Pest Control in Schools and Universities


There are many areas in learning institutions such as schools, universities, private learning institutions, kindergartens and childcare centres that can harbour pests. Many institutions are of a significant size, with canteens, gyms and locker rooms a particularly conducive environment for pest infestation. Such are the potential issues, that the National Environment Agency has set out guidelines specifically for learning institutions.

It’s vitally important for schools and learning institutions to keep pests at bay, as children and younger people are much more susceptible to disease. They also work and play in close proximity to each other, which allows germs and bacteria to spread with ease. Schools and educational establishments also have canteens and cafeterias to cater for their pupils, so it is also vital that pest control procedures do not come into contact with food preparation areas.

The biggest potential pest problems within schools and educational establishments are mosquitoes, ants and cockroaches. These pests are particularly likely to harbour diseases and within a highly populated environment, the potential impacts could be disastrous. As schools and universities are usually have a lot of greenery, it is also common to find snakes making their way onto the premises.
