Identify Your Pest >>

Visitors to residents in nursing homes are generally welcomed because the residents' spirits are lifted by family news and the opportunity to have a conversation with those closest to them. But long-term care facilities also have a constant battle with unwanted visitors - pests that infiltrate the buildings and threaten the health and well-being of those who live and work there.

long care

Three types of pests are among the top offenders - ants, flying insects and cockroaches. Facility managers have to maintain high standards in cleanliness and create barriers that will keep these intruders from settling in and growing in population.

Pest removal is more sensitive at a healthcare facility or nursing home than at other venues because people who are treated and reside in those locations have illnesses that could worsen if they're exposed to chemicals typically used to eradicate pests. The health needs of the patients have to be considered before a program is put in place.

However, if preventive steps don't work, a professional pest control service like Abell Pest Control is the best resource to consult. They can analyze the nature of the problem and determine the best treatment that won't compromise the health of patients. Pest control experts can also advise the facility's staff about ways to prevent future pest issues.

Stringent maintenance

Preventive pest management differs according to the insect or animal that needs to be removed. With cockroaches, for instance, strong sanitation measures must be maintained without lapses, particularly in food service, waste disposal and high-moisture areas.

Careful inspection of incoming crates and containers of food will catch roaches before they have a chance to invade the property. Cardboard packaging, in which they can hide, must be thrown out immediately. Food supplies should be stored on elevated shelving.

Worn-out door sweeps or window seals should be replaced periodically to prevent ants and other crawling insects from entering the premises. As with cockroaches, debris and food waste should be disposed carefully, stored food must be tightly sealed and any water leaks that create moisture must be fixed right away.

An additional dilemma faced by nursing facilities is the high-traffic flow of people, which can increase the chance of pests gaining entry. That's particularly true of flying insects like wasps and bees that can sting people and cause serious allergic reactions. Installing sets of double doors in busy lobbies and situating strong fans at doors and windows to keep the breeze flowing out of the building are good preventive steps to keep flying insects away.

Abell Pest Control is a family owned Canadian company dedicated to providing effective, professional and courteous service in pest management. Abell is proud to announce its 90th year of providing quality pest control services to North America.
