Have Guests—Not Pests—For Dinner
As much as some of the other issues on this list might disturb you, for most people, the idea that pests have been in their food is the final straw.
No one wants to eat in a restaurant once they discover it is infested with cockroaches or rodents, and no business owner wants to see them in the kitchen. But even if you are simply a homeowner and not preparing food for anyone but yourself or your family, it’s a safe bet that you won’t want to eat the food that pests have been playing with.
And don’t take it personally; even the cleanest kitchens can have difficulty keeping pests away, especially in warmer climates. Many don’t realize what is accumulating under their stoves. Again, prevention is your best bet to keep ants, moths, cockroaches, and more at bay.
