Pest Control Methods for Hospitals
We know meeting state and federal regulations is important to you — Catseye’s year-round health care pest control services and prevention will ensure you’re always up to code.
Crawling Insect Control:
Pests like ants, beetles and cockroaches can damage and contaminate your food products. We use discrete monitors to gauge pest activity, then apply baits and residual insecticides to eliminate any pest problem we detect.
Flying Insect Control:
Fly lights and attractants are used to monitor and control the activity of flying pests. We also use baits and residual insecticides to get rid of pests like fruit flies, drain flies and bees. In addition, drains are cleaned and treated so that flies are less likely to reproduce.
Mice & Rodent Control:
We use a combination of safe and humane rodent bait stations and mechanical rodent monitoring devices to remove these critters.
At Catseye, we believe in more than just getting rid of your pests. We want to go above and beyond for every service. This is why we vaccuum, disinfect and otherwise return the area to the way it was before pests invaded.
Minor Repair and Seal Ups:
Catseye technicians are always keeping an eye out for the ways pests are getting into your building. If we find small openings, like the hole where a pipe enters the building or a crack in the foundation, we will seal it to keep pests out. We also seal up areas, like behind backsplashes, where pests will hide.
Permanent Pest Exclusion:
Our health care pest exterminator services are just part of our offerings. Sometimes it’s more than just a couple small openings that are letting pests sneak inside your restaurant or foodservice facility. Our Cat-Guard Exclusion Systems are all-natural, permanent solutions to keeping the pests out. Are bigger pests causing problems on your property?

Common Pests in Hospitals
- Bed Bugs
Rodents, Birds and Wildlife
How To Prevent bed bugs in Your Health Care Facility
Bed bug populations are on the rise in not only hotels, but health care facilities, like nursing homes, across North America. The higher the guest turnover rate, the greater chance one of these prehistoric hitchhikers finds itself in your health care facility. When it comes to health care pest management, the constant monitoring of activity is a must. Look for “salt and pepper” like markings along the folds of hospital beds and mattresses -- those are bed bug droppings. A sure sign of a bed bug infestation, these will accumulate along mattresses and in furniture as the infestation worsens. When doing laundry, look for blood spots on sheets as well.
- Avoid any clutter and vacuum all rooms regularly
- Routinely inspect rooms for bed bug activity
- Pull back baseboard moldings, look along bed frames, box springs and mattresses for “salt and pepper” like spots
- Keep linens clean and replace old ones regularly
- Inspect behind picture frames or light fixtures
- When collecting dirty linens, make sure to note where each sheet is coming from to discover the problem as quickly as possible
Pest Control Procedures for Hospitals & Healthcare Facilities
Health care is one of the most regulated industries in the United States, at both the federal and state levels. Legislation like the Nursing Home Reform Act were put in place to protect the health and well-being of any patients that come through a nursing home’s doors. Pests like cockroaches, though they don’t transmit any known diseases, can carry bacteria on them because of the filth they are attracted to. Both bed bugs and cockroaches can make life for your patients miserable, and lead to health code violations. Catseye is here to provide health care pest control procedures to ensure you are not only up to code, but that you and your patients remain protected from pests permanently.
