Schools and daycare pest control in Virginia by Connor's Termite & Pest Control

Serving Springfield | Fredericksburg | Sterling | Richmond

Although it may have once been acceptable to use harsh chemicals in pest control efforts, the industry has changed a lot in the last few decades as it moves toward more eco-friendly treatments. Especially when it comes to pest control in schools and daycares, it’s absolutely essential to use environmentally responsible treatments.

At Connor’s Termite & Pest Control, we are proud to implement an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) plan to help prevent pests and eliminate the risks that might contribute to an infestation. We are proud to keep schools in Richmond and the Northern Virginia area pest-free and safe for kids, parents, and employees.

Safe pest control practices for schools & daycares

At Connor’s, IPM principles guide all of our pest control treatments, but it’s especially necessary in areas with children. IPM is dedicated toward using the least harmful products in the least harmful amounts to solve the pest infestation. By using exclusion and other specific techniques, we can minimize pesticide use and eliminate pests even more effectively.

In addition, some of our techniques focus on natural or biological practices to detect and treat pests. Two of these include the use of EcoSMART products and the administration of insect growth regulators (IGRs), which prevents pests from reproducing.

Common pest concerns in schools

When it comes to controlling pests in school settings, it’s important to tackle the sources from which they might appear. Some of the specific areas in schools and daycare centers that Connor’s focuses on treating and monitoring include:

  • Leaky pipes
  • Foundation problems
  • Cafeterias, kitchens, or food service areas
  • Clutter
  • Construction materials
  • Trees, plants, and landscaping around the school
  • Dumpsters
