Pest Control for schools – Get a head of the class!
Here at Redline Pest Control we are fortunate to provide pest control for a few schools here in Sydney.
Did you know that schools are an ideal place for pests as there is an abundant supply of food for each pest that are lurking around.
With students eating their lunches both internally and in school grounds of the school it is very easy to get an outbreak from pests.
When a Redline Pest Control technicians visit your school a full, thorough inspection is carried out to identify any current pest issues, evidence of conditions that could potentially cause an infestation and how to implemented a pest treatment to avoid pest issues in the future.
Redline Pest Control will also work with you through our Integrated Pest Management system(IPM) to fight and eliminate against pest.
Common pests found in schools.
Before Redline Pest Control takes any action regarding pest management in your school we will meet with you to determine what pest species are currently active and causing an issue within the school. Here are some pests which are typically found in schools:
2. Bees and wasps
8. Creamy colour crickets
Pests will always find their new home in many different places in the school such as:
2. Gyms/sporting areas
5. Dumpers and trash bins
6. School ground
7. Staff rooms
Redline Pest Control will find the right Integrated pest management for your school.
Redline Pest Control follows an integrated pest management system. Before carrying out any treatment your dedicated pest technician will go around and source any problematic areas that pests tend to harbour.
Schools can also reduce the pest population by identifying what is causing a pest outbreak and eliminating the source that is attracting the pests.
By having preventive measures set in place you can reduce the pests or avoid the pests by simply following the steps below:
1. Move dumpsters containing food further away from school.
2. Seal all cracks, crevices, and wall voids.
3. Restrict eating food to cafeterias.
4. Repair and remove all leaking pipes in and around the school.
5. Institute strict sanitation measures for everyone to follow.
6. Clean all gutters and redirect water flow away from school buildings to reduce moisture.
7. Educate students and employees on how to reduce the risk of pests by throwing any food scraps away in appropriate bins.
The pests which are usually encountered at schools may have the potential to spread diseases. These pests are cockroaches, rodents, and birds.
Redline Pest Control values IPM (Integrated Pest Management) and identifies the pest issues thoroughly on arrival for your pest treatment. What we suggest is that you keep a record of pest problems at the school indicating what pests you are experiencing and where the pest was seen each time. By having a pest sighting sheet available for staff they are able to log the date, time and where they are seeing the pests in and around your school.
