Yes, especially if you have a food business. Under the Food Safety Act 1990 and the Food Hygiene Regulations 2005, there is a requirement to have adequate pest prevention and control measures in place. A comprehensive pest control contract, though not absolving you of responsibility to manage your premises properly, will help demonstrate due diligence and assist you with keeping your premises free from pests by providing:

Regular pest inspections

Pest proofing and monitoring

Fast and effective treatment of infestations

Comprehensive pest control reporting for your records
