Pest Prevention

Pest Prevention

Although many people believe pests are attracted only to filthy and foul conditions, even the cleanest of home and business can have them.

Good hygiene is the first effective step to protect health and property.

Do not make you premises attractive to pests by giving them easy access to food.

  • Keep boxes and bags of food sealed and protected.
  • Store open food in plastic bags or containers e.g. cereal, sugar flour etc.
  • Do not leave pet food out.
  • Sweep up any food or liquid spills immediately.
  • Ensure rubbish bin lids are tightly sealed.

Food producers and outlets must adequately protect their premises from flies under The Food and Safety Act 1990 and associated regulations 1995 & 2004.
