Ecolab Pest expert exterminating a commercial kitchen

Commercial Cockroach Control

Cockroaches are pests that spread bacteria such as E.coli and Salmonella, impacting food safety and the health of your guests. In much of North America, the sight of a single cockroach by a health inspector could shut down a foodservice operation. What’s more, customers and employees see cockroaches as a sign of unsanitary conditions that can damage your reputation and hurt sales. As part of our Pest Elimination Program, Ecolab’s commercial cockroach extermination service will protect your business from cockroaches and keep them from coming back.

Proven Cockroach Elimination for Your Business

Cockroaches are associated with dirty, unsanitary environments. Stories of cockroach sightings and Health Department or FDA closures can spread quickly and cause a public relations nightmare—doing irreparable damage to your business and reputation.

At Ecolab, we consistently deliver proven protocols for commercial cockroach services that work quickly to rid your property of cockroaches and help prevent them from returning. Our process includes:

  • Thorough inspections by highly-trained service specialists
