Being Aware of Pest Control
Pest infestation is commonplace and affects people and properties daily. Pests can be either a nuisance or pose a major operational risk to your business. Aside from the inconvenience, an infestation can have a major impact, not just on your bottom line but also on your reputation.
Why is Pest Control so important?
Pests don’t discriminate: any size of business, operating in any type of industry can be vulnerable. But in the food industry you have to be more vigilant. Pests mean dirt, damage and disease. Ultimately they cost you money! Birds, insects and rodents not only carry bacteria but they can also cause damage to your premises. Rats and mice for example, are known to gnaw through not just dried goods but also insulation, electrical cables and even pipes!
Food Hygiene Regulations
As the restaurant Manager or Owner, the Food Safety Act, 1990 and the Food Hygiene (General) Regulations 1995, insists that food premises are kept as pest free as is practicable. Failure to do so can result in a fine (up to £20,000 for each offence) or even a prison sentence for serious offences. And prosecutions make headlines! Bad press leads to loss of custom and loss of business.
Working with a specialist will often stop an infestation before it takes hold saving both time and money in the long term.
