We all probably experience an aversive reaction when we encounter a rat, especially when that happens inside of a nice restaurant. But is there a reason behind it? We can’t stand rats? First of all, rats due to their favourite activity of gnawing can seriously damage the structure of your property, your equipment, and even your products. They gnaw pretty much any material they find, from glass, plastic, and rubber to aluminum and even cement to keep their teeth in check. Most importantly though, rats are carriers of multiple pathogens, fleas, and ticks that may cause serious diseases when transmitted to humans. They can contaminate areas with their droppings and urine as well as the restaurant’s equipment and food. Thus, they not only compromise the cleanliness of your restaurant but also put the health of your employees and customers at serious risk. Moreover, the unpleasant odours that rats secrete can hamper the productivity of your employees and can violate several health codes.

Three are the main risks that you are taking if you neglect signs of a rat infestation:

  • Food Poisoning
  • Loss Of Business And Potential Fines
  • Closure By The Local Public Health Department

As you must have learned by now, dealing responsibly with a rat infestation at your restaurant is crucial. Train yourself and your employees to prevent rat issues by identifying rat infestations early signs. Common signs include:
