The success of a restaurant sits on a few different important factors; the food must be great, the atmosphere must be welcoming and enjoyable, the service must be outstanding and the restaurant itself must be absolutely clean. One of the most harmful events that can occur to a restaurant is having a rodent, cockroach or other type of nuisance pest run across the floor during dinner service. Keeping a restaurant pest free can be a difficult task to accomplish. A restaurant provides everything that a rodent or insect need to survive. Food, shelter and water are all necessities for their existence, so keeping them away can become more difficult than not.
