The risks associated with pests in any food environment or premise is diverse – however, it’s important to note that these instances should never be taken lightly and Food Standard Regulations have zero tolerance to ignoring the problem.
So, whether you are responsible for a restaurant, takeaway, catering company or even a burger van, cafe or hotel, you should not take pest control provisions lightly.
Pest control procedures will involve pest proofing, for example filling gaps, managing food waste, inspection reports for stock arriving etc. Working closely with certified experts and the hire of pest control services will also be advised.
Effective pest management services or programmes will need to not only prevent the introduction of pests into your food environment but also manage the conditions that could encourage a pest presence or facilitate their survival.
- How often should pest control be done in a restaurant? It’s a good idea to have regularly scheduled pest control checks via a pest exterminator company, which will give you a better idea of timing. However, monthly and quarterly is advised.
- Do restaurants need a pest control contract? It is not a legal obligation, but it a legal requirement that you take control of potential infestations and manage pest control wisely.
- How can restaurants prevent pests? Block entry points and eliminate any open-source of food or water.
- What are the 3 methods of pest control? Completely depends on the type of infestation, heating, fumigation and bait traps are typically the most used.
