- Mice, rats and other rodents
- Termites, fleas and ticks
What type of bugs are commonly found in schools?
The least liked and most persistent of pests likely to take up shelter in a school. Because it only takes a single point of entry for a bed bug infestation to take hold, bed bugs can be the biggest nuisance for a school. Often carried in on bookbags or clothing, bed bugs can breed and multiply quickly. An infestation is not something to take lightly and professional help is always necessary.
Rodents like mice and rats may find their way into the school seeking shelter especially when the temperatures start to drop. Windows, doors, cracks, and holes are all possible points of entry for rodents as they are able to squeeze through the smallest of areas. Check your building for possible entry points and if you find evidence of one sneaking through, contact a professional pest control service to help.
The tiny insect is the least worrisome of the options and is typically just looking for food, water, and shelter. Any amount of food left in the cafeteria or lockers are a magnet for ants. Because they are so tiny, they can hide in many different places and hard to locate the source. Hiring a professional to identify the source and remove the infestation is key.
Cockroaches can enter a school on the bottom of shoes or in book bags making their presence unknown to even the carrier. They can quickly and effectively spread throughout the school with a little food and water. They are sneaky and often hide in walls and ceilings. Because cockroaches can carry diseases, an infestation is something that needs to be taken care of swiftly.’
