Problems Cockroaches Bring to Businesses in Illinois and Iowa
January 8, 2019
When a family is trying to choose where to eat for their evening out which is a more likely option for them to choose, the place down the road with better food but there are rumors about cockroaches in the kitchen, or the always clean and bug-free restaurant just a little further away? Time and time again, people will choose a cockroach-free establishment over good food. All it takes is one cockroach being spotted for a rumor to form and get out of control. Within a week, the rumor of one real cockroach could create the belief that an army of cockroaches was found. This begs the question, is your establishment at risk?
Cockroaches - Just a Threat to Business?
The short answer is, no. Though feared by business owners, cockroaches' ability to shut down businesses is not the only threat they bring:
- Cockroaches are filthy and known carriers of a plethora of bacteria and viruses. All it takes is a single run over one of your outgoing dishes and you could have sick customers on your hands. And we can all agree, lawsuits are often just as bad as your business being shut down.
- Cockroaches emit a smell. They enjoy living in nasty, rank-smelling environments, and the scent they give off is no different. It can even change the taste of the food you are serving.
- Cockroaches in your facility is an instant health code violation. With a tough enough inspector, all it takes is one cockroach noticed within your establishment and your business, along with your reputation, could be in jeopardy.
