Proactive pest control is important for hotels not only because of their vulnerability to pest threats but also because of the impact they can have on your hotel's reputation.
It is important to recognize that different parts of a hotel face different pest challenges. GOTHAM will develop customized service programs to keep these areas pest-free.
Hotel kitchens, restaurants, and other dining areas need particular protection from mice, rats, flies, and cockroaches – all pests that pose a high risk of spreading disease. Proactive treatment is essential in these areas and will be expected by health inspectors.
If pests are not adequately controlled, they will move from food preparation and storage zones into thedining and other areas,which may upset and disturb your customers.
The biggest pest threats to hotel rooms are bedbugs and other biting insects. Bedbugs are becoming a major issue in hotels in the United States. All hotels are at risk, but especially those where there are large numbers of international travelers or those whose patrons move frequently between hotels.
Prompt action against bedbugs is crucial – early detection and treatment ensure that they do not spread to other parts of the building. In addition to simply treating bedbug problems, GOTHAM Pest Control can help you to train your staff to look for signs of bedbugs to ensure early detection.
Other areas of the hotel, including sports facilities or back-of-house areas, are at a lower risk of infestation but should be included as part of the regular service plan.
GOTHAM Pest Control will also treat and prevent pest problems around the perimeter of your hotel, including wasp nests, bird deterrence, and helping to proof the grounds against other wildlife. Exterior treatment offers you some interior protection as well.
