Successful Pest Control Tips For Your Hotel

Effective pest control is a factor that determines the success of any hotel.  Travelers and vacationers from all over the world make hotels their places of stop and stay, and expect to have an enjoyable, safe, and secure stay in a pleasant and welcoming environment. 

Every part of your hotel, from the welcoming lobby to the suites, laundry to kitchen, bathrooms to the restaurant, gym to the spa, and every other facility must serve to remind guests at all-time that they are at their home away from home.

A range of safety and health guidelines are there for hotels to comply with: environmental laws, food safety laws as well as health and safety laws. Any unchecked pest presence, therefore, jeopardizes and poses a threat to the sustainability of your hotel.

A single negative review on social media or your website can cause financial stress and loss to you and your staff. It is therefore important that you have a comprehensive, well-balanced, proactive Integrated Pest Management strategy that is critical to supporting your bottom line.

Familiarizing your staff with these pest control tips for hotel operators and the implementation of your pest control program will ensure that your guests are always kept happy.

Understand the peculiarities of your pest problem

Coming and going never ceases in a hotel, and the constant foot traffic in and out of the hotel premises is an avenue for enterprising pests to weasel their way in. 

The most recurrent and problematic pests of all are bed bugs. Notoriously small and difficult to spot, they are the most easily transported pests into any hotel through luggage or guests. 

Integral Pest Services know that those bed bugs, along with rodentsantscockroaches, and birds are common pests of the hospitality industry. 

We work with you to:

  •  identify each of these pests, 
  • develop proactive measures against them,
  • provide constant monitoring of their presence, and
  •  immediately rectify any problem long before your guests’ notice them.

Follow Best Practices

By implementing a proactive monitoring and prevention program, you will significantly reduce pest sightings and control costs. 

Training housekeeping and food services staff in early detection and pest prevention procedures will reinforce your pest prevention and control practices that you have developed in partnership with your pest control provider.  If staff become lax in their roles or negligent in carrying out their duties, the best pest prevention and control services you may employ will not have any impact on pest prevention or remediation. 

Ensuring that your staff are trained and exercising best practices will reduce the attractiveness of your hotel and provide you with the upper hand in remediation.
