Commercial Pest Control for Medical and Veterinarian Offices

Many veterinary and medical offices that utilize pest control routinely use traditional pesticides for controlling pests regardless of the actual need. Hearts Pest Management, however, practices Integrated Pest Management (IPM) each time we service a facility. Client safety from both pests and chemicals should be a primary concern for your business.

Medical and Healthcare Offices

Medical offices may have the following pest issues, (especially in southern California where we have warm weather year-round): Ants, spiders (black and brown widows), mice, rats, mites, fleas, roaches, and bed bugs. Hearts Pest Management provides medical offices and facilities with organic pest control combined with IPM methods. Integrated Pest Management is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to keeping your office as pest-free as possible; using pesticides, even organic, is a last resort.
Hearts Pest Management is recognized by California’s Environmental Protection Agency as an innovator in Integrated Pest Management.

Our service professionals are trained in Integrated Pest Management and are EcoWise Certified for organic applications. The technician will sit down with you and develop a plan utilizing the best methods to manage pest damage with the least possible hazard to your property, and the environment.

Ants and Spiders

Ants and spiders can be treated with our organic products. In California, Argentine ants are a major problem as well as black and brown widow spiders. Hearts will remove any webs and spider egg sacs; we will not only treat the ants but search for the source and treat the nest as well. If your business is having a spider infestation, most likely it’s because you have a lot of insects – a spider’s food source. Treat for insects and you’ll have less spiders!
Argentine Ant

Unlike most ant species, Argentine ants have multiple queens which make them difficult to control with do-it-yourself methods.

Black and Brown Widow Spiders

Black Widow Spiders have a red hour glass shape whereas Brown Widows have an orange colored one on their abdomens.

If your office is large enough for a kitchen where staff prepares food and eat on a daily basis, roaches and ants can become a problem unless staff is instructed to empty the trash frequently and refrain from leaving food out overnight. Sometimes, especially during the summer, ants come indoors in search of water. Hearts can help keep ant infestations at bay with either organic or low-impact products.

Bed Bugs in a Medical Office Environment

When you have patients coming and going on a daily basis, they can very well bring unknown pests with them into your office. For example, bed bugs; the eggs stick to clothing and bags and if someone has recently traveled, they may have them and not know it for a couple of weeks – until the bed bugs hatch!
Bed Bug Bites

Bed Bug Bites

Fleas are another pest that people carry indoors on their shoes. During the flea season, people will often have a flea infestation even though they don’t own any pets or their animals are indoors. Fleas can also come from rats. …

Rats and Mice

Rats and mice can enter buildings through small cracks or holes near pipes, in the eaves, and the foundation; both pose a health hazard to your office or facility. It is a well-known fact that rodents carry diseases but if you work in the medical field, you probably already know that even just breathing in the smell of rat urine and feces from vents can also transmit diseases.

Veterinarian Offices and Animal Facilities

Veterinarian offices have their own unique pest issues because of the nature of their business in caring for and sometimes boarding animals.
Some rats and mice carry hantavirus – a rare, and potentially fatal airborne disease.

Fleas are a main problem and sometimes ticks but then there are the usual ants, spiders, water bugs, etc. that offices often acquire throughout the year. Bird mites can become an issue if there is a nest on or near the building and/or birds are treated in the facility. Animal boarding facilities experience other types of pests such as flies, rats (they actually will eat dog pooh!) and mice.
Vets and animal facilities have ongoing problems with fleas, mainly because not all clients have their pets on flea control.

Pest Prevention:

There are steps you can take to help keep the pest population downFor animal care and veterinarian offices: Keeping dog and cat food in tightly sealed containers will keep mice and ants from invading and contaminating the food. Cleaning litter boxes and scooping up outdoor pet feces will help keep flies and rats at bay. Fleas are a little harder to control unless customers are treating their pets. In flea season, even people without pets get fleas from carrying them indoors on their shoes. Ticks are another issue with dogs that are allowed to roam in local chaparral; it’s important to have these customers on flea and tick control. Hearts can treat for both as well as the other types of pest mentioned. For medical offices: Making sure the kitchen and food areas are kept clean prevents roaches and ants. Sweeping and vacuuming the office every week helps prevent webs. For both of offices: Caulking any gaps and holes in the building will keep out a lot of general pests as well as rodents. Keeping storage areas free from too much clutter in the corners will prevent spiders from setting up home, especially if it is swept frequently. Getting rid of abandoned nests on the building is important; otherwise, the bird mites will come inside to find new hosts – your staff or your patients! Having your landscapers trim any branches from nearby trees that are touching the roof will prevent rats from climbing onto it. Trimming plants and shrubs about 12 inches away from the perimeter of the building lessens the chance for ants to come indoors as well as other insects.
Gaps as the result of broken concrete provide perfect access for mice, spiders, ants, and other pests.

An Environmentally Conscious Company

Hearts Pest Management treats for a variety of pests, however, our philosophy is that all animals, insects, and arachnids have their place and are an integral part of the environment but once they start coming indoors and infest your place of business, creating potential harm, it’s only then that they become “pests.” We do our best to practice Integrated Pest Management to minimize damage to the environment and treat only when and where it is necessary.
