Why pest control is essential for hotels
As the tourism industry relies heavily on reviews, pests can severely impact your reputation and business. Signs of bed bugs and rats will quickly make their way onto social media platforms and review sites across Aotearoa. Guests are in holiday mode and may not be as clean as they are at home.
Pests are attracted to skip bins, laundry facilities and hotel rooms because they’re areas where water or rubbish can be left. Guests bring snacks into their room and usually can’t clean up properly. From inner city hotels in Auckland and Wellington to cabins in Otago and Canterbury regions, all tourist operators need to be alert for pests.
Fast food and soft drink can be left on a table overnight, attracting ants. Dirty dishes and cups are often left sitting on a table or in a sink, which can attract cockroaches.
Guests expect their lodgings to be pest free. That’s why you need to be proactive with your pest control.
Cockroaches are a common pest in hotel rooms
Cockroaches are attracted to damp, unclean areas across both the north and south islands. Although these pests are shy, they’re visible once their numbers reach a threshold. A cockroach infestation will invade storage areas and skip bins. As these areas are open, the perimeter needs to be treated.
Bed bugs are a pest in hotels, motels and hostels
Bed bugs and their eggs can enter your backpacker hostel, motel or hotel in bags, clothing and shoes. At night they feed on blood as guests sleep, leaving itchy red welts on their body. This can obviously be disturbing and can cause anxiety and sleeplessness. Their bites aren’t known to cause diseases, but constant scratching can lead to infections. Regardless, this isn’t a pleasant experience.
Our technicians treat rooms, furniture in the foyer and laundry facilities for bed bugs.
Rats and mice are common pests in tourist areas
Another pest we find around loading docks, skip bins and storage rooms is rodents. Rodents can cause structural damage. They chew through wood, plaster and even electrical wiring. Rats and mice spread diseases and can be devastating to your reputation. Our SMART Digital Pest Control can treat these pests discreetly, proactively and safely.
Rodents constantly urinate, contaminating food preparation surfaces and can trigger allergies and asthma attacks. Rodents are typically found in laundry rooms, food service areas, loading docks and garbage disposal areas.
