Pestaurant started the year, bright and breezy by supporting Brunel University's 'Green Week' to introduce students to the delights of Entomophagy. It then made a welcome return visit to the Didsbury Open Gardens in June bringing along our Rentokil specialist bird team who delighted the crowds flying their hawks and falcons. These birds of prey are used as natural deterrents for problem birds such as gulls and pigeons, which can cause issues with fouling and roosting on venues such as stadiums, ports and retail parks.
Pestaurant continued its school tour in 2016 in support of our chosen charity Malaria No More UK and their 'Miles for Malaria' fundraising campaign.
As a National company, with locally based teams, we continue to take our award winning Pestaurant on tour to a number of towns and cities throughout the UK during 2016.
Following numerous appearances across the UK in 2014 and 2015, we will be bringing pestaurant to even more UK locations throughout 2016.
Pestaurant will be visiting:
At a Rentokil Pestaurant the food is FREE and a number of Rentokil experts are on hand to discuss the edible insects being served, answer any pest related questions you may have and pass on their 'top tips' for avoiding pest problems at work and at home.
Pestaurant is looking forward to popping-up at the ExCel London for the inaugural New Scientist Live event from 22nd - 25th September.
To kick off the event, on day one we'll be cooking up your favourite treat from our Great British Bug-Off competition. Pick your preferred snack from the three short listed below - the recipe video that gets the most 'views' wins!
Holly Bell bakes a mean Black Forest Floor Brownie, using mealworms for the batter and presentation alike. High in protein, a little mealworm goes a long way and the versatile insect can be eaten panfried, dry-roasted... the list goes on!

Glenn Cosby delivers a crunch with Cricket & Peanut Brittle Chocolate Cupcakes. What was once a cheeky treat is now great for your bones and nails, thanks to the calcium-rich crickets, and they’re also a great source of vitamins. What’s not to love?
Ruth Clemens, Great British Bake Off finalist, whips up an Early Bird Breakfast Pie complete with bamboo worms. A favourite for morning runners, bamboo worms are high in protein yet low in carbs: what better way to kick start your day!
