Bed Bugs Take Out New York Trains

Bed Bugs Take Out New York Trains

Three trains on the New York City N line have been taken out of service this week due to bedbugs. Discovered in the seat cushions of the cabs, which are used primarily by conductors and motormen, the bugs are currently being questioned by officials for fare evasion. For the rest of the passengers, they have been forced to find other means of travel, and have all been diagnosed with a case of the heebie-jeebies since Tuesday’s announcement.

In all seriousness, the situation adds concern to the mounting hysteria around New York’s bedbug situation, and pest control NYC. Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokesman Adam Lisberg is quoted in the New York Daily news saying “When we found them, we exterminated them.” Comforting to hear the powers that be are doing something about it, but what can the good people of New York City do to keep themselves and their families safe?

First of all, you should know that bedbugs are relatively harmless, as far as pests go. That said, if they get into your home, getting rid of them can be difficult. And they are a nuisance. Bedbugs are small bugs, visible to the naked eye, but definitely at the squinty-eyed end of the visible spectrum. Adults who have fed tend to be more visible as they fill up with blood and become red in color.

The way most people discover they have bedbugs is by finding little red bite-marks on their body. Bedbugs are very stealthy, and can take their requisite blood-meal without disturbing you, usually while you are sleeping. While most people show little reddish dots on their skin from bites, people react in different ways. Some have no reaction at all. Others can swell considerably. In any case, the bites are harmless. Bedbugs have not been reported to carry disease.

The other way you can find them is to search your mattresses and furniture cushions. They like warmth, and will huddle together in corners, under places where furniture piping and seams create hiding places.

The third place you may find bedbugs or evidence of this pest is around baseboards. As with your mattress or furniture, you may find actual bugs, but you may also find brown spots, droppings, or even eggs. You may even find dead bugs in any of the places listed so far. All of these count as bedbug sightings.

So what can you do if you find they’ve invaded your home? First things first, don’t take these pest on yourself. While early detection is key, attempting to use pest control methods yourself could be harmful. Plus you may find the problem gets worse despite your efforts. Even for a seasoned exterminator it will need more than one sweep to rid your home of these little buggers. They didn’t make it through near-extermination twenty years ago, cross the ocean, and hike home with you on the N line just to be swept aside. Call a professional.
There are more than 1000-options for pest control in New York City alone.

Three Easy Steps to Manage Summer Flies

Three Easy Steps to Manage Summer Flies

Excuse me, there’s a fly in my review. Summer is upon us, and nature is hard at work to increase her armies, which means you could see some flies at work. The reality is you don’t want them, and neither do your customers, but in this world of online reviews you may wear them like a tattoo if you don’t control them. Negative reviews don’t wash away. But let’s forget about the casual reviewer for a minute; what about the guy with the clipboard? He can potentially knock off 28-violation points if he finds a fly concern. That could put you in a much more concerning spot. Of course you have a restaurant pest control plan, you’ve hired a commercial exterminator, but you need to know what to do between visits. There are three main areas on which to focus your efforts knocking down these would-be “tattoos,” starting with your inspection and cleaning process, but could include some self-treatment, and may also warrant the use of lights.

Check every day. To treat any challenge area you have to first create a schedule of inspection, which should be daily. So should be the treatment schedule if warranted. The areas of concern aren’t just your drains, but you should start with the drains, and you should include anywhere that moisture collects: puddles, refuse, and business-specific areas. Your inspection process should go beyond just visually checking, as they may be hatching out of sight, down the drain, and flying out when you aren’t looking. To catch them put some tape over the drain with some holes. If you find flies on the sticky part of the tape you have a hatchery down there. If you find flies, then they are likely elsewhere, so check in crawl spaces and anywhere else that isn’t trafficked regularly. You don’t want to knock them down in one area only to find them breeding elsewhere.

Stop using bleach. It’s not doing what you think and is probably causing more harm to the environment than anything. If you find you have an area that is hatching flies, start with making sure it’s clean from obvious debris, flush it well with hot water and then go deeper. Apply a bio enzyme application and follow up with another cleaning, making sure that the drain, and any covers or grates are also clean. Retest the drain the next day to make sure it worked. You can knock down adult flies with a household spray but that will not stop the source of the problem as well as sniffing out their breeding grounds. For fruit flies you will have to also check your food, especially fruit, where they might be multiplying. Once you remove or cover the food you should see them stop multiplying. The next question of course, is what do you do about the adults, the ones who have already hatched, and are flying about?

