Professional Pest Control For Your Hotel

From five star premium hotels to minimalist hostels or even Airbnb rentals, the hospitality industry offers a particularly inviting environment to pests looking for food, water, and shelter. Bed bugs, cockroaches, rats, and mice are also common problems for the hospitality sector.

How Orkin Canada Provides Professional Pest Control For The Hotels And Other Hospitality Lodgings

Orkin Canada offers industry leading expertise within the hospitality industry. Our wealth of knowledge and experience is both proven and effective to deal with any pest issue within the hospitality industry. When dealing with pests in your hotel, hostel or Airbnb,  your Orkin Canada pest control professional will create a customised treatment plan that is tailored to meet your needs.

Step 1: Assess

Your Orkin Canada technician will start the pest control program by performing a thorough inspection of your business. These areas can include employee living quarters, lunch rooms/cafeterias, health/spa facilities, washroom facilities and the exterior of your property.

When your hospitality pest control specialist is finished inspecting the property, you will receive a thorough report that outlines problem areas, as well as a recommended plan of action to protect your lodgings against any pest invasion.

Watch as one of Orkin Canada’s bed bug detection dogs sniffs out any potential bed bugs during this training exercise.

Step 2: Implement

If your Orkin Canada technician finds a pest infestation within your hotel, they will implement a treatment plan designed to effectively control any on-site pest populations. Eco-friendly treatment methods are used based on the principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to protect your guests and employees.

Once the treatment plan has been implemented, your Orkin Canada technician ensures that expert care is taken to keep your hotel or Airbnb space free of pests.

Step 3: Monitor

Once your hospitality pest control expert has implemented a treatment solution, they will monitor the program’s effectiveness by monitoring the pest activity on-site and adjusting the pest control program as necessary to ensure that your pest issue is effectively controlled. Monitoring helps to prevent pests from establishing themselves on your property.

Common Pests In The Hospitality Industry

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are attracted to the carbon dioxide and warmth that humans emit, which makes them particularly drawn to guests staying in hotels, Airbnbs rentals or other hospitality lodgings. At night, they will feed on the blood of your sleeping guests. By morning, your guests will be distressed and your reputation ruined.

Although bed bugs may cause itchy, irritating bites, they are not known to spread diseases. Nonetheless, the aggravating presence of bed bugs is a major cause of financial injury to hotels and often requires extensive extermination measures.


Cockroaches are most likely to infest hotel kitchens, restaurants, and bars, as they scavenge for any kind of food they can find. Since these insects are filthy, their presence can lead to widespread contamination of food which is otherwise meant for human consumption.

Once infestations are established, cockroaches can aggravate asthma or cause allergic reactions among guests with their faeces and saliva. Additionally, they have been known to spread diseases such as salmonella, typhoid fever, and dysentery.

Rats And Mice

Rats and mice looking for food and a warm place to nest cause widespread destruction in hotels, gnawing through walls, wire, and insulation, potentially leading to power outages, electrical fires, structural damage, and affecting the aesthetic appeal of buildings.

In hotel kitchens, rodents also contaminate entire stores of food with their urine and faeces, posing serious health risks to hotel guests. Rats and mice can carry and transmit pathogens like salmonella, hantavirus, leptospirosis, tularemia and hemorrhagic fever.

Bad reviews on social media can spread like wildfire, so even a suspicion of pests can devastate your business. As a result, it may be tempting to try to deal with a pest infestation yourself, so as not to draw attention it.

But do-it-yourself solutions are aimed at small-scale infestations or homes, and won’t stop the pests returning. You need a professional pest control service, not only to remove the pests, but to create an integrated pest management program for your staff to keep pests away for good.

Orkin Canada provides coast to coast coverage. Whether your hotel, motel or other lodgings is located in Victoria, Whistler, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal or even Charlottetown, you can trust the experts at Orkin Canada to keep your hospitality business protected against pests. For professional pest control you can trust within the hospitality industry, contact Orkin Canada today!
