What should you look for in a restaurant pest control company?
#1. Effective treatment
Above all else, you need the pest control treatment to work. That’s why it’s important to hire a company like KY-KO Pest Prevention. We use EPA-approved products to eliminate pests, and then proven strategies to deter re-infestation.
For obvious reasons, having a pest control van roll up during your restaurant’s business hours isn’t a great idea. That’s why you should really only work with a company that has experience working with businesses like yours, and is willing to work around your hours.
#3. Trusted pest prevention company
You should choose to work with a restaurant pest control company that other companies—and residential customers—trust. Look at online reviews to get a sense for how people feel the company has fulfilled promises or how effective their service is.
Or, check out their BBB listing to see how they’re rated and if there are any outstanding complaints from other business owners. Finally, you can always call the company and ask to speak to references of long-time customers.
#4. Long-term planning
A company that just sprays your business once and then leaves, never to be heard from again, is doing your restaurant a disservice.
In your industry, pest control needs to be treated less as an every-now-and-then affair and more as a wartime strategy, with experts providing you with the plan of attack to remove, prevent, and eliminate pests.
When you’re looking for a restaurant pest control company, ask them about their strategy for the long-term prevention of pests. At KY-KO, “prevention” is in the name itself, and it’s our focus. When you call us for your free pest inspection, we’ll help you craft a long-term plan for removing and prevent infestation.
#5. Certified and meets reporting standards
Finally, you need a company that knows what they’re doing in terms of reporting and meeting state and federal regulations. This is just another reason never to hire a fly-by-night company for a sole proprietor for your pest control.
In contrast, we meet all industry controls and follow OSHA laws and regulations. Our techs are trained to keep detailed logs and communication reports, and we handle insurance certification, USDA / FDA reporting, sanitation reports, and more.
Plus, KY-KO Pest is licensed, bonded, and insured for your protection. It’s just another thing that makes KY-KO a great commercial pest control company.
