I would think that even the staunchest doubter in the world might at least start to believe there was a problem with rodents when the 500th sighting was reported(and that was in one week). Apparently a nursing home in Queensland Australia was waiting for number 501 and then for sure they were going to do something about it.
In my little corner of the world I can’t imagine ever letting something like this go by. We service some very large nursing homes and I think I drive my guys nuts when a call comes in for ants or a rogue rat. We have a system in place that is checked almost daily by facility staff and if any trends occur a call is put in to me. Usually long before that happens my technician who also checks the logs with each service has the problem inspected, treated, logged and sanitation recommendations are made if any are needed.
Now I’m not even on the top 10,000 list as far as pest control companies go but even a small fry like me knows you need to treat our senior citizens better than this. If you’d like to see how a company who is in the top 5 reacted check out his story and imagine if that was your loved one. Perhaps this is how they got to be such a prominent company and leaders in the industry. See how this kind of problem can be avoided with their sophisticated tracking log. It takes about 30 seconds to load but it’s worth the wait. Maybe this nursing home should consider a bid from Rentokil so this will not happen again.
Does this outrage you? If so leave a comment and share your thoughts.
