The Biggest Problems in Pest Control for Restaurants

Over the past two and a half years, most restaurant owners
have realized just how tough it can be to run a restaurant. One thing that’s
always been likely to create problems for business owners, though, is a pest
infestation. If you’re looking to ensure your diners are happy meal after meal,
better pest control for restaurants is an absolute must.

Understanding Common Restaurant Pests

Knowing what you might want to prevent is key to restaurant
pest prevention. Here are the three biggest problems for most restaurant
owners.

Mice and Rats are some of the biggest pests in the
restaurant game. Most people have an irrevocable hatred for these rodents,
which can grow up to 8 inches long. They’re a common spreader of diseases like
E. Coli, Salmonella, and Listeria, so they’re definitely not something you
want around your food preparation areas.

Cockroaches are nature’s biggest threat to your food
stores, and they can be difficult to remove. Arizona cockroaches are
little bugs are both nimble and flighty, and typically frequent food storage
and kitchen areas in restaurants. They can easily contaminate your meals with
feces, dropped shells, and even their eggs, making them as dangerous as they are
gross.

Flies are always attracted to food sources no matter
where they are, and that’s as true in a restaurant setting as it is anywhere
else. They contaminate everything they touch, both food and surfaces- and can
carry so many different diseases that it’s difficult to keep track of them all.
These pests aren’t something you want near your patrons- so it’s best to keep
them out of your restaurant.

pest control for restaurants

It’s simpler and easier than you think to keep your dining
and kitchen areas free from pests. Make sure to clean all of your drains often,
and keep your storage areas sealed tightly. Even the containers you’re keeping
the food in need to be tightly closed to ensure that no pests get inside.

Not only are these steps a must, though, but so is knowing
who to call when you have a problem. If keeping pest-free dining on the menu is
your goal, the thing to do is call the best pest control service –
ScorpionTech even before you experience a problem. We can help you spot
potential trouble spots and deal with pests when they become a problem.

Arizona Scorpion Season Is Coming Are You Ready?

According to the Mayo Clinic, the only scorpion species in the entire United States with venom strong enough to cause severe symptoms in people likely lives in your basement throughout the year in Arizona. It’s the Arizona Bark Scorpion, and while it’s not the only scorpion you might find on your property this year, it is one of the scariest. 

Every year, Phoenix scorpion pest control experts receive thousands of calls about scorpions and for good reason. The last thing you want is to deal with the potentially severe effects of a scorpion sting, but is there really anything you can do to prevent the problem? Absolutely. 

Know Your Scorpions

The Arizona Bark Scorpion isn’t the only scorpion you might see if you live in Arizona. There are actually a number of different types of scorpions that live in the area because the state’s climate helps them thrive. While all scorpions have venom in their stingers, it’s not always harmful to humans. Instead, it’s meant for prey. 

There are other types of scorpions in Arizona. 

  • The Stripetail Scorpion is the single most common. It’s yellow and has dark stripes across its back. It’s usually less than three inches in length, but the females can grow a bit bigger than that. You might find these in your basement, garage, or in an outbuilding as in the wild, they live under the cool shade of rocks, so it’s easy to mistake your space for theirs. 
  • The Arizona Giant Hairy Scorpion is another type of scorpion you might see on your property. It’s actually the largest scorpion in the United States, growing up to six inches in length. They get their name from the tiny brown hairs that cover their entire body. They are also yellow, but they usually have a fairly dark back. They can be a bit aggressive too, but a sting from one isn’t particularly dangerous. You might notice a localized reaction on your skin. 
  • You could also see the Yellow Ground Scorpion. It’s most often misidentified as the Arizona Bark Scorpion. With slender legs and a yellow color, it’s easy to see why, but one quick look at the tail may help you tell the two apart. The first two segments of it’s tail are wide, rather than long. 

The confusion around so many different types of scorpions is due to one thing – the fear of the Arizona Bark Scorpion. The fear is fairly warranted too, given that it has deadly venom. With long, slender legs and a long tail, you’ll find them in a number of different colors including grey, yellow, and light orange. If you live at a higher elevation, you may also find Arizona Bark Scorpions with stripes. These scorpions aren’t lonely creatures, either. Instead, they hang out in groups. At two to three inches long, they’re fairly easy to spot, and one sting truly is dangerous. You could experience muscle spasms, tremors, blurred vision, and even seizures after a sting. 

