Vancouver restaurants must have regular rodent control services conducted by a quality pest control company. If the proper precautions are not taken to prevent rodents, they can quickly become a huge problem. The health of everyone, workers and patrons alike, is at risk with even one mouse or rat present. But as we all know, rats come in packs, so when you see one, it’s likely there are more. Rodents, when recognized by diners, will cause great damage to your restaurant’s reputation, and a visit from the Health Department is likely to happen, with possible closure if the problem isn’t corrected.
Just the sight of a mouse or a rat is enough to make a person squeal, and the thought of them being around the food you are preparing for them makes the scenario even worse. Some of the dangers of mouse and rat infestation at a Vancouver restaurant include:
- Rats and mice can chew and destroy everything and anything. This includes electrical wiring, appliances, and of course foods. They can cause expensive damage.
- Mice and rats stink! They are certain to leave a noticeable and very unpleasant smell.
- Diseases such as Hemorrhagic Fever, Salmonella Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis, Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome and an assortment of others can be spread easily by rats and mice.
