Restaurants see their fair share of pests. August is shaping up to be a huge pest control month for both residential clients and commercial ones too. What are we expecting for August for food service industry clients? Insect pests, rodents, mammals, and birds. Here’s a closer look.
Wasps remain a big threat, and in August, their numbers will only have increased. Birds, such as sparrows and starling, will continue to pester guests by begging for food and making messes. Flies are a big issue throughout the summer, and August is no exception. Meat wasps are attracted to food, and nobody loves a sandwich more than a yellowjacket.
Flies too will continue to bother patrons, especially in outdoor settings. Mosquitoes will invite themselves to meals during the early morning and later afternoon.

Pests that are attracted to garbage are nearly year-round problems. These range from feral cats to garbage spreading birds. Expect rodents, wasp, flies, mammals, and insects to be problems around dumpsters, grease traps, and garbage cans. This is a prime time for cockroaches to be on the move too and finding a good restaurant is prime real estate for them.
Big for August are ants and rodents. We expect both to be a problem. You may also see pests such as mealy worms, carpet moths, and beetles in areas where grains are kept. August and September are big months for rodent issues. The early spring has allowed pest populations to swell and by August we are talking about fifth and six generations of rodents all competing for food.
Commercial Pest Control Services
For restaurants, the best approach to pest control is a monthly service. This allows our professionals to control pests before they become noticeable. Waiting until a pest becomes a problem makes managing them more difficult and time-consuming. Act now and the pest population will stay small or become nonexistent.
