you to train your staff to check for bed bug signs to ensure early detection.
Kitchen & Dining Areas The kitchen, restaurant & other dining areas need particular protection from mice, rats, flies & cockroach problems that pose a high risk of spreading disease.
Proactive treatment is essential in these areas & will be expected by food hygiene inspections.
If pests are not adequately controlled, they will move from food preparation & storage zones into dining & other areas which may cause nuisance & distress to your customers.
Other Interior Areas Other areas of the hotel including sports facilities or back-of-house areas are at lower risk of pest infestations, but should be included as part of the regular servicing plan & inspections.
Exterior Areas Frio will also treat & prevent pest problems in the grounds & gardens of your hotel including bird deterrence & helping to proof against rodents.
