Updated: Jan 26, 2022

vicinity. pests within the structure and pests brought into the facility by visitors or staff

problems. Acuity Pest Control provides the best Hospital pest control in Bangalore.





Problematic pests in Hospitals

While there are several explanations why secondary infections occur in health care

facilities, certain bugs bring bacteria to their bodies, which can directly or indirectly

impact patients either by close interaction or by contamination of devices, materials, and

surfaces in various areas of the facility. Acuity Pest Control provides the best Hospital

pest control in Bangalore.

The following pests present in healthcare creates the highest health risks:



Cockroach Pest control

Cockroaches spread almost 33 different kinds of bacteria, six kinds of parasitic worms,

and at least seven other types of human pathogens.

As vectors for disease, cockroaches often carry bacteria such as Escherichia coli and

Salmonella on their bodies, which not only contaminate food, cooking equipment, and

food preparation surfaces but also compromise the sterile environment of the operating

rooms and the cleanliness of the examination rooms and the patient rooms.


Cockroaches are also responsible for increasing the severity of asthma and indoor

allergy symptoms, especially in children and the elderly.

Cockroaches are most likely to be located in lockers and dressing facilities, washing

quarters, wardrobes, food service areas, restaurants, and snack bars, vending machine

areas, grocery carts, floor drains, and toilets, intensive care units (ICUs), kidney dialysis,

and autopsy facilities, as well as loading docks and garbage disposal areas.

Rodent Pest control



Rodents can infiltrate buildings through almost any gap or crack larger than a dime.

Once inside, rodents can cause structural damage as they can chew through

wallboards, cardboard, wood and plaster, and electrical wiring, increasing the potential

risk of fire.

Rats defect constantly and may quickly contaminate any grain and grain storage

surfaces. Facilities professionals must inspect rodent drops, especially in undisturbed

areas such as cafeteria stores, storage areas, and along walls.

Rodents are typically found in laundry rooms, food service areas, food carts, docks, and

garbage disposal areas.


​Ants Pest Control

Ants are insects of society. Thus, the sighting of an ant indicates that many live in close

quarters. Although ants can contaminate food and food surfaces, the species of ant that

is most dangerous in health care settings is the pharaoh ant.

These ants can spread more than a dozen pathogens, including Salmonella and

Streptococcus pathogens, and are problematic due to their attraction to intravenous

units, medical preparations, and open wounds. Ants can be found in a wide range of

laundry areas, ICUs, renal dialysis, and autopsy rooms.

Having garbage receptacles locked and as safe as practicable, collecting waste

regularly, and maintaining feeding areas healthy and clear of food contamination go a

long way to keeping these nasty pests away.

They can be found in almost every part of the health care facility, including food service

areas, food carts, ICUs and surgical suites, autopsy rooms, laundry rooms, dock

loading, and garbage disposal areas.



Bedbugs Pest Control

Bedbugs have undergone a huge return in the past two decades. A 2013 survey

conducted by the National Pest Management Association and the University of

Kentucky found that 33% of pest control professionals treated bedbugs in hospitals,

while 46% did so in nursing homes.

Although bedbugs are not considered to be vectors of disease, their bites can leave

itchy, red welds and their presence can cause anxiety and sleeplessness.

In certain cases, patients can also develop a secondary infection triggered by a bite

wounds and skin damage, which may lead to a port of entry for infection.

Because bedbugs and their eggs are hitchhiked in bags, shoes, and people, they can

easily be brought to a health care facility. Bedbugs are most often found in inpatient

room beds, waiting room chairs, and laundry services.
