You focus on your restaurant. Your local extermination experts at Viking Pest Control will take care of the pests.
Rid Your Restaurant of Pests for Good
You don’t need us to tell you how damaging and disruptive pests, like rodents, cockroaches, and flies can be to your restaurant, food store, or commercial foodservice. Not only are they a significant health and safety hazard, but they also present a tremendous risk to the satisfaction of your customers and staff. Imagine the disgust a diner at your restaurant would feel at the sight of a cockroach scurrying across the floor. It would be enough to turn even the most loyal patron away from your restaurant and send them straight to Yelp or other social platforms to leave a negative review.
As an owner or manager of any food-related business, you already have enough on your plate. Cooking delicious food, managing your business, and keeping your customers happy is hard enough on its own. You should not have to deal with pests on top of this.

Viking Pest Control offers a wide range of services to keep your establishment pest-free and clean.

Specific Solutions for Specific Pests
Every pest poses a different set of problems for your food establishment. That’s why Viking Pest Control offers several individualized methods and services depending on what kind of pest control you need. Below are some common food industry pests to look out for. If you’re ready to partner with the leading local pest control experts, Viking Pest Control is ready to free your business from pests!
Comprehensive Fly Solution: Flies are the foremost cause of insect-related transmission of foodborne illnesses and thus pose a specific problem to any business that handles food. Their mere presence can signify unhealthy, often undetected, sanitation concerns. Viking Pest Control’s Fly solution begins with a meticulous inspection of your property that will leave no stone unturned. Food storage, waste management, and portals to the dining area, such as windows, doors unscreened vents, drains and plumbing lines, will all be carefully examined. If flies are found, your local extermination expert will use integrated pest management (IPM) techniques to terminate them and make sure they are unable to infiltrate your establishment again.
Comprehensive Rodent Solution: Rats and mice typically seek shelter near their food source. If they decide your establishment is where they are getting their meals, you might have a rodent infestation on your hands. If you have a rodent problem, Viking Pest Control has the solution. Our SMART rodent control system detects and roots out any current and future occurrences using data instead of poison to monitor your facility 24/7. SMART rodent control is 100% non-toxic, 100% digital, and 100% hassle-free for you and your team. To learn more about our SMART solution call 800-618-2847 to get in contact with one of our local commercial account specialists.
Comprehensive Cockroach Control: Your local NJ, PA, DE, or MD extermination expert will carefully inspect your building for the presence of cockroaches, including identifying potential harborage areas, food, and water sources, drains, basements, and waste disposal areas. Viking Pest Control will treat any infestation with the most effective pest control treatments to ensure your business remains cockroach free.
Comprehensive Pest Bird Control: Though birds may appear to pose no harm to your restaurant, this is far from the case. Pest birds carry a wide array of harmful bacteria and diseases, as well as acting as a host to unhealthy organisms. Pest birds can be quite a hassle to get rid of. The local bird control experts at Bird Doctor will rid and protect your food establishment from pest birds. Bird Doctor will carefully inspect your property and provide you with a detailed report of the findings and suggest a permanent treatment plan.

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY FIRST PEST CONTROL SERVICE VISITS? (INTERIOR)
Common preparations include; cleaning the area to be treated, removing clutter, picking up pet food, and putting away open food.
All children’s toys and personal items should be picked up from the floor and moved outside of the treatment area.
It is recommended that all windows be closed prior to arrival.
People and pets must be out of treatment areas until the products have dried after the treatment. Some treatments may require additional, more specific, preparations. These will be communicated with you in advance of your service.
WILL TREATMENT AFFECT MY GARDEN?
If you have a garden, merely advise the technician of the location of any edible plants when they arrive. They will avoid treating near the garden.
Many of our materials may be safe when applied up to the dripline of the plants (the area the plant would drip on when wet). We will however implement a larger buffer than is required to further help protect your safety.
I HAVE A FISHPOND; CAN THE TREATMENTS NEGATIVELY AFFECT THE POND OR FISH?
Our technicians are careful to avoid sensitive areas, such as ponds, during treatments.
I HAVE A POOL; CAN THE TREATMENTS NEGATIVELY AFFECT THE POOL?
It will not affect your pool. Viking has carefully selected only the best materials with our primary concern being the safety of your family, pets as well as the environment. These materials are then carefully applied by our highly trained pest management professionals in a manner that all but eliminates contact with non-target treatment sites like pools and other sensitive environments.
WHAT SAFETY PROCEDURES MUST I FOLLOW AFTER TREATMENT?
Always consult your service report for product-specific precautionary requirements; these are emailed to you upon completion of the treatment.
Avoid all treated surfaces until dry. Once most materials have dried, they pose little risk and you may proceed as you normally would with your daily life.
Your technician will discuss any necessary safety precautions with you at the time of service.
I HAVE PETS, ARE YOUR TREATMENTS PET-FRIENDLY?
Viking’s certified technicians care about you, your family, and your pets. Please inform your service technician you have pets and s/he will take the necessary precautions.
Our programs are designed around people with pets and children in mind. Our products are carefully selected to minimize any effect on your family, pets or the environment.
Viking Pest also offers an Organic Pest control program that offers a range of non-pesticide treatment options.

I NOTICED MORE BUGS THAN USUAL AFTER TREATMENT, WHY IS THAT?
It is common for insect activity to increase after successfully treating pest harborage locations because many of our products have a “flushing” effect design to eliminate the entire concern, not just what is being seen.
I AM SEEING ANTS IN BETWEEN MY SERVICE VISITS; WHAT CAN I DO IN THE MEANTIME?
Use a napkin or paper towel to kill the ants.
Once removed from the location/countertop/window, utilize an appropriate cleaning solution to clean away the trail to try and remove the pheromones the ants were trailing upon.
Do NOT use any type of pesticide product as it may cause budding in some ant species which would make the issue worse or it may contaminate baits or non-repellant products we may have applied.
