No mention in the report as to whether the shop owner had pest control or not. If any shop is selling foodstuffs or preparing food onsite it is in the owners interest to hire in a professional pest control contractor.  Pest controllers can advise on how to keep your goods from being contaminated by pests, advise on proofing to deny pests entry into your premises and should the Environmental Health Officer pay you a visit, we can be there to help with any pest control related matters.
