The most successful pest management programs use a combination of pest-proofing techniques aimed at prevention, recognition and suppression. The program requires the services of a qualified pest management firm as well as input and participation from health care staff.

This means cleaning, building maintenance and exclusion play a key role in keeping pests out or becoming established.
