Pest Control for Recovery Centers

Recovery centers, half-way houses, transitional, and sober living facilities have their own unique pest control issues that must be dealt with in a sensitive manner. Individuals living in these centers come from all walks of life, some from prisons, where they’ve been around diverse populations there as well. Each person starting a new beginning with the help of counselors and facilities such as yours that is dedicated to helping those in need.
Keeping recovery centers free of pest can be difficult with people living in such close quarters.

Keeping recovery centers free of pest can be difficult with people living in such close quarters.

When people are constantly moving in and out of a place, so do pests like bed bugs and roaches. Hearts Pest Management can keep your facility from infestations of these and other types of insects. Besides treating for current bed bug problems, we can provide a monthly bed bug monitoring service to prevent new infestations from happening. You just never know when new people are arriving at your center daily; someone may be bringing in bed bugs.

Bed Bug Control and Prevention for Multiple Bed Facilities

A good Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach will utilize all possible methods of prevention and treatment available that reduce the risk of pesticide exposure to individuals and the environment. IPM methods include:
    • 1. Inspection of infected areas, and the surrounding units or living spaces.
    • 2. Train personnel on proper identification of bed bugs.
    3. Bed bug monitoring systems to be checked on a monthly or bi-monthly basis.

Hearts Pest Management has a few different methods for treating bed bugs but first we inspect, free-of-charge, to determine your facility’s needs. Your Hearts service professional will sit down and outline a pest management plan utilizing various treatment options and IPM methods. He/she will help you gain control over current pest problems and help prevent future infestations.

Once bed bugs have been identified:

    • 1. Do not try over the counter pesticides and foggers! They are NOT effective treatments for bed bugs.
    • 2. Call a licensed pest control professional such as Hearts who has experience in the treatment and removal of bed bugs and who will treat the living space and the surrounding spaces to insure eradication.
    • 3. Follow the bed bug preparation sheet provided by your pest service representative.
    • 4. Do not allow residents to re-inhabit the area until the area has been certified as bed bug free.
    • 5. To prevent future infestations, all sleeping mattresses and box springs should be encased in plastic mattress covers and only metal bed frames should be utilized.
    6. Repair and caulk any cracks and gaps in walls, baseboards, windowsills, etc.
German Cockroach

Another pest that frequents residential facilities is the dreaded cockroach. Sometimes people bring roaches home from the grocery store in bags or boxes but that’s not a real infestation. You know you have a problem with roaches when you flip the kitchen light on at night and you see them scurrying about on the counters. One big contributing factor to roach infestations is lack of sanitation. Keeping floors, counters, bedrooms free of food and trash cans covered, takes a team effort both on the part of the staff and the residents. Teaching residents to clean on a daily basis is good for the facility and also helps them build daily life skills that they need to return to the mainstream of society. Here are some of the service we offer at Hearts Pest Management: Traditional and Organic Pest Control – ants, spiders, earwigs, outdoor fleas, and Oriental roaches. Rat and Mice Control – rodent trapping and baiting, attic clean-out and exclusion. Wasps and Bees – removal and honeycomb cleanup. Roach Control – kitchen infestations of American and German roaches. Landscape Pest Management – aphids, whitefly, grubs, snails, fungus, flies, gnats, and mosquitos. Fleas – inside and outdoor flea treatments. Gophers and Squirrels
