Pest Management for Day Care Centers in the NYC Metro Area
Commercial pest control requires a high level of professionalism and expertise to protect public and private properties from being overrun with pests, and child care centers pose a few unique risks for attracting pests that we have become familiar with over the years. Not only do child care programs have the essential elements of life that pests search out such as food and water, but they also tend to have outdoor play areas that create hiding places for wildlife that must be eliminated.
Fortunately, we have everything you need to maintain that trust of the parents who leave their children in your program’s care, and you can get started on establishing a pest-free property by understanding how our commercial pest control services work.
The Usual Pests We Find in Child Care Centers
There are some pests that we find in preschool environments more often than others. These include the following:
- Rodents (Mice & Rats)
- Nuisance Birds & Animals
- Stinging Pests (Bees & Mosquitoes)
- Flies & Gnats
Why You Need Pest Control Solutions for Your Daycare Center
Your NYC or NJ child care center is vulnerable to pests such as cockroaches and flies simply because of the prevalence of food in the building. Child care centers that have been established for some time may also be in older buildings that have areas that have broken down over time.
We often discover areas on the roof or around the exterior walls that pests are using as access points to enter the building. Often, repairing these areas is the first line of defense for ending the pest control problem.
Your business also has a responsibility to provide a safe environment for children, and keeping the play areas and classrooms pest-free is part of that commitment. Young children are vulnerable to allergic reactions to many types of pests such as spiders, ants and bees.
In many instances, children may not be identified as allergic at their young age, which increases the chances of a life-threatening emergency. With regular pest inspections and monitoring combined with the appropriate treatment services, you never have to worry about a child encountering a potentially dangerous pest on the property.
Integrated Pest Management for Child Care Centers
Day care programs are one of our most sensitive areas to treat for pests since young children are vulnerable to the ingredients in many pesticide formulas. This is why we offer IPM services that allow your business to take advantage of a multi-prong approach that eliminates pests safely and efficiently.
With IPM, we emphasize green pest control action measures such as habitat modification and frequent monitoring to handle insect and wildlife problems on the property. Humane trapping, sealing access points and sanitation procedures are all potential options that we can use to eliminate pests while ensuring the safety of every child at your New York City or New Jersey center.
