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 the reputation of your hotel.
However, this does not mean that the cost of protection is excessive – the important thing is to recognise the pest risks that different parts of a hotel face and then develop service programmes to meet them:
Proactive treatment is essential in these areas and will be expected by environmental health inspections.
If pests are not adequately controlled, they will move from food preparation and storage zones into dining and other areas which may cause nuisance or distress to your customers.
The biggest pest threats to hotel accommodation areas are bed bugs and other biting insects.
Bed bugs are becoming a major issue in hotels in many parts of the world. All hotels are at risk from bedbugs, but especially those where there are large numbers of international travellers or those that have patrons that move frequently between hotels.
Prompt action against bed bugs is key – early detection and treatment ensures that they do not spread to other parts of the building.
As well as treating and preventing bed bug problems, Rentokil can help you to train your staff to look for signs of bed bugs to ensure early detection.
Other areas of the hotel including sports facilities or back-of-house areas are at lower risk of infestation, but should be included as part of the regular servicing plan.
Rentokil 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.
The Pest Prevention Service from Rentokil is designed to protect hotels from pests with tailored plan based on specific threats and your particular needs.
Your local technician will regularly visit your premises to check bait stations, look for signs of pest activity, identify potential risks and advise on any steps to reduce the risk of future pest problems.
Our rapid response commitment means that your technician will be with you quickly to deal with the pest problem so that it does not return.
If you are looking across a network of sites, these can all be incorporated into a single service agreement with an account manager to coordinate service delivery across your hotels while each individual site will still have its links to their local technicians and surveyors.
