Keep your school clean, safe, and pest-free
Any educational facility should be somewhere students, staff and teachers feel safe. Hygiene is vital, but pest infestations can cause significant distress and disruption, while affecting the reputation of your school.
JPS Environmental can effectively and discreetly tackle any pest issue you face, whether on a one-off basis or through our annual pest management contracts. We'll help you keep the realities of pest control out of sight of your students, visiting out of hours and before the cleaners arrive to keep everything calm and clear.
Common Pests in Schools
The most common issues in schools are generally related to food. Rodents can be attracted to food stored on the premises, while cockroaches can become a problem for any building with a food service area.
Children often drop food and litter on the playground and in classrooms, and lockers can be home to crumbs and detritus that attract rodents, ants, and other pests.
Schools with playing fields and grassy areas sometimes have trouble with foxes, whose droppings need to be disposed of before they cause a health risk. Wasp nests and bee swarms in outdoor areas should be removed as soon as possible, to remove the risk of anyone being stung, especially in case of allergies.
Another potential source of pest control issues is children unknowingly transferring pests from home - fleas and bedbugs can travel on school backpacks and establish themselves at school.
