Hospital pest control

Pests in health care settings pose unacceptable risks to your patients, staff, and visitors who demand a safe, hygienic environment, free of pests. Rentokil Steritech pest and vermin control can help you meet your pest prevention needs in the safest possible way so that you can focus on what is most important – providing quality operations that support patient care. 

Rentokil Steritech’s prevention services were designed to give you peace of mind. Using the most innovative products, equipment, and treatment methods, our highly trained specialists eliminate active infestations quickly and then implement preventive maintenance programs to combat future pest issues. 

It's simple, really – in health care, the spread of disease is a matter of life or death. Nowhere is it more critical to be pest-free. With Rentokil Steritech pests are not tolerated at any time, under any circumstances, for any reason. Our hospital pest control services will help keep you and your patients happy.

Core Pests for Health Care

Patient care is your utmost priority. Pests can jeopardize that care. Rentokil Steritech's pest prevention service stops pests from ever putting the people in your health care facility at risk. From offices to operating rooms, exterior to interior, our technicians have the skills to address the most frequent pest concerns: cockroaches, common ants, rats and mice

In addition, our integrated pest management protocols ensure that treatment is completed with pesticides only in response to detailed inspection and monitoring. By focusing on structural, storage, and sanitation corrections, Rentokil Steritech dramatically reduces the need for pesticide use, and builds a preventive barrier to keep pests out of your health care facility. 

With Rentokil Steritech on your side for hospital pest control, the health and safety of your patients, employees, and guests are protected from pest dangers.

Atypical ants in hospital

Any pests in health care facilities can be a concern, but certain species of ants can be especially harmful. Pharaoh and hairy crazy ants (also known as Rasberry ants) can be difficult to eliminate and have a tendency to infest electrical areas, which could short out critical systems. Fire ants are extremely dangerous, and their stings can be fatal to patients whose health may already be weakened. 

Rentlokil Steritech has developed specialized protocols to combat these atypical species, addressing the unique concerns posed by these pests. With targeted programs focused on eliminating any current infestations and regular service to help deter future issues, Rentokil Steritech is here to help you protect your patients from pest harm.

Bird control in hospitals

By design, hospital facilities with large, flat roof areas and towering buildings, are attractive gathering and vantage points for birds. And while they may seem harmless, a single bird's droppings and feathers can carry and transmit over 60 diseases. The presence of birds is a serious health and safety concern – they can compromise air quality, damage equipment and structures, and create an unsightly mess. 

Rentokil Steritech's Integrated Bird Management Program safely and humanely solves nuisance bird issues through an innovative and comprehensive solution of trapping, removal, and targeted exclusion techniques. In your health care facility, Rentokil Steritech will inspect and focus on areas such as roofs and HVAC units where birds are likely to gather, nest, and roost. 

The program is designed for targeted species, using no chemicals – a health and safety advantage that protects the people in and around the building, as well as your sustainability and green health care initiatives.

Occasional invaders in hospitals

Certain pests can create issues for health care facilities based on season, geography or environment. This group of occasional invader pests, which includes spiders, crickets, millipedes, centipedes, roly-poly bugs, earwigs, stink bugs, lady beetles, and boxelder bugs, although less common, can be a health and safety concern where clean and sterile environments are necessary. We can provide the hospital pest control necessary to eliminate these creatures.

Using our preventative approach to pest control, Rentokil Steritech has designed specialized protocols to service for occasional invaders, focusing on the specific pests' unique biology and behavioral traits to treat and eliminate them. 

Beginning with a detailed inspection both on the exterior and interior, Rentokil Steritech will devise a customized program to address the occasional invader concern at your facility – keeping your establishment free of pests and your patients safe.

Hospital fly control

Flies are vectors of disease, spreading bacteria wherever they land. Their presence in health care facilities is a threat to patient care and is simply unacceptable. But Rentokil Steritech's hospital pest control can resolve fly problems.

Rentokil Steritech’s fly control service begins on the exterior of your facility, where large flies breed and develop before making their way inside. A comprehensive fly baiting program targets fly hot spots, such as dumpsters, to kill flies before they have a chance to invade. Inside, we will install appropriate insect light traps and perform residual applications to ensure that flies that do find their way inside are eliminated. 

This monthly service provides multiple levels of protection to ensure that your establishment maintains its high standards of care and that your guests are safe from harm.

Bed Bug Control For Health Care

Bed bug infestations have reached epidemic proportions, and no health care facility is immune. Rentokil Steritech’s bed bug control programs can help you monitor for bed bug activity, and eliminate infestations quickly at the first signs of concern. 

If bed bugs are introduced, safely and effectively eliminate a bed bug issue in as little as 24 hours with our heat treatments or conventional treatments.

Hospital rodent control

Rats and mice should never be in your health care facility, which is why hospital pest control is crucial. Rodents are capable of transmitting diseases such as leptospirosis, and in a health care environment, illness is exactly what you are trying to avoid.

Rodents can also chew on wires - and in a hospital there are a lot of wires - which could lead to fire. Additionally, mice and rats can contaminate food, which would defeat your purpose of trying to give patients nourishment.

If you have a mouse or rat problem, these rodents need to be removed before the problems become worse. Rentokil Steritech can get rid of rats and mice at your property so you can keep your patients and facility safe.

Hospital cockroach control

Cockroaches have no place in your health care property. These pests often breed in unclean places like sewage systems, which does not align with your goal of maintaining a sanitary space for patients. Additionally, cockroaches yield allergens and their droppings can contaminate walls and food. A bad odor can also result from these pests. Clearly, cockroaches can harm your ability to promote patient health.

Whether you’re dealing with the German cockroach or the American cockroach, no cockroach should use your hospital as its home. Professional hospital pest control can help. Rentokil Steritech specialists are ready to handle your cockroach problem and get these pests out of your facility. Reach out to us if you’ve seen signs of a cockroach infestation.