Each night, the Arizona Bark Scorpion hunts for its favorite foods – smaller insects. Then they use the venom in their stingers to disable that food. This is when you’re most likely to encounter the scorpion, on a hunt, and if one thinks you’re getting in the way of that hunt, you will get stung. During the day, the Bark Scorpion will retreat and hide like inside the nooks and crannies in your home, basement, or garage. If you disturb that hiding place, they could wake up. They don’t actually seek people out. Instead, they work to protect themselves when discovered by a person or when they think they might not catch their prey. 

Arizona Bark Scorpions are unique in that they love trees. They climb up almost anything when they’re on their hunt, so you could see them along your baseboards, on your ceiling, or virtually anywhere. They can squeeze themselves into gaps that are less than the thickness of your debit card. 

You’re most likely to spot Bark Scorpions in the summer, typically after the monsoon rains. If you have a problem, you’re going to see it during July and August, and while you might spot them other times of the year, they’re typically hibernating during the fall and winter months. 

Understand How Scorpions Get In

Understanding the creatures is one thing, but if you’re like most people, you only want to know one thing – how to keep them out. Fortunately, there are ways to make your space a little less habitable for them. First, make sure that you have weather stripping around your doors, windows, and any pet doors on your home. Make sure you replace it on a regular basis, and it’s not worn. If you can see daylight, a Bark Scorpion can get in. You’ll also want to check the openings around pipes or other lines coming into your home. If they’re not properly sealed, a Bark Scorpion can easily squeeze its way in. 

Clutter creates hiding places for these scorpions, so you’ll want to do what you can inside and out to keep the clutter to a minimum. If your home is cluttered, you’ll find scorpion hiding places abound. Outside, boxes, tarps, kid’s toy spaces, and more provide great scorpion hiding places. If they’re in your yard, they’re likely to find a way to get into your home. 

Have potted plants inside or out? Keep them off the ground and work to avoid overwatering them. You’ll attract other pests and that could attract the Bark Scorpion to prey on those other pests. 

Wood piles can also serve as an attraction for Bark Scorpions. They provide multiple hiding places for them, and they offer lots of opportunities to capture prey. If you have a woodpile, be sure to keep it as far away from your home as possible. It can also help to elevate it off the ground to create fewer hiding places. 

Keeping your trees trimmed can help to eliminate scorpion problems as well. Eliminating the leave litter and dead or dying branches is a great way to keep the population to a minimum. This is especially true for palm trees. This type of tree offers lots of shade, and when the leaves fall to the ground, scorpions can take refuge under them. That makes grooming your palm trees an absolute must. Trim it to eliminate the dead and dying branches. You’ll want to keep leaf litter out from under the tree too. 

Finally, don’t give these scorpions a water source. Excessive water and leaks can attract them to your property, so if you have a leaky sprinkler system, areas of standing water on your property, or a continually leaking pipe near or inside your home, have it fixed immediately. 

Get Help

If you do have a problem with the Arizona Bark Scorpion or any other scorpions on your property, don’t try to handle it yourself. Many people resort to pesticides immediately. Spraying pesticides that you got off the shelf at your local big-box store isn’t likely to kill them. Instead, it’s only going to spread pesticides across an area that don’t get any real results. Instead, get professional help. At ScorpionTech, we offer unique scorpion pest control ways to eradicate infestations and keep them from coming back. Our trained and certified technicians do a number of things to keep them out. 

Once you call us, we’ll carefully inspect the outside of your home for spaces that are helping make your place an open invitation for Arizona Bark scorpions.

The Importance of Remaining Vigilant

Arizona Bark Scorpion stings are rarely fatal. In fact, there have been only two fatalities over the course of the last sixty years in Arizona. The problem, though, is that the population of Phoenix is booming, and as more people build beautiful houses in the area, more scorpions lose their standard hunting grounds and begin looking for new options (like your home). Because the risk is there for a dangerous, painful sting, your single best bet is to give us a call the moment you think you have a scorpion problem.

If you do experience a painful, concerning sting, seek medical help, then give us a call to help prevent any future scorpion pest control problems with these creatures. 

ScorpionTech Is Your Mesa Pest Control Partner

Across the United States, there is a greater demand for pest control services than ever before. Nowhere is that more true than it is in the state of Arizona. Phoenix has been one of the hottest real estate markets in the entire country for a few years now, and with new homes and new neighborhoods popping up in spaces previously only inhabited by pests, the demand for pest control helps in the area will only continue to grow. 

ScorpionTech is proud to serve the residents of the Phoenix area with comprehensive pest control services for homes and businesses alike. What makes ScorpionTech different? We’re here for you every time you call. 