Put down the fly-swatter. A more elegant way of dealing with adult flies is by giving them something to fly into… a light at the end of the tunnel if you will. And no we aren’t talking about your parents backyard bug-zapper. A good insect light will not only silently draw the attention of your unwanted guests, it will trap them, cleanly removing them and making it easy for you to dispose of them. You can go with either the covered sort of light, for areas where you don’t want your customers to see dead flies, or the you can use the sort that makes it easy to see trapped flies at a glance. In either case don’t get caught chasing them with a swatter. The last thing you want to do is squish bugs anywhere in your business. That’ll earn you a review-tattoo as fast as anything.

Good news is your customers are on your side even if it doesn’t feel like it. They want you to be the best. They want you to be fly-free and they may even tell others about how clean you are if the rest of their experience is good. The guy with the clipboard though? We don’t know what designs he has on your inspection. Best to keep him at bay by running an effective inspection and cleaning process until the pros can reset the stage. No bad reviews. No bad tattoos. And no bad news. You’ve got this. That’s why you’re the one in charge.

How to Achieve an “A” Grade: Rodent Control and Fly Prevention in NYC Restaurants

How to Achieve an "A" Grade: Rodent Control and Fly Prevention in NYC Restaurants

Our blog series focusing on site-specific applications for Integrated Pest Management for businesses has covered a range of topics from bed bug control for hotels, to rodent control, and most recently pest management strategies for food processing facilities. As we continue we will keep in line with the food safety theme in this installment covering pest control and New York commercial fly control, and specifically how to achieve an A Grade from the NYC Department of Health using IPM principles.

“A” Is The ONLY Passing Grade In Restaurants

It’s been in the news lately, with high profile restaurants getting slammed with less than desirable Department of Health ratings in regards to cleanliness and food safety. No one wants to eat at a restaurant with a “B”, much less a “C” and there is no worse stigma for a restaurant than poor sanitation grade glaring in the front window. For any restaurant, high profile or not, the costs can be devastating in terms of reputation and public perception, and those losses may never be recouped. Obviously it is in the interest of every restaurant operator to maintain the highest standards when it comes to insect control, rodent control and fly prevention, as they are part of the main criteria for maintaining the “A” grade.

What Determines The Grade?

Every restaurant in New York City is subject to an unannounced inspection once a year. During these inspections restaurants are audited based on a scale of “critical” and “general” violations. A restaurant receiving more than 13 points on the scale will lose its “A” rating until it can prove it has made the proper corrections. Some of the most damaging critical violations are those involving the presence of pests because they denote an overall weakness in a restaurant’s ability to maintain basic sanitation, and are based on the visible numbers of pests, or evidence of pests. Among these critical violations are the evidence of rodents or live rodents present in facility’s food and/or non-food areas, live roaches present in facility’s food and/or non-food areas, and filth flies or food/refuse/sewage-associated (FRSA) flies in facility’s food and/or non-food areas. Non-critical violations in regards to pest management include the facility not being vermin proof or having harborage or conditions conducive to attracting vermin to the premises and/or allowing vermin to exist. Basically every instance of violation inspectors find will denote a point or more depending on the severity of the problem, for example the number of flies, rodent droppings, etc. The greater the number of flies for example, the more points lost. Needless to say, the presence of any pest in the restaurant can threaten the “A” grade.

Passing the Grade

According to NYC Health’s Guide for Food Service Operators, one of the main steps restaurants need to take in receiving an “A” includes contracting a licensed pest control professional. With this in mind, how does RJS work with its restaurant clients to maintain their “A”? RJS’s Integrated Pest Management strategies provide our clients with an edge since the multi-level approach we use covers everything from training restaurant staff, identifying and eliminating harborage and entry points, to ongoing monitoring programs. Along with this we recommend installing products like Xcluder door sweeps to insure roaches and rodents are unable to enter under doors for example. In NYC commercial fly control for restaurants is a major concern, especially in spring and summer when fly populations can increase to critical violation levels overnight. RJS takes preventative measure like installing BASF Vector fly lights in our client’s properties to ensure fly populations are kept at a minimum. Caulking and sealing entry points, cracks, and harborage areas is also key to insuring our client’s restaurants remain as pest free as possible. In addition to the physical prevention we use staff training to help workers identify and resolve problems such as uncovered garbage, or food, and to identify and monitor the presence of pests. Following RJS’s comprehensive restaurant pest control programs will give our clients the best chance at getting the “A” Grade because we understand the criteria and how to execute a plan that will insure that you are in compliance.

