Helping keep London 2012 sites pest free

Cleankill was proud to be in charge of the pest control at two high-profile sites during London 2012.

At the equestrian site in Greenwich, Cleankill looked after the pest control at all of the food areas, including the concessions, marquees and all the kitchens – including the ones for the athletes.

The pests that were of particular concern and needed prevention measures in place included mice, rats and garden ants. Bait stations were installed and sticky pad insect detectors placed in appropriate locations. Visits were carried out by technicians every ten days in the run up to the games and during the Olympics.

Cleankill was also called in to provide pest control services for the food areas at Eton Dorney – the Olympic venue for rowing.

Paul Bates, Managing Director of Cleankill Pest Control, said: “We were invited to tender for this work on the back of some excellent work we carried out for a leisure company. It was a great privilege to be involved in the games in this way.”
