Pest Control for a College Canteen in Pune
Here is how “Balaji Herbal” is keeping the Canteen of the Symbiosis International University, Lavale Pune campus pest free
About Symbiosis International University, Lavale PuneThe Lavale Campus of Symbiosis International University houses 14 different colleges and accommodates hundreds of students. The Deemed University is located in the lush green hills 21 kms from Pune. Being a semi rural area the University Canteen is the main food hub for the college students and staff. Balaji Herbal was chosen the Pest Control Agency to keep the canteen pest-free, and we continue to do so to this date.
Pest Challenges at the CanteenLike any big eatery, the college canteen too can be a breeding ground for a variety of pests like cockroaches, ants, lizards, flies, rodents etc. A mere sight of a cockroach in the College Canteen can severely damage the reputation of the College. So it is utterly necessary to keep the College Canteen free of pests. It is not advisable to have an in-house staff to carry out the entire pest control for the Canteen, at the most the in-house staff can help with daily maintenance but the primary pest control needs to be done by a Professional Pest Control Agency only.
A Canteen can become a pest haven if proper preventive care is not taken, especially the canteen kitchen. “Prevention is better than Cure” is the policy you have to adopt when doing pest control in commercial places like a College Canteen. You just cannot afford to have pests and then act on them.
It is a common experience that people fall sick after eating at unhygienic places, most of the time these disease carrying germs are inadvertently planted by the pests in the kitchens. When it is dark, cockroaches, rodents, lizards etc., come out of their hiding places and crawl all over the place. Cockroaches crawl over the food sources, spoons, dishes, utensils, countertops and sinks etc, feeding on the food titbits left behind and carrying them to their nests. And it is not just Cockroaches, there are pests like lizards that come out to feed on the insects and flies etc. The worst part of pests is they carry disease-causing germs. The faeces of cockroaches is known to carry germs like E. Coli, Salmonella and other bacteria and germs that can cause Asthma, Typhoid Fever, Cholera, Dysentery and more. These germs get attached to the flies and are carried away to longer distances. Serving food in the dishes that were crawled by the pests can pose a serious threat to the guests. The unsuspecting guests coming to the College Canteen are vulnerable to these germs and can become sick and infected.
