The recent mice infestation at Burger King in the Birmingham Bull Ring is a great example of how mice, if given the opportunity, will take full advantage of food scraps and gather in large numbers.
Environmental health officers from Birmingham City Council discovered the infestation and the restaurant was forced to temporarily close whilst they dealt with the issue.
Rat and Mice infestations in shopping centres are not uncommon, especially at food establishments that have been less than hygienic in their operations. Shopping centres can potentially provide warmth, shelter and a ready supply of food and that’s what makes them so popular with rodents.
Back in 2010, the Indoor Market in the Birmingham Bull Ring had problems with a mice and cockroach infestation which caused all of the 140 stalls to temporarily shut down. Suffice to say, pest infestations are very bad for business.
