Food shops are particularly at risk from Pests inc Rats, Mice, Cockroaches, Flies & Mice. Where there is human food stored, pests will endeavour to eat it. In these circumstances internal & external measures need to be put in place. Environmental Health love to do random unannounced spot checks on food shops. Your overall star ratings are all about public health and compliance, Pest Control is part of this. Environmental Heath will ask you straight away to see your Pest Control folder and reports to see how compliant your premises are.
