Pest Control During Covid-19 / Coronavirus Pandemic
This article looks at the importance of pest control in maintaining public health and food safety during the Covid-19 pandemic.
This week the government recognised the importance of pest management professionals by confirming our sector as being an essential service and giving us key worker status. During these trying times it is essential that pest control professionals keep doing what we do best and that is eradicating pest infestations that can have a huge impact on our communities physical and mental health.
We have seen a big increase in the sightings of rats and mice by our customers and left unchecked, these infestations can rapidly increase. With the onset of warmer weather, insect pests such as fleas, bed bugs and cockroaches become more prevalent and requires a professional service to effectively deal with these infestations.
The food industry is under massive pressure to manufacture, process and distribute food during this pandemic. This means a continued high standard of food safety to ensure the food we eat is of the highest quality. Pest control ensures that throughout this process, the risk of pest contamination is kept to an absolute minimum.
