Rats may be a challenging problem all year long. However, it is crucial for food establishments to have an effective rat control strategy in place. Food and water that are contaminated by rat fur or excrement may pose serious health risks when consumed. Diseases transmitted by rats include salmonellosis, rat bite fever and murine typhus.
Rat infestations may lead to serious implications for the business including a negative impact on the reputation of the business, negative media coverage, enforcement actions from the National Environment Agency (NEA) and even the suspension of license.
The key strategy in rat management is to eliminate areas of harbourages as well as food and water sources for rats. Practise proper refuse management, adopt good housekeeping habits and put in place effective pest control for rats to prevent infestations in your premises.
