Pharmaceutical buildings and healthcare facilities have an uphill battle when it comes to stopping the spread of germs. That is, after all, why most people are in these types of buildings – viruses, diseases, infections, etc. The thought of additional risks to visitors, staff, and patients because of pest infestations are unacceptable, to say the least. The public deserves and should demand a hygienic, safe environment that is free of rodents and insects.
Pharmaceutical buildings and healthcare facilities are dealing every day with disease and the possibility of its spread. Controlling the pest population in these buildings is far more than just a matter of getting rid of pesky little creatures – it is a question of life and death.
Main Pest Threats Faced by Healthcare and Pharmaceutical Buildings
From operating rooms to the offices contained within these facilities – from the interior to the exterior – pest control technicians must use all of their skills to address these most commonly seen healthcare and pharmaceutical building pests:
Invaders that are occasionally seen, but less common, include the following: ladybugs, stink bugs, earwigs, roly-poly bugs, centipedes, millipedes, crickets, and spiders. In facilities with courtyards, even wild animals can pose a problem such as birds, squirrels, raccoons, etc.
Potential interior problem areas can include garbage holding areas, loading docks, kitchen areas, common rooms, slop sink areas, electrical/janitor closets, offices, and storage rooms. Exterior areas must be checked for conditions that would be favorable for birds, rodents, and insects to breach the security of the building.
