Schools and other education facilities can prevent pest infestations by ensuring that all areas of the buildings are clean and free of clutter, regularly checking for signs of pests, and using Integrated Pest Management (IPM) principles to address any issues.
Rodents and insects are attracted to cluttered areas where they can find food and shelter. So by keeping all areas clean and free of clutter, it is less likely that pests will be able to take hold. In addition, regular inspections for signs of pests can help catch an infestation early on before it becomes too widespread. And finally, using IPM principles – such as using non-toxic methods whenever possible, trapping pests instead of killing them, and sealing up cracks to restrict them from getting inside can prove beneficial.
