Pest Control for Shops, Retailers and Shopping Centres

The last thing any shop needs is a pest problem to turn customers away and damage your stock and your reputation.

Keep your business clear of pests

When your business is customer-facing, first impressions count and word of mouth spreads fast. Any pest problem will affect how people view your shop but with people coming and going each day, plus regular deliveries, retail environments are always vulnerable to pests.

The impact of a pest infestation can be devastating to a shop - from the potential for reputational damage to the very real costs of contaminated or damaged stock that must be written off as a loss. The health and safety of your staff and customers is an obligation that retailers must manage, and preventing pests is a key part of that.

Common Pests in Retail

Rats and mice are often the biggest pest found in storage areas, where they're attracted to the warmth and goods they can use to create their nests. Rodents chew through fabric, wood, cardboard, and even soft metals and contaminate surfaces with their waste - contaminating and destroying your stock.

Clothing retailers need to be vigilant to prevent moths damaging fabrics. Clothes moths eat natural fibres, like wool, cotton, and linen, but will also chew through blended fabrics as long as they contain some natural fibres. An infestation of moths can destroy your stock quickly if not taken care of, and risk a customer taking home an item that spreads the problem to their home.

Bird control is another area for retail businesses to consider. Pigeons and seagulls leaving unsightly and unhygienic droppings on your shopfront can be off putting to potential customers, and leave the impression that your shop is unclean or uncared for. Large warehouses and storage areas in shopping centres may also find birds trying to nest inside.

Dealing with Pests in Retail

Retailers of any size need pest problems handled quickly, discreetly, and effectively. JPS Environmental recognise that there are many different areas in retail, so we build up a survey of your premises in order to deploy the right treatments for your specific environment.

We know that visible signs of pest control can give customers the wrong impression, so we'll help you find the underlying causes of your pest problems and implement pest proofing measures to prevent future issues. Our annual pest management contracts can help you ensure your shop or shopping centre is being looked after year-round, but if you just need a quick solution to an infestation, give us a call for our competitive emergency pest control services.

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.

Many thanks.

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.
