Pest Control in Schools

  • Whether it’s a preschool or a college, the presence of pests means distracted students. It also comprises their health. This means a potential blow to your institution’s reputation, which could possibly affect enrollment.
  • Some of the most common school pests include mice, rats, flies, cockroaches, spiders, ants, and more.
  • Integrated pest management (IPM) has become the go-to method for safe, eco-friendly pest prevention in schools as well as other commercial establishments. This practice focuses on prevention and encourages pest professionals to only use chemical pesticides when necessary. The three steps of IPM include inspection, monitoring, and reports. This basically means that the exterminator inspects the premises and treats for the pest infestation (often by using alternative treatments to poison). The exterminator then monitors the progress, and returns on a regular basis to ensure that the pests in question are no longer active.
  • Get everyone on board with stating pest-free! It takes everyone in the building to cooperate. Ask the students and faculty to avoid making/leaving messes and the janitorial staff to be extra vigilant about keeping the school clean.
