Integrated pest control service for hotels

Pest control is one of many aspects of hotel management. A hotel has to cope with local pests such as rodents, birds and mosquitoes. Also, there is an increase in international travel for certain pests, such as bed bugs, that travel in luggage. If left unchecked, they quickly infest a hotel. Fortunately there are methods to get rid of all of these unwelcome guests.

At HFC, we feel that pest control should be an integrated part of your hotel facility management. It is no use to keep exterminating pests. We focus on pest prevention in every possible way, starting with a thorough analysis of the premise and an in detail view of all hotel activities that can contribute to keeping pests at bay.


Most common pests for hotels

These pests can cause health issues and/or present a danger to your guests:

1: Rodents

Rodents such as rats and mice are quick to enter any place that provides them with food and shelter, especially in areas with cold winters. Rodents are harmful because they can carry bacteria and diseases, but also because they like to nibble. This way, rodents can cause health issues and damage to your premise, for example, by destroying electric wiring.

2: Birds

Singing birds might be a welcome addition to your hotel, but some other birds are better kept at bay. Birds, especially in flocks can be a nuisance and trouble your guests when they are trying to have a quiet morning, or a nice meal. Pigeons, jackdaws, starlings and geese are known to cause damage and leave unsanitary droppings. Also, nesting birds can be a problem for hotels with chimneys or air vents.

3: Insects

There are many types of insects that can cause problems in your hotel. Some are attracted to food and smells, such as cockroaches and flies, while others might consider building a nest in your premise (hornets, wasps and bees). Most insects have little impact on your guests, but some insects can really ruin their stay. Bed bugs and mosquitoes can be a disastrous end to a good night’s sleep and cause a lot of trouble for hotel owners.  


Discreet outbreak prevention

Pests are best controlled before they start causing problems. We pay special attention to preventive measures that make your hotel as unattractive as possible to pests. This includes a full sweep of your hotel as well as regular upkeep on the premises.

HFC provides pest control services 24 hours a day. Depending on the kind of work that needs to be done, we pick a time that least affects your guest’s experience.
