PIC: Diana Arehart

A complaint was filed a customer complaining Mouse/Rat droppings.
* Spoke with general manager (PIC) Diana Arehart concerning the complaint. After observing the report from ECOLAPs on 6/10/11, it was obvious that there was a problem of Rat droppings. Exterminator report mentioned that they caught numerous Mouse in that visit.
The PIC report, due to construction, it has been doors left open.
After inspection, observed a lot of Mouse droppings in a various locations such as:
* under the prep food area
* duck area
It is not exterminator's responsibility to get under control, but it is the responsibility of the general manager and the PIC to take care the pest problem.
* Observed some areas in the facility needs to be repaired.
* Observed areas in the facility needs to be cleaned to minimize the Mouse feeding.
Note: Will call to PCO operator to investigate the infestation of pest and possible solutions.

Aug 16, 2011

After investigating the complaint it was not found any sign of rats or mouse droppings and urine trails. But the manager who is also the person in charge told that there was a rodent’s problem before but since using twice a exterminators seems that the mouse movements slows down. It was conducted to investigate from the building exterior to the interior and not located any visible activity sign of mouse and rats.
It was suggested to eliminate all the food droppings and do the clean-up after hours.
Avoid any entry holes and specifically need to seal weather thresholds and stripping at the back door.
Clean and remove the dumpster’s food spill around.
Avoid any open package in the dry food storage area.
Increase exterminator frequency until the problem resolved.
The complaint is closed.

Sep 2, 2011

After talking to PIC she told me that they have been trying to control the activity of rodents and had been applying all the possible way to minimize the rodent infestation. Ecolab pest is doing their best to reduce the activity of rodent on monthly bases. See the attached documents for the facility pest control dates.
