Leisure Centres & Football Clubs

London & the South East

The hospitality and leisure sectors are a growth sector in the UK economy, as consumers continue to have both more leisure time and disposable income. With this growth, has also come an increase in pest infestations. This has led to an alliance being forged between the BPCA and the British Hospitality Association (BHA). The alliance aims to raise awareness and alert members to the importance of putting an effective pest control system in place, using an accredited BPCA member, like Shield Pest Control.
For example, there are many more out of town shopping complexes than even twenty years ago and these retail complexes are a haven for urban pests. This is because they consist of many single retail units, which each have lots of hiding places for pests, yet they are connected by convenient super-highways of water, waste, heating, electricity, data, smoke detection and security alarm services. On top of this, the storage areas and cage stores tend to be communal stock areas. A haven for many types of pests, from rodents to insects, birds, flies and other vermin.
In addition, shopping malls are well heated and include an assortment of food outlets, and possibly sports and leisure facilities all on the same site. Finally there is a continual coming and going of people and vehicles from far and wide, meaning pests can be both imported and exported!

Working tirelessly and efficiently on our clients behalf, Shield Pest Control has helped Leisure Centres and Football Clubs avoid any potential non-conformance issues – especially when audits are undertaken.
