Professional Aged Care Pest Control – Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast

Professional Aged Care Pest Control Services – Brisbane, Gold Coast And Sunshine Coast

At Suburban Pest Management, we understand the critical importance of maintaining a safe and hygienic environment within aged care facilities. Our goal is to control pests and keep the facility pest-free for the health of elderly residents and staff alike.

At Suburban Pest Management, we can help you achieve this goal with quality effective pest control services. We don't just react to an infestation; we take a proactive approach to reduce risks before they become a problem. We can help you with: 

  • Integrated pest management
  • Providing a safe and hygienic environment for residents
  • Pest and vermin control
  • Eliminating potential hazards
  • Best practice pest control policies and procedures

What Is Integrated Pest Management?

An integrated pest management plan (IPM) is a long-term pest management strategy with the environment in mind. It combines minimum pesticides with pest behavioural data to reduce risk to people, property, and the environment by the most efficient means.

As part of our approach to integrated pest management, we work with you to:

  • Identify the safest and most economical methods for pest and vermin control.
  • Organise regular inspections to audit and review pest control methods.
  • Observe pest behaviour and levels with electronic monitoring stations.
  • Assist with record keeping.
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of your pest management plan.

Best Practice Pest Control Policies and Procedures

Suburban uses comprehensive inspection methods, treatments and rechecks to keep your centre pest and vermin free. We only employ best practices in pest control policies and procedures.

A pest inspection will provide you with a thorough assessment. The report lists problem areas with recommendations for pest control and compares the effectiveness of different treatment options.

When we investigate, we look at the conditions that attract and harbour pests, and we recommend changes, which might include changes to cleaning practices, pest proofing buildings, and alternative methods of pest control.

On arrival, we provide the centre with an onsite folder. This is a record book that logs our visits and what we do on site. It also contains information on monthly or quarterly treatments and a rundown of pest sightings. We encourage centre staff to log any sightings in the folder.

Also included in the folder is an on-site service report. It lists the types of pests we're treating, such as cockroaches or spiders, and contains a chemical log sheet. As well, the folder includes a certificate of currency from our insurance provider.

After we've made our assessment, we'll decide what pest treatment solutions to use. We provide Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) or copies of product labels for any chemicals or products we have used on request.

All our service technicians carry Queensland pest management technician licenses; they are insured, and all have completed a National Police Check.

A Safe and Hygienic Environment for Residents

We use pest control methods which are effective on pests but safe for humans.

We have a commitment to sustainable pest control. We use pesticides which have minimal impact on the environment, and we use safe pest management practices to maintain a safe and hygienic environment for your residents and staff.

We also employ a wide range of non-chemical methods which help with prevention and reduce the need to use pesticides.

Common Pests We Treat at Aged Care Facilities

Over the many years we have been treating Aged Care facilities in South-East Queensland, we’ve collected comprehensive information on pest control. The pests most likely to affect aged care centres are:

Cockroaches – They can spread disease and can cause diarrhea, allergic reactions, and asthma. That’s some serious stuff. They often live in groups and during the day will hide in boxes, cracks, electronic devices, drains and sewers.

Spiders – Some can jump and bite. Some spiders are more harmful to humans than others; some inject toxins that can be fatal if left untreated. Some have fangs which give a painful sting which can cause local swelling.

Rodents – They destroy property, carry and spread diseases. Brisbane has two common types of pest rats, the Norway rat and the smaller grey or black, Roof Rat.

Flies - While it’s an Aussie custom to learn the salute at an early age, we want to minimise contact with the common house fly. They visit places like rubbish tips and sewerage works, and they also like to drink our sweat. Fermentation flies are common in commercial facilities – they are attracted to the yeast associated with rotting fruit.

Ants – Some bite and some bite multiple times. They carry away food scraps. There are thousands of different ant varieties with black ants being the most common. They may seem harmless, but a severe ant infestation can cause property damage.

Termites – They can be an issue in aged care sites. It all depends on the building design, construction materials, building age, and other internal and external factors including frequency of termite inspections and treatments.
