Critical Controlling Pests Pest(s) rodents mice, Pest(s) flies, Harborage conditions N/A Present in facility, Not eliminated Bar: observed numerous small flies (fruit flies likely) at several bar areas (near the waste water drain for the beer tower spill trays and near the floor sink under the three compartment sink & glass washer). Trap flying adults with vinegar bait stations and/or fly paper (under the 3 comp. Sink & near the floor sink serving the beer tower spill trays--areas away from food, single service items and clean equipment--replace these traps as they become overloaded), keep the facility clean, dry and in good repair to eliminate wet debris and slime growth. Begin using a fly drain gel in your bar area drains to eliminate the slime growth in which the flies breed. Kitchen: observed mouse feces and urine on most items on the storage shelves (canned goods, shaker containers for spices, can of olive oil, single service/use items, etc. ). Mice spread disease and contaminate surfaces they urinate and defecate on while walking around in search of food and shelter.

Brewery: excessive mouse feces and urine stains were observed in most areas of this space (on floor among spilled grain under the grain auger loading hopper, in the storage area on the east end of the building (among pallets, beer processing equipment, electrical items), on/in bags of opened beer making ingredients, and storage shelves, and observed a live mouse jump out of a curled up bag of beer malt. Examine the exterior of the building and seal any openings to prevent the entry of mice, and remove any weeds or plants growing adjacent to the building. In addition to having staff perform inspections of the facility and keeping the food production and storage areas clean and dry, a pest control contractor is needed asap to provide bait stations on the exterior and interior areas of the facility to eradicate the mice, and inspect the building for additional mouse entry points to be sealed
Normal Temperature Measuring Devices Thermometer(s) refrigeration N/A Not provided Observed no air thermometer in a couple refrigerators. Ensure all of your coolers have accurate air thermometers in them

In addition to this new garage door, install an air curtain at this door to prevent pest entry when the door is open. Instruct employees to use a service door, not the overhead door for pedestrian traffic. Kitchen: provide a vinyl strip curtain or an air curtain at the door leading to the outside kitchen area to prevent the entry of flies.