Looking forward to our next blog installment were we will cover how RJS views the future of pest control in a post entitled: “How Technology is Revolutionizing The Pest Control Industry”.

NYC Restaurant Grading System Explained

NYC Restaurant Grading System Explained

The New York City letter-grade restaurant system has been implemented in 2010 by the Department of Health.

For any restaurant, high profile or not, the costs of poor inspection results can be devastating in terms of reputation and public perception, and those losses may never be recouped. Obviously it is in the interest of every restaurant operator to maintain the highest standards when it comes to insect control, rodent control and fly prevention, as they are part of the main criteria for receiving the “A” grade.

Best Fly Control Products For Businesses

Best Fly Control Products For Businesses

Flies are a nuisance, they can potentially jeopardize your business and pose serious health risks to humans and animals alike.

Ensuring that your business is clean is the first and most important step in fly control. In this blog post we will review the best sanitation methods and products that can help prevent infestations and will keep the flies away from your business.

1. Floor Fans/Air Movers

Standing water in your property provides flies with areas to breed and harbor, so you can greatly reduce these breeding points through the use of one or several of these devices.

2. Probiotic Cleaning Solutions

In addition to standing water, build up of food, grease and other organic material can result in fly activity. This is why the second type of product we recommend is a Probiotic Cleaning Solution. Rather then bleach, which merely washes over such build up, probiotic cleaners use special enzymes to neutralize odor and actually break it down.

3. Commercial Insect Light Traps

For 24/7 control of flies, the final type of product we recommend is a Commercial Insect Light Trap. There are two types of these traps. One that utilizes glue boards and can be used in commercial kitchens, and another, that electrocutes flies on contact. We recommend using a combination of both types of traps for the most effective fly control program possible.

Strategies for Bed Bug Pest Control in Hotel Properties

Strategies for Bed Bug Pest Control in Hotel Properties

So far we have covered the basics of Integrated Pest Management and how RJS uses these strategies in the broad sense, as well as specifically in describing the methodology in our rodent control programs. Continuing on, we now tackle one of the most talked about pest related issues of the day, pest control for bed bugs. Much like our earlier posts, we will outline here how IPM is used effectively in prevention, detection, and elimination efforts in commercial settings, specifically in hotel pest control.

Bed Bugs Are Everywhere!

Over the past decade New York, and the world has seen a huge resurgence in the incidence and reporting of bed bug cases. Once unheard of, bed bug cases are now commonplace, with infestations being treated in residences and businesses alike. Ask any NYC bed bug exterminator and they will tell you that they are very busy. With 99.6% of pest control services reporting bed bug cases in 2013, it’s clear to see that the bed bug is back and people are taking notice. Bed bug forums and reporting websites are now common and nothing can spell disaster for hotels and other businesses like the reputation for having a bed bug problem. Because bed bugs are so prevalent and can spread so quickly, it is essential for hotels and other businesses to have effective strategies in place to protect their customers. RJS understands this and takes a detailed Integrated Pest Management approach, insuring that our client’s reputations and businesses are protected in the most effective ways possible.

Bed Bug Strategies

So what are the most effective ways to counter act the spread of bed bugs into your place of business? Well, in keeping with our IPM model, RJS takes a multi-leveled approach to dealing with the particularly difficult problem of bed bug control. This approach starts with education, and leads into prevention, documentation and ultimately, remediation and eradication of bed bugs.

1. Education

The education of staff is top priority in bed bug prevention. Teaching your staff to follow best practices in identifying and preventing problems before they grow is your best strategy in any hotel pest control effort, especially when it comes to bed bugs. Because any guest can be a vector for carrying bed bugs into your business, your staff must be vigilant and aware of any signs of bed bugs in order to prevent infestations. RJS recommends education seminars for hotel staff be held two to four times a year. These sessions will keep staff aware and up to date with how to identify, prevent and treat bed bug incidences. The staff is your first line of defense in hotel pest control.

