Did you know that cockroaches are one of the most common pests found in commercial premises whether it be the common cockroach or the pesky German cockroaches.

 

Unfortunately for us cockroaches have been around since the dinosaur era and will continue to be one of pest controllers worst nightmares.

 

Whether you own a hotel, restaurant, factory, warehouse, or café you will at least come into contact one time with these bacteria, germ infested critters.

 

Redline Pest Control understands how important it is the get a hold of the breeding cycle of all species of cockroaches, we first inspect, identify, and then treat your commercial premises.

 

Redline Pest Control will take any precautions as we know that health and safety is the number one goal when obtaining effective pest control.

 

Fortunately for our clients there is no odour when we carry out pest treatments internally and a very low odour for completing pest control externally.

 

Here at Redline Pest Control we alternate between products so cockroaches don’t build up an immunity and will we be able to effectively reduce the population and breeding cycle of the cockroach.

 

What are some signs that could lead to an infestation of cockroaches?

 

  • Live active cockroaches running around especially in the day time as they are nocturnal.
  • Droppings/smearing marks around electrical appliances, walls, cupboards and behind furniture in your premises.
  • Egg casings whether they have eggs or not.
  • A distinctive smell in the affected areas.
  • Cockroach carcases when they molt.
  • Damage to electrical appliances as they chew through wiring.

 

What could happen if you don’t get the cockroach issue at hand?

 

If you are in the food sector you really must read this part as this is vital to know especially if you are new to the food industry.

 

Cockroaches carry a bacteria that can be harmful to not only yourself but to your potential clients. Cockroach droppings contain the Staphylococcus, Salmonella, and streptococcus virus.

 

  • Loss of business when a customer sees cockroaches in your premises?
  • If council comes in you could get a fine and be placed on the NSW food registry.
  • May need to change electrical appliances as the cockroaches have chewed through them.

 

What are some things you can do before we get to your commercial premises?

 

  • Go around and seal all cracks and crevices as pests can enter even the smallest of gaps.
  • Prevent harbourage spaces. Remove any clutter, boxes, and any other items where pest can hide.
  • Inspect all stock that comes into your commercial premises for any pests as often German cockroaches and other pests are bought in from an outside source.
  • Empty all bins to the outside council bin once full and at the end of the night.
  • At the end of the night make sure that you do a full clean of all cooking equipment, utensils, benches, tables, chairs, bar area and any other area that is in your commercial premises.
  • For bar flies, midges, drain flies and any other flying insect that lives around the drains put draino or bleach down the drains to kill off any eggs which have been laid in there.
  • Put all food stock away in appropriate places such as a pantry and fridges/freezers.
  • Check all incoming boxes for cockroaches and their eggs

Commercial Pest Control & What Redline Pest Control Can Do For You!!!

Pest Control for all commercial food industries 

 

Did you know that pests in commercial food industries not only will lose clients but also breach health and safety regulations here in NSW.

 

Eradicating pests is a high priority for commercial food industries. Unfortunately, we are hearing and seeing more and more clients who have had pest control by another pest company who have not provided an effective treatment and when the client calls the pest company will only provide a service if they pay yet again (even ineffective treatments)

 

Biggest Pest Problem

 

German cockroaches are the most common pest problem when it comes to the food sector.

 

Normal common cockroaches will breed every six weeks and will usually have between five to 12 baby cockroaches wherefore the German cockroach will breed every six weeks and will have between 40 to 50 baby cockroaches, so you can imagine for every female German cockroach you have an infestation very quickly.

 

Unfortunately, commercial food industries are a favourite place for German cockroaches as they provide an adequate source of food. With the high moisture and warm electrical appliance this makes German cockroaches thrive.

 

Pest Control for commercial food industries.

 

There are three things that must be done to ensure commercial food industries remains German cockroach free.

 

Firstly, ensure that all food is to be kept in airtight containers and put away in the appropriate places.

 

Next, at the end of each day make sure that you have a cleaning check list in place for both yourself and your employees.

 

  • Encourage all employees to Clean their Workstation and surrounding areas
  • Remove any water sources at the end of each day
  • At the end of the day clean any food scraps, work stations, sweep and mop the floors
  • Keep all garbage in a sealed dumpster which should be away from entry points of your premises
  • Clean outdoor eating areas daily and be sure to remove any crumbs and leftovers that will attract pests.

 

Finally, always be on time for your pest service as you don’t want an outbreak of pests in your commercial food industries as this will deter any potential customers and the power of social media these days could ruin your business.

Good Pest Control For Your Commercial Business!

 

Pest Control Sydney – Do you spray in the rain?

 

 

 

Pest Control Sydney –  Do you spray in the rain?

 

No!

 

Why?

 

Unfortunately here at Redline Pest Control we don’t spray in wet weather or break treatments up in wet weather as we don’t want your treatment to be washed away with the rain.

 

Whether it is light rain or heavy rain your appointment will be rescheduled if you have external areas included in your package.

 

Why do we reschedule the whole appointment when it rains?

 

We have proven methods that work and by splitting up a treatment you are not getting a full barrier against pests from entering your home.

 

We have tested and tried splitting treatments up when it rains and we simply don’t find that we get the best results for any treatment that has been split up.

 

Will you reschedule if it looks like it is going to rain?

 

At the end of each day and beginning of each day we check and monitor the weather in your local area and will determine if a treatment needs to be reschedule, if it is only cloudy we will still come out and perform the treatment.

 

What if it rains after my appointment?

 

If it rains within 4 hours after your appointment we will come back out to your premises and respray at no charge to you as we can’t help how the weather pans out. A note will be put in your client file that it had rained that day and that if any issues arises with pests that we will also come back out at no charge to you.

