Health Care Facilities Service Programs
Central Exterminating Company recognizes the unique needs of patients and long-term residents. Our service technicians discretely perform their vital inspections and select treatments to avoid unnecessary attention.
Service program utilizing monitoring, trapping, and applications of specialized insect baits and Insect Growth Regulators (IGR) products to maintain a pest free environment. Traditional pesticide applications are reserved for special pest situations not promptly responding to normal control methods. Pesticide selection always involves low or non-odor formulations. Special application times are considered before applications are performed.
Central Exterminating Company has been a pioneer of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) as a service philosophy and practice for the sensitive settings of health care facilities for over 20 years. We recognized years ago that reducing the reliance on regular pesticide spraying within this environment was best for everyone involved. The foundation of IMP relies on controlling a pest’s ability to enter the structure initially.
The Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA), developed an IPM Standard in September of 2009 to insure that this type of service program achieved satisfactory performance results by setting and reporting specific goals on the part of the customer and pest control provider.
The Central Exterminating Company IPM Service Program involves:
- The initial inspection process to identify:
- Pest trends in the structure.
- The pest threshold/tolerance level acceptable in the structure.
- Structural weaknesses in the facility allowing pest entry.
- The recommended corrective action is taken, which involves maintaining the structure to exclude pest entry through methods such as:
- Insect monitoring traps
- Insect control baits and growth regulators
- Dust formulations for void-type applications
- Providing limited traditional pesticide applications only as needed.
- Follow-up inspections to verify the success of structural modifications.
- Re-evaluate pest trends to determine that pest control results have been successfully achieved.
The interior spraying of a traditional insecticide is reserved for special situations that fail to respond, in any reasonable amount of time, to bait or dust applications, or fails to control an infestation quickly to prevent disruption of the facilities daily operations.