2. Prevention

Once the staff is educated on the topic of bud bugs the next crucial step is prevention. If bed bugs gain a foothold they can be particularly difficult to eradicate because of their resistance most approved chemical controls, the ability to harbor in a variety of hard to reach areas, and the fact that they breed and spread quickly. Preventing the bud bug’s ability to harbor is key in these efforts. Using sealed mattress and pillow casements such as Protect-A-Bed are essential here. Identifying the presence of bed bugs early can mean the difference between simple single site remediation treatments versus site wide infestation and intensive eradication efforts. Because of this, RJS partners with industry leaders like Carl Masicott founder of Advanced K-9 Detectives , the first bedbug canine scent detection company in the United States. We recommend frequent canine hotel site inspections along with the use of interceptor devices that collect bed bugs at the base of bed and chair legs in order to give our clients an edge in detection and prevention.

3. Documentation

Along with and preventative monitoring and maintenance practices, keeping careful logs and following standard operating procedures for bed bug complaints is also key in an effective prevention and treatment effort. Since early detection and eradication is so essential in preventing infiltration and spread of bed bugs, documentation is of utmost importance. Proper documentation and reporting on complaints, inspections, treatments and room history means that we can track the occurrence and spread of bed bugs onsite and effectively treat the problem and prevent their spread.

4. Remediation

Once preventative measures have been taken and documentation has been recorded, and the presence of bed bugs is confirmed, the next step is treatment. Bed bugs react to heat, so most treatments involve steam cleaning or heat treatments that effectively kill them where they harbor. Although bed bugs are particularly resistant to most chemical treatments and fumigation efforts, some low impact chemical treatments such as Sterifab have proven effective, so a combination of heat and chemical treatments are used in bed bug extermination efforts. Once a careful system of treatment has taken place, preventative and documentation efforts should be continued to ensure the effectiveness of treatment ongoing.

Education, prevention, documentation and remediation and RJS’s continued commitment to the Integrated Pest Management philosophy provides our customers with the best advantage possible in our efforts to control bed bugs. Look for more on how we use IPM to make businesses cleaner, safer and more customer-friendly in our next blog, RJS’s Integrated Pest Management Practices in Commercial Food Processing Sites.

How To Prevent A Rat Infestation On Your Block in Brooklyn?

How To Prevent A Rat Infestation On Your Block in Brooklyn?

Despite everything the city and their building management have tried, a serious rat problem isn’t going away from Brooklyn. In addition to destroying property and equipment, mice and rats can contaminate food and spread disease through their urine and droppings.

Rat control is everyone’s responsibility. Without continuing sanitation and good housekeeping practices on your block, the rats will keep reoccurring, even after the best rat extermination programs. That’s why it’s important that everyone in your community works together to prevent rat infestation; residents, local business owners, schools and local stores. Here are some tips from RJS Pest Management, Brooklyn Exterminator, on how to become your neighborhood’s leader and tackle the rat problem, hands on, for the best long-term results.

1. Organize Your Block and Hold a Meeting on The Rat Infestation Problem

Go from door to door and get your neighbors signed up and committed to combating the infestation and attend a meeting on the problem. Be prepared for a large turn up. If you have a rat problem, all your neighbors have it too!

2. Appoint a Rat Inspector on Your Block. Send Them to the “Rat Academy” Meeting.

The city hosts half-day trainings that cover all the basics and best practices of pest management — and they’re free. Hosted by the Department of Health, the trainings are geared towards teaching homeowners, building staff and residents how to combat rat infestations using a variety of strategies. If you and your neighbors want to attend, just gather a minimum of 20 people and ask the DOH to host one for you. Or, you can join an academy that’s already scheduled. Those interested in a deeper dive into rat management can attend a free three-day course, complete with homework and field trips, also free and sponsored by the city.

To sign up for either option, send an email to ratportal@health.nyc.gov or call 311.

3. Distribute Educational Materials About Rat Extermination

Education is an important first step. If there are no takers for the ‘Rat Academy’, you can contact the Department of Health and ask them to send you some free leaflets that cover best practices for rat extermination. Distribute them around your block and educate your neighburs about the best rodent prevention practives.

  • Rats can survive on food grease alone, so clean up grease with a bleach-and-water solution.
  • Rats can get inside a space the size of a quarter, so sealing up holes outside the property is essential.
  • Ivy and overgrown brush create ideal conditions for rats to dig under them and create burrows in the ground.

