Bed Bug Treatment for Care Homes and Assisted Living Facilities

Reports of “bed bug-infested care homes” in the UK have been all too common in recent years.

We all know how reputations are hard fought and easily lost. To lose your reputation due to a bed bug infestation may seem harsh but it is a reality that many care facilities and healthcare businesses face.

People rightly expect the highest standards of hygiene in care facilities and other clinical environments. This places them at high risk of reputational damage if they are perceived not to have met these standards. And social media ensures that bad news travels faster than ever before.

At ThermoPest, we specialise in bed bug heat treatment for care homes. We treat infestations discreetly, rapidly and affordably without the world knowing about them. 

One visit from our professional team is all that’s needed to eradicate bed bugs… and we can also take measures to prevent them from returning.

The bed bug problem in care homes…

Bed bugs will make themselves at home anywhere that there is human blood to feed on and a place to hide. They don’t care if the human host is elderly or infirm.

In fact, where people are bed-bound, this more or less guarantees a regular supply of food for bed bugs. That’s why care homes and assisted-living facilities are one of the most popular places in which to find bed bugs.

Bedbug infestations can occur simply because someone has recently been in a location and been exposed to bedbugs. They do not necessarily reflect the hygiene levels of your facility but the negative perceptions of patients, residents and family members toward the presence of bed bugs is likely to damage reputations.

Much depends on how you deal with an infestation and whether prompt, decisive and comprehensive action is taken. 

The best bed bug treatment for care homes…

Because bed bugs are such incredible hiders, it’s almost impossible to completely eradicate them using traditional measures like pesticides.

Chemical-based treatments are usually only partly effective because the bed bugs not in direct contact with the chemical may survive the treatment— and, besides, bed bugs have seemingly become resistant to some pesticides.

Heat treatment for bed bugs ensures there is no hiding place. The room temperature is heated to a level at which they cannot survive, killing the adult bugs, nymphs and eggs.

This comprehensive extermination means that the bed bugs will only return to a care home if they are re-introduced from outside by attaching to luggage, clothing, etc.

Should your care home suspect an infestation of bedbugs, the efforts of the ThermoPest team will be firmly focused on restoring your standard operational status as quickly as possible.

Eradication of bed bugs usually requires just ONE visit. In all but the largest care homes and assisted living facilities, we will complete the extermination in a single day.

Working discreetly from unmarked vans and in unmarked uniforms, our team uses specialist hear equipment that requires no visible presence outside the room(s) we work on.

There is nothing to “announce” the ongoing bed bug treatment, which helps protect your reputation. The speed at which we work also limits the disruption to your care business.

How to prevent bed bugs in care homes

Prompt action with any signs of an infestation is essential for care homes.

Educate staff on bed bugs. Train your people to check for the following tell-tale signs of a bed bug infestation:

  • Live bugs (swollen, well-fed bed bugs are highly visible but good hiders)
  • Blood spots on sheets and pillows
  • Pale, yellowish eggs or eggshells
  • Dark brown bed bug faecal matter

Care homes should perform regular inspections and isolate affected rooms if an infestation is suspected. The bugs can spread easily beyond one room.

Also, consider taking the following steps:

  • Proofing beds with mattress or box spring encasements and bed bug interceptors 
  • Regular and thorough cleaning of all areas
  • Investigating customer complaints effectively

Bed bugs are smart and casual inspections are rarely enough. Many infestations are missed.

ThermoPest provides monitoring and prevention services for businesses at high risk of bed bug infestations, like care homes.

Our team can help you protect your reputation with 4, 6 or 12 inspection visits per year.
