It is critical for hospitals to be pest free. Pests of all kinds carry risks that include disease, stings, allergic reactions, and more. But bedbugs, especially, can be a serious problem for hospitals. With numerous beds, immobile patients, and heavy foot traffic, hospitals that get only a few bedbugs can quickly see a substantial infestation in minimal time.
Hospitals have many amenities that are prone to bedbugs, such as their numerous patient rooms, kitchen services, and other storage spaces – all of which are susceptible to infestation. Bed bugs are tiny creatures that hide in the folds of bedsheets, in cracks within the drywall, and in other areas of a property and feed off patient’s blood causing itchy red bumps.
Many healthcare facilities in Vancouver, BC face bed bug infestations as almost 1 in 3 hospitals have reported bedbug sightings. In addition, most hospitals have immunocompromised patients, which means that it is important to utilize bedbug control technology that is safe for these populations.
If you are in need of bed bug control and would like to keep your hospital as safe for patients as possible, contact your experts at Canada Bed Bug at 631-598-3637 today.
Treatment for Bed Bugs in Hospitals in Vancouver BC
Bedbugs breed quickly, can hide in almost imperceptible spaces, and can wait for almost a year without feeding. They are also well adapted to certain types of treatments, and know how to run away to other areas of the property if they feel threatened.
All of these issues are the reason that it is not possible to eliminate bedbugs with any over the counter or DIY products. Bedbugs need to be treated by trained professionals able to identify every area bedbugs can be hiding and comprehensively eliminate these biting pests.
