Commercial Pest Control For Schools and Universities
Everyone knows how important pest control is for the home. And business owners know how important it is for their employees and customers. Why then, should schools be any different? High-quality pest control is every bit as important for an academic environment as it is for your home or business, and Eco Serve is here to help with any pest issue in your way.

Why Do Schools Need Professional Pest Control?
You want your home and business to be relaxing, clean environments. That way, you, your family, and your customers can feel safe and at peace. An educational environment should be no different. Students, teachers, and support staff need a clean and pest-free environment to work and learn in. After all, managing a classroom or taking a test is hard enough without bugs crawling all over the classroom!
A few reasons why commercial pest control is particularly important for schools and universities and why Eco Serve can help include:
Maintaining a Healthy Environment
We touched on it already but it’s worth repeating. Given the sheer number of people who pass through the doors of any academic institution on a given day, maintaining cleanliness is absolutely critical. Pests are opportunistic and if, for example, bed bugs, establish a standing population in your school, the likelihood of them hitching a ride home with a student and spreading infestation throughout the community is high. An unclean, pest-filled setting simply isn’t conducive to either teaching or learning. This is particularly important in an elementary school attended by younger students with developing immune systems. When you trust Eco Serve, our family values and personalized service mean you aren't another task to check off. We care about our community and keeping students healthy and safe, no matter which pest is in the way.
Limiting Liability & Defending Your Reputation The Eco Serve Way
A pest infestation can also open your institution up to a whole host of liabilities. Pests like cockroaches and rodents can trigger allergies and spread disease. If your school is found to have not made a reasonable effort to control and resolve an infestation, you can be held responsible. In that regard, getting proper commercial pest control is essential to protecting students, teachers, and the school all at once! When you work with Eco Serve, we care about keeping your reputation clean by offering rapid response time, quality control with up-to-date methods, and streamlined reports to keep you in the loop with our process.
20+ Years of Ensuring Long Term Stability
In most municipalities, a severe pest outbreak in a school or public university can be accompanied by significant financial or legal penalties. In some cases, those can be severe enough to shut a school down! Legal ramifications aside, if your school or university develops a reputation for being unclean, it won’t take long for teachers to leave for new jobs and parents to send their kids elsewhere. Either way, the outcome can be the same. Don’t risk it and take the essential step of protecting the long term viability of your school with a dependable commercial pest control plan! With our 20+ years of exterminating pests, Eco Serve has what it takes to eliminate all pests and ensure your school is safe for everyone. The common pests in schools or universities we will take care of include:
- Bed Bugs
- And more
How Can I Minimize the Likelihood of an Infestation?
While a professional commercial pest control provider is the best way to go, there are steps you and your maintenance staff can take to - at the very least - minimize the likelihood of an infestation. Eco Serve has a quick guide of what you can do to minimize an infestation, including:
- Restricting food consumption to designated areas such as the cafeteria.
- Establishing a minimum distance between dumpsters and the main school building.
- Regularly emptying trash cans and recycling bins.
- Quickly repairing any leaking pipes and performing regular pipe maintenance, particularly in winter.
- Carefully sealing any cracks in the building’s foundation.
- Cleaning gutters and removing areas of standing water on school grounds.
- Developing and enforcing standardized sanitation measures that all staff can easily adhere to.
