Which Pest Control Methods are Right for Your Facility?

Learn about IPM (Integrated Pest Management) & the steps your should take before you consider chemical control methods.

Controlling pests in a sensitive environment requires a full range of treatment approaches that suit the specific situation. Orkin’s three-part video series, brought to you by Orkin’s Dr. Ron Harrison and the Association for the Healthcare Environment (AHE), is your guide to Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in healthcare, including how to treat when issues arise.

In this second video, you’ll learn about the steps you should take before considering a chemical application, including the evaluation of other types of control methods such as:

  • Biological methods

  • Mechanical methods

  • Cultural methods

Chemical control methods can still be considered in an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) plan if there are ongoing issues that require chemical treatment. However, this should be used strategically in target areas and administered correctly to help ensure the safety of your patients and staff.
