Top 3 Invaders of Retirement – Healthcare Facilities
Invader #1: Ants
One of the biggest problems related to ants is contamination. Ants carry bacteria on their bodies, which spreads when they crawl in storage areas and counter tops. Only a few species are known to transmit diseases. Some species, like carpenter and fire ants, cause additional problems. A carpenter ant infestation can do costly damage by chewing tunnels through wood beams. Fire ant stings that involve envenomation can cause pain and more serious symptoms that often result in allergic reactions to some people who are hyper-sensitive to ant stings.
Invader #2: Pest Birds
While pest birds usually remain outside, they can be annoying and cause harm. Not only to the aesthetics of the building, but also damage to your exhaust fans from nesting material. Bird feces can carry over 60 transmittable diseases, including Salmonella, histoplasmosis, meningitis and encephalitis. They also carry fleas, ticks, lice and mites. If that isn’t bad enough, the highly acidic droppings can corrode building materials and can cause irreversible damage.
Invader #3: Rodents
Mice, rats, and other rodents are responsible for creating huge quantities of damage to products each year. Not only do rodents directly consume stored products, but more importantly they damage foods and packaging by gnawing and puncturing, plus contaminating the products with feces and other waste products. Rodents enter food storage and manufacturing plants in shipments or through holes and gaps that enable them to enter the structure. Therefore, the most important steps in dealing with rodent infestations are inspection, sanitation, and exclusion.