For more information or to get the official NY city rat extermination leaflet, go here.

4. Make Sure Your Block Uses The Right Trash Cans

Make sure your building is using rodent proof metal trash cans with tight-fitting covers or at least put garbage out closer to the actual pickup time. Another good way to make sure your trash is not attracting any rats is to remove the organic waste — such as uneaten meat, stale bread, tea bags, banana peels or any leftover food.

Within the past 12 months, the Department of Sanitation launched a pilot program for organics collection in The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island. In addition, public schools and nonprofit organizations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Staten Island and Queens have participated. Participants separate organic waste and put it in sealed plastic bins for separate pickup by the Department of Sanitation. Check whether your block is within a pilot area here .

5. Finding a good NYC Exterminator

Call a pest management professional as soon as possible. The quicker you act, the smaller the problem and the easier the treatment. A licensed professional must do baiting to rid rats.

RJS Pest Management, a family run, commercial rodent control company that serves all five boroughs including Brooklyn, says, “You want a reputable company, somebody that has credentials. Look for the Quality Pro designation–only about 350-400 companies across U.S. have it and it requires everything from training to background checks, to physicals for workers.

You also want a company with licensed workers that is registered with the state and you can check on the company you want to hire (or that your landlord has hired) by calling (718) 482-4994.

Pest Management Strategies for Food Processing

Pest Management Strategies for Food Processing

As we continue on with our blog series on RJS’s Integrated Pest Management approach to pest control, we will begin to look more at site-specific applications as they pertain to businesses that we specialize in protecting. We have touched on this with regard to hotels and bed bugs in out last post, as well in previous posts mentioning general practices using specific business sites as examples. In this installment we will cover RJS’s strategies and practices for IPM pest control for commercial food properties.

Everyone Eats!

Let’s face it; one of the most important things in all of our lives is food and food safety. Making sure that the food you eat is clean and safe is at the top of anyone’s list of life’s necessities. That’s why it is so important to have safeguards in place at all levels of the supply chain to ensure public safety. One oversight or incident can mean disaster for a food producer as well as for the public at large. RJS works diligently with commercial food facilities as well as third party inspection and certification services to insure the utmost in care is taken when creating a program for food processing pest control. So what are the steps for implementing an integrated pest management program in commercial food facilities?

1. Compliance with 3rd Party Inspection Standards

There are several local, national, and international inspection, auditing and certification authorities that serve the food service and processing industries. RJS finds such third party programs essential to any program we put in place. By working with and following guidelines put in place by respected authorities such as AIB International, RJS can insure that our clients are getting the most comprehensive, cutting edge industry standard audits and assessments to aid us in our efforts in food safety pest control.

2. Choosing the right pest control …

RJS Implements its integrated pest management programs in commercial food facilities by following the standards and practices recommended by third party authorities and works them into the training and certifications required for our on-site technicians. In addition RJS’s techs are trained and certified to the highest standards such as QualityPro Food Protection, as well as New York State’s required 7A and 7F licenses for structural and rodent control, and food processing respectively. By taking such a comprehensive approach to training, education, and certification we can insure that our clients and community will have the safest food possible and have the ability to choose the right course of action for their facilities.

3. Implementation

Clients such as, Aladdin Bakers, Seviroli Foods and Morrison’s Pastry rely on us to maintain their facilities at the highest standards possible. We use our qualifications to create effective systems of documentation, reporting and analysis to assess their properties and create very effective programs for safeguarding them in choosing the right pest control strategies. RJS works closely with our client’s staff to insure they are aware of and understand all of our procedures and techniques so that every detail is covered. Concepts such as HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) are used as preventative tools in this regard. HAACP pest control programs use scientific models to analyze points of vulnerability in the chain of processing, and allow us to define and prevent issues before they become problems. Working closely with the staff who maintains and operates food-processing systems is essential to this process. We can then effectively pinpoint problem areas and provide the safest and most effective solutions to maintaining a pest free environment. These and other controls and methods are what insure the food our clients produce will be safe.

Looking forward to upcoming blog installments we will cover how RJS deals with specific pests common to New York area businesses using IPM methods. Next post’s topic: Pest Control & Fly Prevention for NYC Restaurants: How to Achieve an “A” Grade
