Common pests found in schools
Before taking any action regarding pest management, it is very important to determine what pest species are causing the trouble. Here are some on pests typically found in schools:
These pests can find their home in many different places in the school such as:
- Classrooms: pests like dirty classrooms and their population will be the highest in untidy classroom areas such as desks and closets.
- Gyms: these areas are often warm and moist with poor ventilation, especially in the locker rooms, making it an excellent breeding ground for all kinds of pests.
- Lockers: food remnants and other clutter can easily get accumulated in the lockers during the whole school year.
- Cafeterias: pests like to be near food sources which makes cafeterias an excellent nesting place for almost all types of pests.
- Dumpers and trash bins: all waste bags are very vulnerable to pests and especially when they are located near the school.
- School grounds: landscapes and athletic fields that have been neglected attract all sorts of pests some of which can do serious damage and carry diseases.
Integrated pest management for schools
By following integrated pest management instead of simply using extensive pesticides, schools can protect themselves from pest infestation and make themselves safer for children and teachers. Integrated pest management significantly reduces the use of pesticides because it first monitors where the pests are and what species require attention after which they determine what control measures need to be taken. Schools can also reduce pest populations by identifying and clearing conditions that attract pests. These preventive measures can be easily and quickly implemented and their effect on pests can be very big. Some of these measures include:
- Move dumpsters containing food remnants farther away from school.
- Seal all cracks and wall voids.
- Restrict eating food to cafeterias.
- Repair and remove all leaking pipes.
- Institute strict sanitation measures.
- Clean all gutters and redirect water flow away from school buildings.
- Educate students and employees how their actions can affect pest control and management.
Additional to these measures, integrated pest management includes evaluation of all pest management practices that a school has and choosing pest removal and management methods with lower risk. When developing their IPM program, schools need to consider the following methods:
- Methods need to be cost effective.
- All methods need to be safe and easy to use.
- Methods need to aid in prevention of pest infestations.
- All methods have to be safe for other animals that are not pests.
- Methods need to have minimal effect on surrounding environment.
- All methods need to be safe for humans.

IPM in school is still not used often and it is even less often fully understood. This is why we have decided to share some additional information on the importance of this method. IPM practices are focused on the following:
- Thorough inspection
- Precise identification of pest species
- Control and management carried out by pest managers
IPM is a very holistic pest management approach and all treatments are based solely on each school’s unique needs and requirements. Masters Pest Control Sydney does not use a “one size fits all” approach and we always use a unique approach for every pest problem. We take extra care in conducting site surveys and listening to your requirements so our every IPM approach is fully individual and tailored according your specific needs. Structural and landscape pests found in schools are a dangerous problem to children, employees, property and school surroundings. Pest control and management procedures are highly influenced by pest species and the size of their population. This is why our IPM program for schools has a number of steps that ensure safety and success of our pest management and control services. These steps are:
- Carefully monitoring pest populations
- Precisely identifying pest species that are affecting the school
- Determining damage levels and action levels that need to be taken
- Selecting the least hazardous control methods for control and management
- Target control methods in such a way that they do not negatively affect children, adults, pets and other animal species
- Protect and minimize any damage to the environment
- Educate people on how they can help reduce and prevent pest infestations
- Evaluate the effectiveness of all control and management measures that have been taken.