The Importance of Better Pest Control Mesa

Pests of many types can cause serious issues for your home or business. Whether it’s termites creating physical problems or cockroach droppings creating health issues, the last thing you want is a pest control problem. Many, though, don’t look to companies like ScorpionTech for help. Instead, they hit the DIY aisle of a local big box store for solutions to the problem. The simple truth, though, is that your DIY efforts are only going to make the situation worse. 

At ScorpionTech, we have the training and expertise to handle all different kinds of pests. We know how to not only eliminate them and prevent future infestations but also how to identify the problem at hand. More than that, though, we have access to cutting-edge technologies that mean control happens at a far faster rate. 

DIY sprays, traps, and pest control bombs often don’t reach the source of the problem. Eliminating an infestation in your house isn’t about getting rid of the pests that you can see. Instead, it’s about getting rid of the pests that you can’t see. For example, if you have a rodent problem, they’re likely nesting deep inside your walls or even in your attic. Bait and traps will only catch a few of them. You’re not going to manage to get to the nest. The same is true for cockroaches. Perhaps you set off a bug bomb in your office to eliminate cockroach problems. You may have just killed all of the adult cockroaches, but what about the eggs they left behind? Not only are you going to continue to have trouble with the pest itself, but you’ve just used a very potent poison in your office, and sensitive employees may have all kinds of resulting problems. 

The real issue, though, is that you may not be treating the underlying problem with those DIY methods. Any type of pest is invading your home or office for a reason. They’re looking for food, moisture, or something else. They’ve invaded your space because they’re meeting a basic need by doing so. An off-the-shelf solution isn’t going to treat the underlying problem, only the one you can see. You may not even know what that underlying problem is. At ScorpoinTech, we’ll not only help you deal with the issue itself but also the direct cause of the issue. We work to identify problems, like unsealed pipes that come into your home, areas of standing water around your property, or even dampness issues that are attracting pests in the first place, then we work to help you resolve those issues so you don’t have future pest control issues in your home or business.

From the space behind your baseboards to deep inside the recesses of your storage cabinets, they’ll make a home throughout yours! At ScorpionTech, we’ll locate the cockroach problem, eliminate it, and prevent it from coming back in the future.

What Is Integrated Pest Management?

Integrated pest management (IPM) service is one of the most eco-friendly pest control methods available today.

How Do We Use IPM?

At ScorpionTech, we use Integrated Pest Management plans to their fullest advantage. There are four simple steps to every Integrated Pest Management program:

Set Your Pest Goals

Before beginning any pest control services, ScorpionTech ensures that we know exactly what we’re striving for. Seeing one mouse doesn’t mean there’s an infestation; instead, we take the time to watch for any infestations that may be growing, and any that are beginning to die off on their own. When we decide what is a present threat to your home, we spring into action.

Monitor and Identify Infestations

Instead of just looking for every single type of pest at once, we take some time to figure out exactly what kind of pest is giving you trouble, and treat your property for that pest. Insecticide that works for ants doesn’t necessarily get rid of termites, as well, so it’s better for your house and your family if you wait to figure out what’s causing your troubles.

Prevent New Pests

Once you’re ready to get rid of the pests in your home, you need to ensure that no more are coming back. Whether this is weatherproofing your home for winter or setting a few small traps across your lawn, ScorpionTech understands that you need a cost-effective way to prevent new infestations in your property, and strives for the best measures to achieve that.

Control The Pests You’ve Already Got

Once everything is ready to go, it’s time to get rid of the pests that you’ve got. Sometimes, this means that you’ve gone past the preventative measures, and other times, it just means that you’ve found a present and clear infestation. We always use environmentally safe and healthy chemicals as our first line of defense and want to ensure that your family is always safe during our removal process.

Why You Should Use Integrated Pest Management with ScorpionTech

Integrated pest management is the best way to go for both you and the environment. Instead of haphazardly plastering chemicals and toxins across every surface, integrated pest management services use preventative measures and careful control measures to ensure that you, your pets, and your property is safe from any long-term harm that can be caused by both pests and their removal. When you use ScorpionTech for your pest control needs, you know that you and the environment are in good hands!

  • What parts should I stock?

Here are some additional tips to think about for your ​Pest & Landscape Equipment:

  • Standardize your equipment to reduce the number of different parts needed
  • Assign equipment to one staff member
  • Observe, Inspect and Ride-Along
  • Encourage reporting of issues
  • Train and retrain your techs
