Schools Pest Control

Protecting Schools and Universities Against Pests

Kitchens, dining halls, and playgrounds provide a conducive breeding environment for pests in schools and universities. They can make learning for students very uncomfortable. A pest infestation can cause panic among staff and students while also destroying school property. Pests have to be banished completely from schools and universities. 

As a school owner or manager, especially in boarding schools, it is important to take the health of your staff and learners into consideration and work fast to counter pest infestations. 

Pest Control Process

1. Contact

Education facilities are expected to call or email pest control experts immediately they notice even the smallest sign of an infestation. Pest infestations can spread very fast around the school due to increased interaction. Once they spread, pests can be harder to control, considering the size of the school. Our technician will visit the school and check out the situation. 

2. Inspections

After contacting us, we’ll schedule an onsite visit to assess the situation. This service includes identifying the type of pests around the school and their possible methods to control the pests.

3. Treatment

After assessing the situation and identifying the pests, we’ll then come ready to treat them. Chemical treatment works best in large-scale treatment. We’ll heavily treat infested areas including corners, drawers and dining areas. We pay special attention to these zones to ensure that pests do not come back to the school or university. Hostels should be treated carefully because they’re hotspots of pest infestation. After treatment, it could take some time before the school can resume its day to day activities. It is important to carry out this service when students are on holiday.

Pests can establish infestations very quickly in schools. By the time you notice them, they have already caused more structural damage than you thought. Also, pests create unsanitary conditions in schools which is detrimental to children.
