Quality pest control is a must in food businesses such as catering, food production, food retail, and food preparation, whether they are operating within business establishments or from home.
Pests can infest your food and cause disease if they get into your premises. Common pests like rats, mice, and cockroaches can transmit viruses and bacteria to food and surfaces they come in contact with.
Pest infestations can damage your reputation and your products. Customers won't be able to patronize your business if they know about your pest problems. It is vital that you take all steps to stop pests entering your business.
Get involved: Pests should not be allowed to enter your home. Instead of waiting for them to arrive, you must do everything possible to prevent them from entering. Pest prevention is more cost-effective and economical if you start outside the building. Remove any items that could attract pests and inspect your premises regularly for signs of infestation.
Hire pest controllers: A contractor or company that offers a variety of services is the best way to arrange for pest control contracts. A recognized trade or pest control association should register your chosen company. Contractors should be able tell you about potential problems and then carry out the work. Then report back the results.
