Prepare for Tourist Season with Hotel Pest Control

With the busy tourist season on its way, hotels are no doubt in preparation mode. As well as deep cleaning and decor touch-ups, a huge part of preparing your hotel for the busy tourist season is your hotel pest control. 

Pest control for hotels is vital, not only to keep your guests happy and healthy but also to keep areas safe for staff and maintenance. That’s why keeping on top of pest control maintenance is important.

Pest Control in Hotels

Hotels can be a breeding ground for many pests, which is why hotel pest control is so important. Keeping your hotel free from pests is of the utmost importance, especially during the busy tourist season when you have guests coming and going almost every day, and the best time to get on top of your hotel pest control is now.

As with any business, there are some pests that are more common than others in hotels. These pests can be a nuisance, and should be dealt with upon first spotting them to stop any potential infestations. These pests include:

  • Rats
  • Mice
  • Bed Bugs
  • Cockroaches
  • Wasps
  • Flies
  • Fleas
  • Pigeons
  • Ants

Some of these pests can carry diseases such as salmonella, which can cause problems for your staff and guests, so it is essential for health and safety purposes to keep your hotel clean and pest free.

The best prevention method for pests in any environment is regular cleaning. You can also use your regular maintenance to ensure all areas where pests can get into your premises. In kitchens and restaurants, you can also prevent pests by making sure bins are regularly cleared out, food waste is gotten rid of straight away, and spills are cleaned up instantly. 

Regular cleaning and sterilising in guest areas such as bedrooms, lobbies, and common areas is important for pest control, and monitoring by staff can help you to keep your business safe and pest-free.

Specific Control by Pest

Some pests require specific pest control methods in addition to regular cleaning and maintenance.

Bed Bugs: The most effective solutions for removing bed bugs from your property is through heat treatments. Whole-room heating conducted by a professional pest control service will ensure the whole room gets to the correct temperature, and this will eliminate the bed bugs from your bedding, furniture, carpets, and cracks and crevices.

Rodents: The best method of rodent control is preventing rats and mice from access to food, water and shelter on your property. Remove or block places where rats and mice could shelter in and around buildings. A building structure can offer many places of access, such as doorways, windows, screens, pipes, vents, cracks, drains and holes. These need to be maintained or altered to remove any gaps large enough for rats and mice to run or squeeze through.

One way to keep hotel pests at bay is through establishing a pest control contract. A contract helps you to minimise the risk of pest infestation before it happens, as the contract provider will complete actions to mitigate pest activity throughout the year.

As well as monitoring current pest problems, hotel pest control contracts also work with you to deter pests, making sure that infestations don’t occur and pests don’t become a problem for your business.
