Metro Orlando FL | Kissimmee - Sanford - Leesburg
The healthcare industry has high standards when it comes to pest management. Hospitals are prime targets for pest infestations, and cannot be serviced in the same manner as manufacturing sites, retail outlets, restaurants, or office buildings.
Pests Found in Hospitals
Hospitals are susceptible to pests commonly found in houses and businesses. Ants, fire ants, bedbugs, cockroaches, ticks, fleas, mice, mosquitoes, rats and spiders, among others, can all slip into buildings as people and deliveries come in and out. Pests can gain access in backpacks, boxes, delivery vehicles, and on people and their belongings. Pests can transmit a host of diseases to humans and animals with effects ranging from minor discomfort to death. Some diseases spread by pests include:
- Bubonic plague
- and many more

Asthma and Cockroaches in Hospitals
A study by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and a report in the New England Journal of Medicine, show that even among many common asthmatic triggers, cockroach allergens cause the most health problems for asthmatic children. These allergens build up in deposits of droppings, secretions, cast skins, and dead bodies of roaches. Pest-transmitted diseases can be controlled through proper pest management techniques. Identification of species, habitat, and behavior can help a pest management professional control infestations, subsequently preventing outbreaks of pest-transmitted diseases. We use our extensive knowledge and experience to protect your health care facility and develop a thorough and effective pest management program to meet your needs.

Choosing the Right Healthcare Pest Management Company
Pest management plays a major role in allowing us to live healthier, more prosperous and comfortable lives. To ensure proper pest management, always deal with a qualified and licensed pest management company. Before we even begin to treat your facility, you’ll know what the pest is, how the problem will be treated, how long the period of treatment will be, and what results can be expected. Effective treatment depends on correctly identifying the pest species and developing a treatment that takes the pest’s biology and habits into account.
Pest Prevention in Healthcare Facilities
After we treat your clinic or medical office, we’ll take steps to tell you exactly what to do to prevent further issues. In between professional pest control visits, employees can take a variety of steps to reduce the likelihood of infestation and ensure proper pest management. They should remain vigilant in assessing their environment. Encouraging employees to wipe down exposed areas, secure trash lids, maintain a clean floor space, and keep windows and doors fastened. Employees can also track pest sightings in a pest sighting log – recording the type of pest, location, and behavior. This will help your Heron technician when they come in to reevaluate the facility periodically.Back to Commercial Pest Control
