We’re dedicated to the success of your hotel by ensuring a pest-free environment, providing thorough documentation, and rapid emergency response.
Landmark’s research-based approach is more effective than traditional pest control, and reduces pesticide exposure for your staff and guests. We eliminate what pests need to survive and apply our products to target pests at their source. When Bed bugs or other emergencies threaten your reputation, we respond quickly to resolve the problem and keep your business running.
Don’t Let the Bed Bugs Bite
The number of people with Bed bug infestations at home is increasing and when those guests check in, their Bed bugs check in too. That’s why we offer the most comprehensive response to Bed bugs in our industry. Our discrete rapid response is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Our treatment protocol is informed by the latest scientific studies and is proven effective through private field research. Our success rate is second to none so you can rest assured.
You’re covered 24/7/365
Landmark’s Integrated Pest Management program reduces reliance on pesticides by delivering research-based green technologies and targeted methods that eliminate what pests need to survive.
We ensure a clean, pest-free environment with 24-hour monitoring designed to detect emerging issues before they become a problem. If you need a biologist in the middle of the night, our discrete rapid response can have a technician to you in as little as one hour. We respond 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Is Your Restaurant Inspection Ready?
Landmark’s Integrated Pest Management program for food service goes beyond kitchen control to include structural improvements to prevent pests from ever entering your facility.
We ensure compliance with food safety audits and tailor every Integrated Pest Management program to ensure your food service will be inspection ready.
Landmark ensures compliance with food safety audits, government regulations, and GFSI and FSMA guidelines. Whatever your site’s unique requirements, Landmark tailors every Integrated Pest Management program to your auditing criteria to ensure your facility is inspection ready.
Detailed Reporting to Improve Operations
Each report contains a detailed analysis of sanitation conditions, structural deficiencies, and practices that can be undertaken to reduce pests. We identify conditions that support pests including cleaning practices, trash removal, condensation areas, and organic debris. Then, we partner with you to eliminate the conditions that support pests.
Seal Mice Out
The best way to prevent infestation is to keep pests from entering in the first place. That’s why Landmark is more than a pest control company, we’re a pest exclusion company. Our team identifies the points in your building that are allowing pests to enter and seals pests out to ensure they can’t get in. Our exclusion work is fully warrantied.
Mice can enter through holes as small as a ¼ inch, and they carry diseases that put your business at risk of failing inspections. Landmark performs comprehensive inspections to identify the signs that mice leave behind. We work with you to eliminate the sanitation issues caused by rodents. We locate every hole where pests enter and seal them out to ensure you’ll be inspection ready.
DNA Testing for Bed Bugs in Hotels in Illinois
Landmark utilizes a technique called PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) for the study of bed bug DNA. We swab your surface and then submit the sample to the lab. If the test indicates a “positive” result, that means conclusively that bed bugs either are or have been present in the past year. Other insects such as cockroaches, ants, and fleas have a different DNA signature and cannot be mistaken for bed bug DNA in this test. A “false-positive” result is not possible with this process and all positive results indicate the presence of bed bug DNA. We can have your results to you in 72 hours.
Prior to the invention of PCR, significant amounts of a sample were necessary for molecular and genetic analyses, and studies of isolated pieces of DNA were nearly impossible without PCR amplification. Our laboratory can amplify or copy the sample until there is a readable volume. The sample is first heated so the DNA denatures, or separates and an enzyme called “Taq polymerase” enables each of these strands to create two new copies, and so on, and so on. This process is conducted by a machine called a thermocycler and is completed in only a few hours.
