Climate Effects: An Environmental Risk for Businesses in Bandung?

Weather in Bandung on average are generally high, with rainy season typically during the early part of the year from January to April and last quarter of the year. The warmer and drier periods are usually in 3rd quarter of August and September. The subtropical highland climate in Bandung is influenced by the mountain climate which generally brings the cool and humid atmosphere with a high probability of rainfall throughout the year. This makes climate in Bandung relatively cooler than most of the Indonesia cities.

How these climate changes influence environmental problems such as pest risks?

Most pest and pathogens thrive well in either hot or wet climates! For example, ants prefer damp and moist areas, whereas cockroaches are often found in hot and humid areas. Particularly for mosquitoes, the larvae breed in stagnant water (usually resulting from a rainfall), which pose high risks of causing vector-borne diseases, such as Dengue Fever and Zika virus.

These pests are also commonly found particularly in a food processing or industrial and manufacturing industry, and for these businesses, zero-tolerance policy to pest is a top priority. In fact, 60% of food processing industry in West Java is located in several sub-districts in the western Bandung such as Cicalengka, Rancaekek and Majalaya, which means climate effects are impacting quite a big portion of businesses in Bandung.

Cockroaches are known as disgusting insects that prefer to nest in damp, dirty and dark places. During the rainy season when the air temperatures are colder, cockroaches move to warmer places for breeding. No only Cockroaches are highly disregarded in a food processing factory because of its fondness to contaminate foods with their carrying germs and bacteria on its body. Thus there is important to exterminating cockroach to avoid their presence in the food processing factory. There are preventive and protecting solutions to control cockroach infestation.

Besides cockroaches, rodents are another common pest that post serious threat to a food processing environment.   Similarly, they dislike cold climate. Often found in warehouses and stores within a food processing plant, rodents breed often during spring and fall climates and decline in reproduction during summer heat climate. Rodents feed on nearly any type of food, which potentially is frequently present in a food processing environment, including cereal, meat, nuts, fruits and more essentially, water! Because, they are agile and can squeeze in as tiny as 1 cm gap, a plant with various entry points is subjected to rodent infestation. Find out how pest proofing to deny entries for these rodents and trapping them at high risk areas can help control the infestation level.

Pest control in a food processing business can be more complex due to its large scale environment and risk nature. Integrated solutions and professional recommendations from pest control services are critical to ensure your business receive quality service support.

Can Your Hotel Business Create an Unforgettable Staying Experience for Your Guest?

Bandung is the biggest metropolitan city that is located in the heart of West Java Island. With a population of 2.5 million, it is not surprising that Bandung is recognized as the third largest city in Indonesia after Jakarta and Surabaya. Because of its geographic location and outstanding panoramic view, Bandung attracts visitors locally and internationally. As of 2015, Bandung has received more than 6 million arrivals which increase the demands for hotel occupancy.

This means an increase in competition among hoteliers, whereby hotel owners have to enhance service quality, comfort, safety and sanitation for the hotel guest. As the top priority in delivering customer satisfaction and creating an unforgettable staying experience for their guests, there are various key factors to focus and sustain.

Sanitation problem relating closely with common pest threats are often present in a hotel. Hotel lobby for instance, is considered as one of the highest traffic area and with its various multiple proofs of entries; it is a high risks area against common pests, such as rodents, cockroach, flies and mosquitoes. Without keeping pest infestation at bay, it could potentially create negative first impression among guests, and impact occupancy rate or brand image in the long term. There are various rodent control measures and cockroach prevent solutions in place, to prevent damaging the positive first impression, starting from the lobby.

Food safety is even more important where hotel management would not wish to perform service recovery or financial reimbursement relating to food poisoning incident. Restaurants and kitchens is one area where food is stored, processed, serve and disposed. Because pests, particularly ants, cockroaches and rodents are attracted to food source, water, garbage, it is a common breeding area, which increases the risks of food contamination. There are various useful prevention and housekeeping tips to educate the kitchen staffs, such as:

  • Ensure garbage bins are covered with lids
  • Dispose all waste regularly
  • Store unused food ingredients in sealed container or chiller
  • Wipe all spills and food crumbs on the surfaces
  • Do not clutter the kitchen food shelves
  • Seal cracks and crevices

Hotel guest room is not just a resting corner for guests, but a nesting area for bed bugs! Easily found in bed frames, bed sheets, blanket, rug to furniture textile material within the hotel guest rooms, it is transported from guests to guest, luggage and room to rooms. Guests could either bring these bugs from previous stay, or transport bugs to another! These cross-infestations are typically common within the hotel industry. There are training programmes available to help housekeepers identify potential bed bug signs such as dark black stains, sweet sickly scent and blood spots known as “facecal pellets”. As bed bug infestation could full grown in 10 weeks and can lay between 200 to 500 eggs in a lifetime at 1 time, it is important to ensure bed bug infestation is addressed immediately. A 10-day programme is recommended to eliminate the bed bugs and integrated with inspection, monitoring, education and training.
