Pest control for restaurants

Pest Control for Restaurant, Bars and Cafes

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.

Restaurant Pest Control and Inspection Programmes

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.
