Emergency pest control

Aged care facilities are susceptible to pest infestations due to their wide-ranging facilities, including food preparation, bedrooms, bathrooms, and waste collection areas. And once pests enter an aged care facility, they can quickly cause health and safety issues, as well as legal problems.

With vulnerable people at risk of disease and intensely observed legislative requirements, keeping on top of pest control in aged care is essential.

Fortunately, Allstate’s Routine Pest Prevention Program monitors, controls and prevents pests with minimal disruption to the facility’s operations. We use integrated pest management –a prevention-first approach that considers your unique facility and environment to keep your premises pest-free and your staff and residents healthy.

Integrated pest management

Integrated pest management is a proactive form of pest management. It works by using expert pest behaviour knowledge and modern methods to control pests with minimal safety risk and environmental impact. As vulnerable residents’ safety is essential, an integrated pest management strategy is the optimal solution for aged care.
At Allstate, our Routine Pest Program is at the leading edge of integrated pest management in Adelaide. This program provides highly effective, safe, and long-term pest control in aged care settings through four simple steps.

Step 1: Pest Inspection

Your Allstate pest control technician will thoroughly inspect your facility and surrounding area to understand your unique needs, including:

  • The layout and design of buildings
  • Daily operations (including receiving and storage of supplies, sanitisation, and food prep)
  • Locating potential pest entry points and dwelling areas
  • Analysing previous pest reports
  • Examining the local environment for additional risk factors

Step 2: Pest Control Officer & Team

A strong understanding of your aged care facility is crucial to successful pest management. Once your inspection is completed, Allstate will assign you a dedicated pest control officer and team, who will stay up to date on your strategy.

Step 3: Personalised Program

With the information gained from your initial inspection, your Allstate pest control team will create a pest prevention program. This program will be unique to your facility’s circumstances and needs.

It can include:

  • Building and maintenance exclusion practices
  • Guidance and information on maintenance and sanitation for staff
  • Advice for suppliers entering the premises
  • Information on future pest inspections
  • Control methods
  • Advice for managing the surrounding natural environment to reduce risk

Step 4: Allstate Online Access
