Healthcare facilities are challenging for pest control because they have living quarters, food preparation and service areas, as well as retail space, including flower shops, laundry and common areas. They also have a strict need for pest control without airborne pesticides in patient areas and operating rooms.
Professionals in this industry need pest control that is responsive and effective from a provider who can blend seamlessly into the facility’s in-house team. Healthcare facilities look for a pest control provider to anticipate and prevent problems – focusing on prevention rather than a cure. They view the hospital’s patients, medical personnel and staff as their customers, and they want their provider to work with the in-house team to keep the customers satisfied.
With huge amounts of product entering a plant on a daily basis, food safety is a top concern in these environments. At the same time, the food processing environment routinely attracts pests and aids in their survival.
As a retailer, your business is based on giving a good impression to the customers coming into your store every day. A pest problem can jeopardize your relationship with your customers and expose them to unnecessary health risks as well. Pests carry many harmful bacteria such as Salmonella, Shigella and Staphylococcus that can threaten the health of customers and employees. Retail environments are vulnerable to pest infestation because of different circumstances such as constant deliveries and the traffic of people coming in and out of the environment. These all give opportunity for pests to enter a store.