 

If it rains the night prior to your booking your service may be rescheduled as the ground may still be wet at the time of your booking. If the ground is wet the chemical will not bind and therefore will be ineffective and a waste of your precious hard earned money.

 

So can any treatments get done if it rains?

 

The following premises can be sprayed for pest control:

Commercial premises – as long as there are no external areas.

Units – as long as there are no external areas.

Houses – as long as there are no external areas.

German cockroaches, internal fleas, rodents, bedbugs, lice/mites.

So you have this beautiful restaurant with beautiful food in a great part town but one thing is lurking over your head. The dreaded rat runs over your customers table with a loud screech there is sudden uproar in your restaurant with customers all scrambling around in panic.

 

Not only are you going to suffer from income loss from customers not dining at your restaurant but you could potentially unintentionally poison your customers from the faeces and urine that rats and cockroaches leave behind.

 

These days the council is pretty much going to each and every food premises often surprising food business owners with inspections for pest and cleanliness. If you are one of these food premises you could leave yourself wide open for hefty fines, prosecution and being place on the NSW Food Authority Website where everyone has access to see anyone who has been fined.

 

Food operators must also know that going with the cheapest quote will not always mean that your pest issues will be handled correctly and efficiently.

We all love getting with our friends sharing laughs while we dine at our favourite places to eat whether it is the local restaurant, pub, take away that swanky upmarket bar.

 

Do we really know what is lurking behind the doors of these places that we frequent?

 

Are you a business owner and finding it difficult to gain control over pest which are lurking around like they own the joint?

 

Redline Pest Control deals with all pests regardless if they are big or small and will find a solution which is suited to the needs of your food premises.

 

What sets Redline Pest Control apart from other pest control companies?

 

Redline Pest Control uses the Integrated Pest Management.

 

What is the Integrated Pest Management?

 

The Integrated Pest Management is a system that Redline Pest Control uses in order to carry out and maintain a pest free business.

 

The Integrated Pest Management method consists of 5 basic steps that each technician will carry out at your appointment and they are:

 

  1. Inspection – A thorough inspection of your business premises will be conducted even in those areas which don’t have any pest issues.
  2. Identification – Will correctly identify any pests which are lurking around in your business.
  3. Threshold Levels – To establish the threshold levels of all pests which are in your business.
  4. Control Measures – To control and manage all pests which are in your business.
  5. Evaluation – Each technician will evaluate the effectiveness of our service which we have applied  to your business to make sure that we have eradicated and eliminate all pests which are in your business.

 

So let’s take a minute to talk about what can happen if you do not have any pest maintenance programs in place.

 

I have a client who has a chain of restaurants who thought he could tackle a cockroach and rodent problem on his own. He would place baits and spray the restaurants before he closed for the night just using everyday fly spray that you get over the counter at your local grocery shop.

 

While at first that may of provided temporary relief it wasn’t getting rid of the pest issue.

 

It wasn’t until the council came into one of his restaurants and fined him for fail to take practicable measures to eradicate and prevent the harbourage of pests that he realised that he needed help in eradicating the rodents and cockroaches.

 

It is vital for anyone who has a food business to always have a pest management service in place and to always maintain that pest maintenance service to avoid pest from entering your food business.

 

Other than copping a fine from the council what else can go wrong if pest are not eradicated?

 

You defiantly don’t want your customers to fall sick or die eating your food. Yes, I know you are probably thinking she is so dramatic as if anyone is going to get sick or die from eating our food but trust me it does happen.

 

With pest comes diseases and with diseases comes sickness and in some cases death.

 

Cockroaches, rodents and other pest will always contaminate food, prepping stations, utensils, pots and pans by running over it or soiling it with their waste.

 

Once being fined from the council they will give your company details to the NSW Food Authority and they will then place your details on their name and shame section on their website.

 

You’re on the name and shame so what, what could go wrong? Its only a website. Nobody checks it.

 

Well you are wrong, many people have subscribed to the name and shame and will check it to see if their favourite restaurant is listed on there for any issues before heading out.

 

Once being placed on the register every potential customer will be able to see what it is exactly that you have been fined for and when you were fined.

 

Loss of reputation could ruin your business.

 

Word of mouth resulting in a loss of business resulting in you closing your doors for good.

Dead carcasses and the blow fly!

pest pic

 

Monday I had a frantic call from a concerned client saying there was an unusual amount of blow flies swarming in her home and she didn’t know where they were coming from.

 

I asked her the usual questions like can she smell something decaying, was there any meat left out, does she have pets as maybe it is the food that they might not of eaten, to check to see if there was any animals on her property that may of passed. Nothing I asked was occurring so I asked one of our technicians to do an emergency job to investigate why this customer has blow flies in her home.

 

John arrived at the client’s home in Parramatta and searched the lawns, subfloor, and interior and made his way up to the roof void where he instantly smelled a decaying matter. Upon further investigations of the roof void he had found dead rodents in the roof void.

 

John removed two dead rodents but was unable to get the third rodent as it had slipped into the wall cavity. John advised the customer that he was putting the odour eliminating bag in the roof void and that it will suck up any bad smells that was in the roof void.

 

Our client had used a different pest controller to do a rodent treatment and when she had tried to call that pest controller he no longer had his phone in service.

 

Usually when pest controllers bait for rodents they will use bait that has a thinning agent in it so it coagulates the blood stopping it from releasing a bad smell.

 

Unfortunately for our client the bait that was used was a stock standard bait that you could get from the local hardware house which doesn’t have this thinning agent in it.

 

Needless to say our client was so happy that the blow flies have since disappeared and that we have found the source of the issue.
