Safeguarding Patients' Health Against Pests
BUSINESS IMPACT OF PESTS
CROSS-CONTAMINATION AND SECONDARY INFECTION OF PATIENTS
Pests carry pathogens and can mechanically transmit directly to humans or indirectly to surfaces which humans then come in to contact with. The risk of healthcare associated infections (HCAI) is high, if robust pest control measures are not in place and hygiene standards maintained.
Pests contaminate food by damaging food packaging, and by touching, eating and defecating on uncovered food, which leaves it no longer fit for human consumption.
The ultimate danger and cost is a destructive fire, which can be caused by rodents gnawing through cables.

COMMON ISSUES FOR HOSPITALS
Javelin’s Superheated Dry Steam Treatment is able to deliver complete removal of a bed bug infestation in one session, making it ideal for busy hospitals. Steam produced during the treatment eliminates all stages of a bed bug’s life cycle, from eggs to adults, and can be delivered in the presence of people. Wards do not have to be closed for treatment, so vital care can continue uninterrupted.
This treatment comes with a 1 – 6 month warranty depending on what you require. If bed bugs re-infest the treated rooms within that period, Javelin Services will return, free of charge, to eliminate the infestation.
ANTS and COCKROACHES.
After a detailed inspection, a combination of IRS (Internal Residual Spraying) and IGB (Insecticidal Gel Baiting) treatment would be administered to eliminate the infestation as quickly as possible. Post treatment, monitoring devices will be deployed where necessary to monitor activity and to detect a re-infestation at as early a stage as possible.
KITCHENS AND CANTEEN AREAS
Cockroaches, ants, flies and rodents are the main pests affecting kitchens and canteen areas, attracted by food spillages, food scraps, water leaks and light.
With an Integrated Pest Management approach, your Javelin service team will detect, assess, treat and monitor any pests for long-term protection. We use a range of tailored solutions, including hygiene and proofing advice, spraying and gelling with targeted applications to avoid the risk of surface contamination and patient health issues.

Our Insect Light Traps (ILT’s) have been designed to be hygienic and to meet all legal and health and safety requirements. ILT’s use glue boards to trap flies that remain attached to the glue board. There is no risk of food contamination and tests have shown that glue boards catch flies 100% faster than the Electric Fly Killer units.
The application of anticoagulant rodenticides in secured bait boxes and/or snap-back traps and sticky boards along the hospital’s perimeter fence, exterior walls and interior areas (where appropriate) to safely achieve rapid reduction in rodent numbers.
Keeping pests out of these areas is critical given the potential for cross-contamination and secondary infections. Your Javelin service team will detect, assess, treat and monitor pests in these areas, using the most targeted applications to avoid the risk of contamination and patient health issues.
Solutions for outside spaces can be both targeted and comprehensive. Our surveyors will be happy to discuss options and budgets and come up with the most appropriate solution to fit your needs.
We have a number of different solutions for mosquitoes including thermal fogging, larviciding and ULV treatment. For outside areas, a combination of thermal fogging at peak activity times, ULV treatment and larviciding will be administered to target all stages of the mosquitoes life cycle.

Our Insect Light Traps (ILT’s) have been designed to be hygienic and to meet all legal and health and safety requirements, as they use glue boards to trap flies rather than electric grills.
With ILT’s, there is no risk of the spreading of pathogenic material and tests have shown that glue boards catch flies 100% faster than traditional Electric Fly Killer units. ILT’s are silent in operation, capturing and killing flies discreetly, so that patients and medical staff aren’t disturbed by buzzing and zapping sounds.
Whatever your issue, we have trained professionals that are able to safely and effectively treat all common pests.
Please call us with any situations that need addressing and we will be only too happy to help.
For specific pests, please see our pest library for more information.
Excellent and very professional service. They offer child safe services that we did not find with other companies. Very reasonably priced, we would certainly recommend them to family and friends.

It’s a pleasure to work with Javelin Services. They advised us on what we can do on our end, e.g. keeping areas free of places for pests to live and breed. I can pick up the phone whenever there’s a problem and they’re right on it. They’re obsessive when it comes to pests which means I don’t have to be and can get on with running my restaurant.
We now have tailor made package focused on keeping the building secure, monitoring pest activity using baits, traps and gel, and spraying regularly for mosquitos and other preventative measures. I receive a detailed report after each scheduled visit and I am pleased to say we have been remained pest free since.

“I engaged Javelin pest control services after recently moving into a new hallway style apartment in Yangon that had an ant problem on the 6th floor and concerns of a cockroach issue. The team came to evaluate and for a very reasonable price I now have received 2 treatments as part of an annual course and have yet to see another pest near my apartment! I’ve witnessed the ant trail start leading across my balcony wall as they cannot penetrate the chemical barrier laid down by the guys at Javelin! Staff are also very quick and professional, leaving no part untreated but causing no mess or fuss in the process. Highly recommend!

Javelin Services delivered an outstanding service at an extremely reasonable price. When we had a stubborn cockroach problem they arrived the next day, performed the service quickly with chemicals that were odourless and invisible and checked back in a few weeks later to make sure the pests hadn’t returned (they hadn’t). We’ve been recommending them to anyone looking for pest control since then.
