Restaurant Pest Control
Serving North Bay and East Bay Areas
No industry’s reputation is more threatened by pest infestations than the food industry. Restaurants, commercial kitchens, and other foodservice buildings have the highest standards when it comes to pest management, and it’s easy to understand why. One sight of a rodent or cockroach inside of a restaurant can not only ruin a reputation but also lead to citations or a complete shutdown. Western Exterminator, formerly Hitmen is committed to working with businesses in the restaurant industry to prevent infestations from happening in the first place through our quality IPM methods and our reliable restaurant pest control services.
Common Pests in Restaurants & Food Service Industries
Few commercial buildings deal with the pest problems restaurants face. Even in the tidiest of facilities, a lot of food is distributed and people travel in and out of the restaurant daily, making pests a threat at any time. Although some are more common than others, restaurants and commercial kitchens are likely to face issues with the following pests:
- Pantry beetles
- And more!

The Risks of Pests in Restaurants and Food Service Facilities
As frustrating as it is, pests simply can’t resist finding their way into food industry buildings. Once they’ve infested a restaurant, it can be hard to get rid of them. Besides ruining the reputation of a dining establishment, pests bring along many other problems:
- Pests carry diseases such as typhoid, cholera, E. coli, and salmonella.
- They can contaminate food with droppings, urine, and filth.
- Rodents can carry other pests such as ticks, mites, and flees.
- Severe damage can be inflicted upon buildings, wiring, fixtures, and machinery.
- Pests can leave behind messes that are costly to clean up.
