Mice Can Shut Your Restaurant Down

A mice infestation can swiftly become a nightmare for any restaurant. Just a small group of mice can breed rapidly, leaving droppings, urine, odours, and contamination everywhere. Their constant gnawing and nibbling causes structural damage. Walls, floors, and cabinets develop holes that allow mice to spread through walls to infest entire buildings. Electrical fires easily start from their chewing on wires.

With so many potential health code violations, restaurants face fines, failed inspections, and even closure due to mice. Additionally, the reputation damage and customer complaints that follow public knowledge of an infestation can completely destroy dining establishments. Revenue plummets as patrons avoid restaurants associated with pests. Negative publicity and reviews spread fast on social media, causing lasting impacts.

Mice also contaminate massive amounts of food, forcing expensive disposal and lost profits. Between the regulatory, publicity, facility, inventory and operational consequences, mice infestations can put your London restaurant out of business if left unchecked.

Inspection and Assessment

Our experienced technicians begin by conducting a thorough inspection of your restaurant. We identify entry points, nesting sites, and the extent of the infestation. This assessment helps us tailor our approach to your specific needs.


Customised Treatment Plan

Based on our findings, we create a customised treatment plan that takes into account the unique layout and requirements of your establishment. We understand that every restaurant is different, and one-size-fits-all solutions simply won’t do.


Proactive Proofing

To prevent future infestations, we employ proactive proofing measures. This includes sealing entry points, reinforcing vulnerable areas, and implementing exclusion methods to keep mice out for good.


Humane Trapping

Our approach to pest control is humane and environmentally responsible. We use traps and methods that prioritise the well-being of the mice while effectively removing them from your premises.


Safe Disposal

Safeguard Pest Control ensures that any trapped mice are safely and responsibly disposed of, in compliance with all relevant regulations.



After the initial treatment, we continue to monitor your restaurant for any signs of mouse activity. This proactive approach allows us to address potential issues before they escalate.



We provide you with valuable insights and recommendations to prevent future infestations. Our goal is not just to solve the immediate problem, but to equip you with the knowledge to maintain a pest-free environment.



Our commitment to your restaurant’s well-being doesn’t end with the initial treatment. We offer follow-up services to ensure that the mouse infestation is fully resolved, and your establishment remains pest-free.

Signs Mice Have Infiltrated Your Restaurant

Given the high standards of cleanliness and hygiene expected in London restaurants, any of these signs should trigger immediate action. Ignoring these indicators can lead to more extensive infestations, potential health hazards, and damage to your establishment’s reputation.

Detecting mice early can make all the difference in preserving your restaurant’s reputation and ensuring the safety of your patrons. Here are some key signs to watch for:

Dark-coloured droppings

One of the most obvious indicators of a mouse’s presence is its droppings. House Mice leave behind an average of 70 droppings in just 24 hours. These droppings are small, dark, and rod-shaped, typically scattered around food storage areas, behind appliances, or along baseboards.

Gnaw marks

Mice have a compulsive need to gnaw in order to keep their teeth at a constant length. Consequently, you might notice gnaw marks on food packaging, wiring, wooden furniture, or any material they encounter.

Damaged food products

Mice are voracious nibblers, often taking small bites from various sources of food rather than consuming one item entirely. Look out for holes in food packaging or signs of food contamination, which can compromise the safety and quality of your dishes.

Scratching and gnawing

In quieter moments, you may hear scratching or gnawing sounds, especially if the infestation is extensive. These noises can originate from walls, ceilings, or hidden corners where mice seek shelter and nesting sites.

Foul odours

As mice leave behind urine and faeces while exploring, you may detect a persistent, unpleasant odour. This scent can become more noticeable in areas where mice frequent.

Nesting materials

Mice create nests using various materials, such as paper, fabric, and insulation. Discovering these materials in unexpected places, like storage areas or utility rooms, can be a sign of an active infestation.

Visual sightings

While mice are nocturnal creatures and tend to avoid direct human contact, some diners or staff may spot them scurrying across floors or along walls, especially during late hours.
