Nursing home administrators agree that providing a healthy environment for residents is a top priority. Keeping insects, rodents, and other pests out, of course, is part of that mission. Insect and Rodent attacks in long-term care facilities in recent years have made the public and industry insiders all too aware that pests can pose a very real threat to residents. Pests also threaten nursing homes themselves. Negative publicity from an infestation can ruin a facility's reputation, and multimillion-dollar lawsuits can put the business on the line.
