Why Grease Trap Cleaning is More Important Than Ever
COVID-19 has brought with it a lot of issues, not least among them an increase in pests. Mice and rats will eat most foods that are available, so it is important that business owners who use grease traps adhere to regular maintenance and cleaning.
Has your business been closed down or experienced less traffic? Now is a good time to have grease traps cleaned. While you may run a tight ship and keep things clean, that is no guarantee that mice and rats won’t come calling. Certain types of vermin are very selective on what they eat.
Increase in Pest Activity
Pest control experts have been putting out warnings related to the COVID-19 shutdowns. Mice and rats are creatures of habit. If they have a regular food source, life is good. However, once these critters find that the supply line has been cut off, they begin to travel further afield.
Grease traps are the ideal feeding ground for vermin. These opportunistic scavengers have two choices during the pandemic: eat each other or find another food source. The latter is where you start having problems.
The word “vermin” is kind of harsh, given that these animals are simply following their generational instincts to find food and multiply. Pest control specialists have confirmed that rodent behavior has changed, so to speak. If there is no food at the usual haunts, anywhere close by will do. So, your grease traps haven’t been cleaned since the lockdown? That could mean you are now the premier vermin magnet within a mile’s radius.
