Pest Control for Restaurants, Bars, Pubs, Cafes, and Kitchens

Hygiene is critical for any business serving customers, and nothing says “lack of hygiene” like a pest infestation. Get it fixed, fast, to protect your business.

Don't let pests damage your food business

Reputation is a fragile thing when word of mouth and online review sites have a significant impact on how people perceive your business. If you serve food to the public, maintaining your reputation is vital, and there's nothing like a pest problem to cause irreversible damage.

Food hygiene legislation requires you to take appropriate measures for the prevention, early detection, and control of pests - and falling foul of these regulations could result in your business being shut down until the pest problem is resolved. Appropriate pest control is also a feature in the Food Hygiene Rating system, affecting the rating your business could receive.

Protect your business, protect your customers, and protect your reputation, with expert pest control from JPS Environmental.

Common Pests in Food Services

Cockroaches are the bane of kitchens, attracted by food and water. Keeping your premises scrupulously clean is the first line of defense, but sometimes even that isn't enough to keep them at bay. Any infestation in a commercial kitchen is a big concern, as cockroaches can pose a real health risk, carrying pathogens that cause food poisoning as well as other diseases.

Rodents are a particularly unwelcome pest in restaurants, bars and cafes, and not only because they're a big risk to your reputation. Rats and mice carry bacterial and viral diseases, including leptospirosis, hantavirus and tularemia, and an infestation could get you shut down.

Wherever there's food, there's flies, and restaurants are no exception. Flies feed on decaying waste, pick up pathogens on their legs, and transfer those pathogens to the next surfaces they land on, transmitting disease and food poisoning. Keeping lids on your rubbish, cleaning worktops, clearing sinks and drains regularly, and keeping food covered or refrigerated can help, but serious infestations may need professional help.

Establishments with outdoor eating areas may struggle with wasps in the summer. Spilled drinks, especially sugary or alcoholic, attract wasps who may be nesting nearby, causing nuisance to diners and sometimes even making beer gardens unusable. If you have a wasp nest on the premises, removing it is vital to protecting patrons who may have allergies to stings.

I am very happy with the service provided by JPS environmental.
I have found working with Gary Horide very easy and he takes time to visit us to discuss more difficult pest control problems. They also have access to the latest pest control techniques and their workmanship is very good with no tenant complaints.

Recurring moth problem

We contacted JPS to assist with a moth problem that was not going away easily.
They were easily contactable and happy to try and fit in with demanding client schedules. Gary was very helpful and gave us lots of information and a range of options to try, returning when we called him at short notice!
Thanks very much, I believe the problem has now been resolved.

Stephen Saunders, Southend Essex

Just want to thank you JPS for the prompt service and professional attitude you showed when recently you undertook the task of thoroughly cleaning and controlling the infestation of cockroaches at my mother's property.
You made what seemed like an impossible task seem easy.

Tony, Plaistow

Just wanted to say a big 'Thank You' for the great job you did for us in removing the wasp nest from our garden which was causing us a lot of stress. Everything is perfect now. No wasps to be seen. Would highly recommend you.

Lisa and Tony, Romford, Essex

We are a mansion block based in Central London for some time had an ongoing issue with roosting pigeons. We asked JPS for their advice and help. Various options were discussed with the merits for all explained and we eventually opted for bird netting with various gates to give us access on our fire escapes. It has worked a treat and solved our problems 100%. We found their team to be professional and courteous and we would highly recommend them.

Andrea Slatter (Chief Executive) of Bickenhall Mansions

Thank you for attending and providing the service. I will certainly forward any referrals. 

Tony Ashley, Aldersbrook Baptist Church

Thank you for expediting [the installation of new netting and spikes, and deep cleaning to the roof and outside the block] for me.
