Educational facilities such as schools and day care centres experience pest activity throughout the year due to various factors.
Students, while spending considerable time in crowded areas like stairwells, canteen areas and ovals, inadvertently contribute to the issue. Dropping rubbish, leaving a trail of crumbs behind and neglecting to close doors and windows can attract pests like flies, rodents, cockroaches and ants.
The presence of overgrown branches reaching toward buildings on seldom accessed grounds provides an entry point for opportunistic rodents to enter into roof voids during the night. Moreover, discarded food items left behind bins and under desks creates an inviting environment for cockroaches, which in turn attract spiders.
