Pest Control for Schools
Schools are an ideal habitat for pests. That's because of the sufficient supply of water, warmth, food and a safe shelter where pests can raise their young ones. These intruders pose serious health and safety risks for students, teachers and cause insurmountable structural damages.
Effective school pest control in Singapore requires a thorough understanding of the unique pest management challenges within the education environment. Our school pest removal and protection involves using an integrated pest management approach to avoid relying on chemical treatments. Using a combination of safe, non-toxic solutions, we effectively get rid of any pest invasions.
All treatments begin with a comprehensive inspection of the entire premises to determine why the pests are there in the first place and discover their entry points. From these findings, we'll customize the best pest management program that will effectively meet your schools' needs while preventing reoccurrences.
Pests in Schools
Numerous types of pests seem to have a preference for the school environment. However, the main course of concern to schools includes bed bugs, flies, lice, bees, wasps, mosquitoes, rodents and termites.
Bed Bugs in Schools
Bed bugs are not known for spreading diseases. But their bites are itchy and can trigger an allergic reaction in some victims, requiring medical attention. Their presence can also cause distress and anxiety, thereby disrupting school activities.
Controlling Bed Bugs in Schools
We will assign an expert to do a thorough inspection to determine the source of the infestation and bed bug hiding spots within the school property. They will then customize the most effective course of treatment that will combat the pests and provide continued protection from future problems.
Instant killing pesticides: As part of our IPM, our experts will treat all potential bed bug hiding spots using the best bed bug treatments with a fast-knock down effect. The treatment is non-toxic and provides long-term residue protection from future re-infestations.
Ants in Schools
When ants infest school premises, they can cause severe structural damages by building their nests inside walls and in any structure voids. Some ant species will bite and inject formic acid into students, causing painful welts and allergic reactions.
Controlling Ants in Schools
Once our expert determines the exact species of ant causing trouble and the level of the infestation, they tailor an effective treatment plan that safely exterminates and provides long-term protection from future invasion threats.
Gel baiting: spot treatment using a highly effective ant attractant with non-repellent active ingredients. The treatment is specifically applied in areas with ant activity and ant pathways. Upon constant, the infected ant will carry the solution back to the nest and infect the rest of the colony.
Residual spraying: an environmentally safe treatment is sprayed on targeted areas to exterminate and provide continued protection.
Flies in Schools
There are many species of flies that can infest schools in Singapore. Flies are well known for carrying and transmitting numerous diseases. Because they breed and feed on animal waste, carcasses, and garbage, flies will carry bacteria and viruses and deposit them in human foods.
Controlling Flies in Schools
The most effective fly extermination method is first determining their source and factors attracting them to the school premises. Upon a thorough inspection, our trained technician will recommend the most effective treatment plan focused on exterminating and protecting the premises from chances of re-infestations.
Granule treatments: this method involves placing carbon bait boxes strategically in areas where the flies frequent, like around the sinks and cabinets. The insects die upon bait consumption.
Residual Spraying: a safe pesticide solution is sprayed directly on the flies activity areas to eliminate and prevent re-infestations.
Flying insect control traps: we strategically position the latest and highly reliable units such as light traps in specific areas to attract and kill the flies for complete extermination.
Cockroaches in Schools
Cockroaches are ever in search of food, water, and a safe place to breed. Unfortunately, a school facility avails all these factors in abundance, making canteens/cafeterias and kitchens an ideal target for an infestation. The presence of these undesirable pests and their droppings, eggs, saliva, and shells can trigger asthma attacks and allergies in children and even adults. They also spread diseases like salmonella and streptococcus by depositing disease-causing microorganisms on foods and beverages.
Controlling Cockroaches in Schools
The school management is responsible for keeping students and staff safe from the health risks posed by cockroaches. When roaches infest schools, they hide in locker areas, desks and in the cracks and crevices on walls. These notorious pests spread rapidly and will travel to the kitchen counters, foods, cooking utensils, and even plates.
Effective cockroach control in schools begins with a thorough inspection, supported by continuous monitoring to keep the unsightly pests away. As part of our IPM, our experts will guide the students and staff on the best ways to keep cockroaches away from schools in Singapore.
Gel baiting: Our pest expert will pinpoint areas of heavy infestation and where roaches frequent like in cracks and wall voids. They will place small, effective and non-toxic bait dots in these areas. Once the pests get in contact with the bait, they carry it back to their source, thereby infecting and killing the entire colony.
Non-toxic Residual Spraying: Using an environmentally safe and highly effective solution, we spray targeted areas to control the pests. The treatment also acts as a chemical barrier to protect the school from future pest problems.
Rodents in Schools
Rodents are disease carriers and have been reported to spread more than 30 types of illnesses, including hantavirus and Tularemia. They spread these diseases through bites and contact with their saliva, droppings, and urine.
Controlling Rodents In Schools
Our integrated pest management for rodents in schools begins with a thorough inspection of the entire facility. We'll then customize a treatment plan that will exterminate and keep the pests away long-term.
Rodent traps: traps are stealthily designed to fit in activity areas. They are equipped with a monitor that indicates once a rodent is trapped. The pest is humanely disposed of thereafter.
Bait stations: tamper-resistant bait stations are highly attractive to rodents. They trap and kill the pests upon bait consumption. Bait stations are highly secured so that children and non-target pests cannot access the bait.
