Scientific Pest Management has provided responsive and programmed pest management services across Australia for over 40 years.

We understand that our senior citizens in aged care facilities are susceptible and vulnerable to increased infections and other symptoms as they get older.

Other than hygiene and sanitary being the obvious practices that can be adopted in aged care facilities, pest management is just as crucial.

We provide both audit and compliance services to aged care facilities. Our tailored services include but not limited to:

  • Understanding the entire premises, including the operating rooms, kitchens, restrooms patient rooms and other rooms along with the building design to identify entry/hiding areas of pests
  • Inspection of transport vehicles and equipment/carts and loading docks
  • Understanding the distribution chain
  • Advice on good housekeeping and hygiene practices
  • Pest management inspections and monitoring
  • Physical control methods
  • Chemical control methods
  • Habitat/environment management

We do not provide the same strategy for each client – we actually understand your business, its demands, the premises along with the environment and locations, client industries and businesses etc. as no aged care facility is the same. We then tailor a pest management strategy around that. Also, your pest management strategy will evolve and change due to seasons along with different changes in the local environment, customers, sub-contractors and distribution routes.

Common pests faced within the Aged Care Industry

Aged care facilities store food, medicine and other items that pest survive and thrive on. These are some of the pests that are found within aged care facilities:

How we deal with Pests

Our staff are highly trained to carry out an audit of your premises. They treat every premise that they visit differently and tailor a programmed pest plan to suit the environmental factors, including seasons. We use technology as our helping hand to monitor and track incidents or to make changes to your bait stations in real-time. Your account manager and technician are then alerted in real-time in order to investigate any issues just in case any issues arise in between scheduled programmed maintenances. You will then be provided with reports for your own purposes along with providing those reports to your customers.

Standards and Compliance

Whilst structuring your pest management strategy, we will also understand your micro-business needs which includes legal, industry and business requirements that you need to achieve. For example, our practices can meet HACCP, AQIS, FSANZ standards and Health Department regulations. We can also adapt the compliance to suit you as well.
