Common Pests in Schools
Pests are particularly fond of schools for several reasons—plenty of room, food storage, and garbage. Further, the constant human traffic gives some pests an excellent opportunity to hitch a ride home with a student in their clothes or backpacks.
Here is a list of some of the more common pests we find in schools:
- Ants are among the most commonly encountered pest issues in Raleigh schools. Carpenter ants are the most severe pest threat, as they can damage wood and insulation. Other types of ants, such as pavement ants and odorous house ants, are mainly nuisance pests.
- Cockroaches can be found in schools, especially near food storage areas. They contaminate surfaces with their droppings and spread germs, so taking swift action against any cockroach issues is vital.
- Spiders, while mostly harmless, can be a pest problem if they become abundant. Their webs can also contribute to pest problems by providing shelter for other pests like mosquitoes and rodents.
- Rodents are another pest problem that can occur in schools. Rats and mice will often seek out food sources in schools and contaminate them with their droppings and urine.
- Bedbugs can also be a pest problem in schools, particularly if students bring them in on clothes or backpacks. These pests feed off blood, so it’s crucial to take action against bed bug infestations quickly to prevent them from becoming too large.
Regardless of the pest you are dealing with, we can help. Our team is highly experienced in dealing with pest infestations of all types and sizes and will resolve the problem quickly and discreetly.
We understand that the term “pest control” can set off alarm bells for some people. The history of the pest control industry is littered with chemical treatments that have been harmful to humans, so it is only natural to experience some trepidation when considering a large-scale pest control project at a location where children and teens gather in large numbers.
We are here to tell you that the days of harmful chemicals are a thing of the past. Our team at Pest and Termite Consultants only uses safe, eco-friendly pest control treatments, so you can rest easy knowing that the health of your staff and students is in good hands.
Some of the treatments we use in dealing with pest infestations include:
- Bait Stations: Bait stations are pest control devices used to control pest infestation in schools. They work by attracting pest creatures, such as rats and mice, and trapping them within the station so they can’t escape or cause further damage.
- Borate Treatments: Borate treatments are pest control treatments that involve using borates to kill pests. A borate is a compound of boron, oxygen, and hydrogen atoms. When these compounds come into contact with pests, they disable their metabolic processes, killing or paralyzing them. This pest control method is preferred in schools due to its low toxicity to humans and other mammals.
- Liquid Non-Repellants: Liquid non-repellant treatments are pest control solutions applied in liquid form. Liquid non-repellant treatments are particularly effective in schools, as they are less visible to pests than other treatments and do not emit offensive odors or fumes.
Furthermore, liquid non-repellent pest control treatments can provide long-lasting protection against infestations.
- Foam Treatments: Foam treatments are pest control methods that involve using a foam pest control product to eliminate pest infestations. This method of pest control is highly effective as it creates a barrier between the pest and their nest, which helps to eliminate them quickly and safely. Foam treatments are also an environmentally friendly pest control option as they are non-toxic and do not leave any harmful residues behind. They are also less disruptive to the school environment. Additionally, foam treatments are cost-effective.
- Liquid Barrier Treatments: This type of pest control method uses liquid insecticides and other pest repellents to create a physical barrier around the perimeter of your school. These barriers keep out a wide range of pests, from tiny insects, such as ants and termites, to larger pests, such as rats and mice. The liquid barrier pest control method is an effective way to keep out unwanted visitors while protecting the safety of students and staff members.
In addition to pest prevention, liquid barrier treatments can also reduce pest populations already in the area by killing those that come into contact with it.
