Mice and Rats Running in Downtown Seattle
Rats and Mice are running marathons in Downtown Seattle and outlying areas.
Restaurants in the north and south areas of downtown are being infested
with rats and mice. But this doesn’t mean residential buildings or midtown
restaurants are exempt. Rat and mice infestations are serious and do it
yourself methods aren’t always the way to go. The creepy rats and mice
reproduce at a very high rate and will overrun a home or business. Pest
control services was not an option but rather a necessity.
Rats and Mice are gnaw happy:
The filthy rats and mice are nasty and will leave behind urine, feces and
afterbirth. Insulation in attics and crawl spaces are huge targets. Rats
enjoy gnawing insulation and electrical wiring that can result in a fire.
The downtown Seattle restaurant owner that recently learned there was rat
and mice problem knew professional help was needed. A business associate
recommended AMPM Exterminators to eliminate the rat and mice infestation.
How can rats and mice get in:
The physical makeup of a rat and mouse gives easy access to restaurants
through entry points the size of a quarter or a dime. Think about how many
times a day doors are open and closing at a restaurant. Rats can run
swiftly and hide so quick. Open garbage bins outside and open garbage cans
are open invitations to come on in. cannot be stressed enough why the
professional eliminator’s priority is to do a perimeter check of the
Restaurant smorgasbords but for rats:
The AMPM Exterminators Pest Control expert inspected the entire premises.
There are many places to check for rats in any type of restaurant. Floor
drains need to be tightly sealed. Trash cans and garbage dumpster lids need
to be securely closed. Kitchen equipment and appliances must be cleaned on
a daily basis. Never leave unwashed items in the sink. Drains should be
free of food garbage. Rats can sniff out food in all possible places. Check
all opened boxes or food storage bins daily. Rats are ingenious in finding
ways to hide and nest. Taking all of the precautions and practicing daily
cleansing the restaurant won’t be offering a smorgasbord for rats and mice
only. AMPM Exterminators is ready and armed to eliminate the rat and mice
Proper sanitation and preventative measures:
Proper sanitation is imperative for the restaurant owners. Keeping the
premises clean will be one of the deciding factors in keeping the business
open and profitable. One of the mandatory restaurant rules is that the
outdoor garbage bins and indoor trash can lids must be tightly sealed.
Think about the smorgasbord that is being being offered in the garbage
containers. A major contributing factor to this type of infestation is
unsanitary practices. All kitchen equipment should cleaned and sanitized
each and every day. Employees should be cleaning throughout the day.
Managers and owners should spot check the restaurant often. The perimeter
of the building also should be checked in a regular basis. Kitchens and
pantries are rat magnets. Do not leave leftover food on stoves and counters
and wipe down all surface areas. Leaving back doors open or ajar is a
welcome sight to the rodents that gives easy access. Restaurant owners can
only stay open if precautionary measures are taken. The restaurant owners
will be protecting against the loss of income due to a rat infestation. It
only takes one customer to see a rat or mouse and that is the worst
publicity to get. People will get on cell phones and possibly calling the
Health Department. Customers leaving behind unpaid tabs behind which would
definitely prove costly. Financial loss and the Health Department can shut
the business down.
All three restaurant owners hired AMPM Exterminators:
The Seattle downtown restaurant rat and mice infestation is populating at a
high rate. The restaurant owner need AMPM Exterminators to take care of
the rat infestation. There was another restaurant owner that did everything
possible to investigate and even set traps. But the self-help methods did
not work. Only a few rats were caught in traps and nobody wanted to get rid
of the dead rodents. Which meant there were dead rats sitting around
causing foul odor and the opportunity for airborne bacteria was high. The
best decision was made to call AMPM Exterminators for the professional
expertise needed to exterminate the restaurant rat infestation. A parting
thought would be to protect your asset, the restaurant and property. AMPM
Exterminators was able to get rid of the rat infestations and the owners
opted for a recurring monthly service to prevent future rat and mice
issues. The services proved beneficial that the owners went for bi-monthly
services. Satisfied customers and successful exterminations for the
downtown Seattle restaurants. One owner that hit the recommendation from
his business associate to call AMPM Exterminators was eternally grateful.
Rodents, and large vertebrate such as raccoon, opossums, squirrels and cats can infest attics and crawlspaces causing damage and creating health issues.
