Mid-Atlantic entertainment venues whether they are a movie theater, a concert hall, or a broadway (or off-broadway) playhouse, face serious challenges when it comes to pests. Food crumbs, soda spills, and garbage attract insects and rodents. In some cases, ticketholders’ clothing or bags can even introduce pests to your seating. Since venues like these have multiple access points, food sources, and hiding places, an efficient integrated pest management program is essential for a successful pest control program in your building.
Entertainment venues provide near-perfect living conditions for cockroaches. Dark hiding places, spilled popcorn, and sticky splashes of soda or beer make roaches feel right at home. Since cockroaches also hang out in sewer pipes and dumpsters, they can transmit harmful pathogens to employees and patrons just by walking on surfaces. Cockroach sightings resulting in poor online reviews can also cause ticket sales to plummet.
Mice and rats enjoy many of the same conditions as cockroaches, making concert halls, cinemas, playhouses, and theaters a prime target for rodent infestations as well. Whether the pests are scurrying around behind screens or behind the curtain, gnawing on wires, or chewing on open and even unopened packaged snacks at the concession stand, widespread mouse or rat infestations can result in serious damage. There is also a very real disease risk due to the urine and droppings rats and mice leave behind.
Bed bugs can hitch a ride in on patrons’ clothing and spread easily to seating. The pests are also small enough to hide in upholstered seams, making them extremely difficult to spot on dark theater seating. Pest control and prevention are critical for entertainment venues and concert halls to avoid infestations and damaging reviews due to bed bug bites.
High-traffic public places that serve food and drinks will always attract pests. Both cockroaches and rodents can slip in through small cracks or just wander in through open doors, while bed bugs can come inside along with customers. Western Pest Services offers specific pest control solutions for buildings in the entertainment industry to address insect and rodent issues and help prevent new ones.
