Ants lead survey list for most challenging pest in healthcare

Orkin and the Association for the Healthcare Environment have released a survey that says the most challenging pests for healthcare facilities are ants, flies, roaches and bed bugs.
 

Respondents have said ants are the top pest over the past four years. Similarly to 2012, one in four respondents have said they've had a bed bug infestation.

 
AHE and Orkin are offering a complimentary four-week online Integrated Pest Management training course worth four Continuing Professional Education credits. The course begins in November and is free for AHE members. Registration is at http://www.ahe.org.
