Pest Control In Hotels, Bangalore


Ensuring a pest-free atmosphere is an important challenge concerning everyone in the

hospitality business. The presence of an insect infestation would almost certainly

adversely impact the image, employee relationships, and potentially financial results of

an organization. Hotels can become vulnerable to several pest issues.

Acuity Pest control is the most efficient way to keep these infestations at bay and pest-

related issues.



Experience with a pest in a hotel can ruin a guest's stay and lead to negative reviews on social media spreading the hotel's bad image, which has a serious impact on business. Pest infestation may also cause authorities to take legal action to ensure public safety, especially if the kitchens, restaurants, and bars are affected.

Pests can enter any hotel class some are brought in by the guests themselves so

every hotel must have effective procedures to prevent, monitor, and control pests.


Four of the most common pests that hotel guests encounter are:

1. Bed bugs

2. Cockroaches

3. Flies

4. Rodents


Bed bugs



Bed bugs have become more common with the rise in international travel in the last two

decades. Bed bugs are the most difficult pest to prevent entry into a hotel because

guests themselves mostly bring them to the premises even the best hotels can suffer

from an infestation.


Bed bugs can live without feeding for several months and they can easily be carried in

the luggage from hotel to hotel for multiple journeys.

No guest will want to come back from a hotel with a series of painful bites that can last

days. A persistent memory of a poor experience is much more likely to lead to a social

media post.


The trick to preventing the guests from attacking bed bugs is to recognize the problem

as soon as possible and take action to eradicate it.


Cockroaches

Cockroaches are a pest where food sources are readily available. Cockroaches in

hotels can infest kitchens, restaurants, bars, lobby public washrooms, or guest rooms

bathrooms. They are mainly nocturnal, choosing to spend the day in a shelter and

looking for food at night.


They take shelter in low, dark places in the building structures furniture, appliances,

food packaging, cracks and crevices, and in secret places such as pipework and cables

and inside drain pipes and sewers.

There are several cockroach species with slightly different habitat preferences but they

generally prefer warm and humid spots.

In addition to having a negative reaction on customers and staff may encounter this

insect, cockroaches are a health hazard because of their habits of:

Feeding on a foul contaminated matter such as mold, rotting food, fecal matter

in sewers, from rodents and birds, and animal carcasses

​Carrying pathogenic microorganisms, such as Salmonella, Staphylococcus,

Listeria, E. coli, and parasitic worms

​Producing allergens from their droppings and shed skins


Flies

Several fly species attracted to foodstuffs, including food waste, are pests in hotels.

House flies, fruit flies, drain flies, and blowflies from kitchens and food preparation areas

are attracted to the food odors. Housefly and fruit fly are the predominant pest insects.
