Rehabilitation centers, healthcare facilities, and nursing homes require a safe and pest-free space.

When you call on our team, we’ll work with you one-on-one to create a specialized treatment plan for your environment, ensuring your patients always remain safe and protected.
The Importance of Pest Control in Nursing Homes and Long-Term Care Facilities
Any type of healthcare establishment like this requires a safe environment. This environment is complex, though, with numerous entrances, hidden spaces, and people moving in and out of it. This makes containing risk difficult to do. Nevertheless, this environment needs to be as sterile as possible to protect patients and to ensure a low risk of infection and disease. All types of facilities require an ongoing and dedicated approach to pest treatment including bed bugs in nursing homes and rehabilitation centers. Locations such as the following need constant attention:
• Assisted Living Communities
• Nursing Homes
• Drug and Alcohol Treatment Centers
• Inpatient and Outpatient Rehabilitation Centers and more
What Pests Are a Threat in These Facilities?
It’s common to hear about bed bugs in rehabilitation centers and nursing homes, but the type and number of pests that find a way into these locations are much more extensive. Common pests found in nursing homes and long-term facilities include:
• Bed bugs
• Over-wintering pests such as stink bugs, boxelder bugs, cluster flies, Asian lady beetles
• Rodents including rats and mice
Finding the right approach to treatment is a complex process best left to professionals with extensive experience treating these types of infestations and the risks involved. Our team will specialize treatment to meet the risks in your establishment or most likely to be impacting your establishment.
