“Going to school” is supposed to be an adventure for children but not because pests and rodents share their classroom. The presence of pests and rodents in schools can seriously affect the health of both students and teachers, which makes professional pest control essential to providing a safe learning environment.
Although a “hot” topic for parents and educators, IPM (Integrated Pest Management) in schools is rarely understood. Common sense and sound solutions are the foundation for IPM, and where children’s health is concerned, these are critical. IPM practices in schools focus upon 1) inspection, 2) identification and 3) treatment by EHS service specialists.
IPM is a more holistic approach to pest control, as treatments are based on each school’s unique needs. EHS does not use a "one size fits all" approach in IPM but rather the best treatment for your particular pest problem. Whether it is sealing cracks, removing a food or water source or, when necessary, employing pesticide treatments, IPM is about individual and comprehensive treatment of pest problems.
