Bristol Food Hygiene & Pest Control
What Are Food Pests?
Food Pests are defined as:
An animal, insect or bird that contaminates or destroys food.
No matter how well many food premises are looked after they will in time attract unwanted guests. Some will come into the premises through doors and windows, while others will come in on customers, staff and inside deliveries - both inside the food and among the packaging. With the global food market on our door step much of the food we love comes from abroad as do the pests. What is required then, is vigilance and good house keeping practices. At WaspKill UK we have spent almost ten years teaching food safety courses to many hundreds of students from all areas of the food industry so when it comes to food safety and pest control, few can match our expertise. An interesting fact is that a single rat over the course of a year produce over 200kg of faeces and a staggering 50 litres or more of urine.
What Types Of Food Pests Are Dangerous?
Any food pest has the potential to contaminate or destroy food. Contamination occurs in a number of ways. Physical contamination is where the bodies, parts of bodies, pupae, cocoons, hairs, feathers or droppings etc get into food at any point in the pests life cycle. Microbiological contamination is where pests contaminate food with toxin forming or pathogenic bacteria, viruses, prions, fungi and parasites.
Also common is what we term, direct damage caused by consumption of the food either by rats and mice eating it or beetle larvae inside the food such as rice weevils and biscuit beetles eating it.
Once food is contaminated, it is said to be "unfit for human consumption" so has to be destroyed, costing you lots of money.
We understand how to stop food pests and this is where we can keep your business safe from prosecution or worse, closure.
What Diseases do Food Pests Carry and Spread?
Rats & Mice: leptospiroses, listeriosis, toxoplasmosis, tuberculoses, cholera and typhoid etc.
Flies: typhoid, dysentery, polio, salmonella, cholera, anthrax and even E-coli.
Cockroaches: cause allergies leading to respiratory disease.
Confused Flour Beetle: cancer forming compounds.
These are just a few examples, and the point is that you need to keep your customers safe and this means among other things, keeping the food safe from pests.

WaspKill UK - The Very Best Pest Control Extermination Advice and Solutions:
Bristol Pest Control. Getting rid of Wasps and other insects like Bumble Bees, Wasps and Rats is not as simple as many pesticide manufacturers will lead you to believe. The chemicals or poisons on offer in supermarkets and shops often have a fraction of the effect that is achieved through professional products and this means you are likely to get through many cans of treatment without actually achieving full control. As the only Bristol Pest Control exterminator offering a dedicated insect control service, we are able to deliver solutions that are guaranteed to work.
Environmental health services, are all about understanding the pests you are trying to eliminate or prevent so you can make the environment less conducive to them. The Wasp for example creates a wasp nest early in the year so if you wanted to control wasps in Bristol you would probably guess that checking for a new wasp nest in your loft in April and May would allow you to remove a wasp nest safely before it became too large. By understanding your pest, you are able to plan control in advance, before infestation occurs and the cost of elimination becomes high.
WaspKill UK are always here to help - so why not give us a call and put your trust in the experts.
