Pests love making their home in hotels. In fact, it’s really difficult to keep a hotel pest-free without the help of a professional pest control company. With so many people coming and going, it’s difficult to monitor everything that could possibly attract pests. A guest could leave leftover food on the counter overnight or another guest could bring bed bugs with them from home. The possibilities are really endless. That’s why, in order to prevent pest infestations, it’s imperative to hire a professional company to handle your hotel pest control. 

The Benefits of Professional Pest Control in Hotels

Discovering that your hotel has bed bugs, termites, ants, rodents, or any other pests can lead to huge problems. They can drastically affect your hotel’s reputation and can lead to failing or low health inspection grades. It’s best to prevent pests whenever possible, but if you do find yourself in a situation where pests have already invaded, your next step should undoubtedly be to contact a professional pest control company. 

Identification of Pest Problems

A professional pest control company can help identify your pest problems. Whether you need help identifying the exact type of pest, whether or not you have a pest, or how the pests are getting in, a Sacramento pest control expert can help. In some cases, pests are easy to identify, such as when you see a mouse in the kitchen or see a swarm of ants, but other pests like bed bugs and termites can be harder to identify. It’s also extremely important to understand how big the infestation is in order to properly treat it. 

Prevention of Future Infestations

Our Integrated Pest Management Program

At Earthwise Pest Management, we use an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program. This is a three-step, environmentally-responsible process that is extremely effective at ridding businesses like hotels of pests. We always recommend that we follow up after treatment with pest maintenance and management so that you can be sure your hotel won’t suffer from another pest infestation in the future. 

Step 1: Inspection

Step one is inspection. This involves finding the pest, deciding how big the infestation is, and finding their source of food and water. In order to effectively treat the current problem and prevent future infestations, we need to know how this one started in the first place. 

Step 2: Identification

Step two is identifying the pest. Different pests require different treatments. They also have different preferences. Some require moisture, while others like dry environments. Understanding which pest we are dealing with is imperative to effectively treating any infestation.

Step 3: Treatment

Step three is treatment. We use the information that we have discovered in the previous two steps to create an effective treatment plan. This step includes treating the pest problem, removing the pests food and water source, and preventing them from entering your hotel in the same manner to ensure that your hotel does not suffer from future outbreaks.

Pests That Are Common in Sacramento Hotels

Hotels provide us with a place to sleep, relax, eat, and even have a few drinks at the bar. There is a constant flow of people coming and going. All of this can lead to a perfect place for pests to make a home. Guests can leave food lying around for days, especially if they put up their “do not disturb” sign, there’s sweet drinks at the bar, and plenty of food in the kitchen. Hotels are some of the hardest businesses to keep pests away from and an infestation can be absolutely detrimental to the hotel’s success. 

Hotels are specifically susceptible to certain types of pests such as bedbugs, cockroaches, rodents, ants, and termites because they tend to provide a perfect environment for these particular pests. Even with the most thorough cleaning, hotels can still attract pests.

Bed Bugs

There’s not much that makes a guest, or an employee for that matter, squirm more than seeing a cockroach. Cockroaches are notorious for living through the toughest conditions and for thriving anywhere they decided to call home. There are some things that you can do in your hotel to help prevent a cockroach infestation such as keeping food in tightly sealed containers, taking the trash out frequently, and keeping kitchens and bars clean. However, even with keeping a clean environment, cockroaches can still find their way in, and once they are there, they can live up to a month without food.

Rodents

Rodents are one of the larger pests that frequent hotels. They love the crumbs left behind by guests and have plenty of room to hide. One of the last things you want is for a hotel guest to see a mouse or rat scurrying down the hallway or out from under their bed. There isn’t a much quicker way to lose customers than with a rodent problem.

Ants

Ants come in many varieties. Some prefer wet conditions while others prefer dry, and some will even chew their way through the wood in your walls. Ants are extremely difficult to get rid of without the help of a professional pest control company. While they might not be the biggest of the pests, they certainly invade quickly and they are known for spreading disease and contaminating food.

Termites

Termites are a pest that can do extreme damage to your hotel building and can go unnoticed for years, or even decades. Termites could be eating away at your walls at any moment and it is very unlikely that you will know until it is too late, unless you employ the help of a Sacramento pest control company that knows how to identify and treat termite infestations.

Why You Need Professional Hotel Pest Control

A pest infestation can ruin your hotel’s reputation and cause low, if not failing, health inspection grades. All it takes is for one guest to see a rodent, ant, or cockroach in your hotel for things to snowball into the destruction of the reputation you have worked so hard to build. Professional hotel pest control can help not only get rid of a current pest problem, but can also help you prevent an infestation in the future.  

Health Inspections

Health inspections occur randomly throughout the year to ensure that places that serve food are being held to a certain set of standards. It’s important to make sure that the food coming out of any kitchen is not going to put a guest in danger of getting sick. If a health inspector notices a pest problem, this will very quickly negatively affect your health inspection grade and could even possibly shut down your hotel until the problem is resolved. 

Health inspections grades are made available for the public. You don’t want your customers seeing that you got a low or failing grade because the health inspector found cockroaches, rodents, ants, or other pests in your hotel. You can prevent all of this by simply hiring Earthwise Pest Management for hotel pest control prevention. 

Your Hotel’s Reputation

If word gets out that someone has spotted a pest at your hotel, it will spread quickly and could completely destroy your hotel’s reputation. Nobody wants to stay in a hotel where they have to fear coming across a rat, cockroach, or might be risking sleeping with bedbugs. If your hotel becomes known for having pests of any kind, that is not an easy thing to come back from. Investing in preventative hotel pest control can help keep your reputation intact.

The Health of Your Employees and Guests

Many pests, including rodents, ants, and cockroaches are known for spreading disease. Ants can spread salmonella, staph infection, and more while rodents can spread rat bite fever and plague. Cockroaches are known for spreading all of those diseases plus typhoid fever, cholera, and strep throat. Cockroaches can even trigger asthma attacks in some people. Having a pest infestation isn’t just an inconvenience and an unpleasant experience, it can make your employees and guests sick. They commonly contaminate food, which can cause disease to spread through your hotel very quickly. 

Keep Your Building Safe

While pests are most commonly known for spreading disease, some can negatively affect the structural integrity of your building. Both carpenter ants and termites can destroy the wood in your walls. While termites are best known for eating wood, carpenter ants burrow their way through it to get around. They don’t destroy it as fast, but they still do quite a bit of damage.

Termite colonies have been known to contain over a million termites each. They are very hard to detect without professional help and can completely destroy your hotel building.
