Green Organic Schools and Daycare Facility Treatment

In our pest control treatment for school and daycare facilities, we consider possible vulnerabilities allergies and sensitivities of clients or students and give written pre-report of what materials will be used. We also provide service report for auditing purposes. Our method involves an inspection treatment combination. No treatment is given before we do an inspection. This allows our technician to make an informed treatment decision which uses the right materials to control the identified or most likely pest problem. All treatment plans are therefore customized to meet your specific needs. We use nine proven steps that guarantee effective pest control in your facilities.

1. Complete Inspection: We do a complete inspection of your property, both inside and outside. In doing so we are able to identify all the critical points at which insect and non insect pest can be controlled. We look for all harborages, entry points and nesting sites to include even lumber piles.

2. Documentation and Reporting:  We discuss treatment requirements with management and write the treatment plan. We consider possible allergies and sensitivities of clients and give written pre-report of what materials will be used. We provide service report for auditing purposes. These reports meet the reporting requirements of Federal and State regulations and are kept for up to three years.

3. Exclusion: Having identified potential and active entry points we proceed to provide a caulking service or give written recommendations for caulking services where applicable.  Exclusion services are also available for rats and squirrels etc. We make recommendations when major construction work is required to exclude rodents. Our technicians are however trained to undertake most pest exclusion work. This requires special approval.

4. Child and Pet Proof Baiting: Even though our materials are green and organic we take additional steps by placing insect baits in areas which are out of the reach of children and pets. These baits are ideally suited for cock roach and ant control.

5. Treatment of Wall Voids: Empty spaces in walls are the ideal living place for German cockroach carpenter ants and many more pests.  We treat these areas by removing switch plates and coverings for electrical outlets. Our certified technicians use special equipment which is well suited to make these safe green applications.

6. Treatment of Entry Ways: It is not unusual that pest sometimes find themselves in our homes even though we are treating for pests. This is often because technician over look some entry ways. Our qualified technicians are trained to create a complete barrier around your homes by treating all entry ways including doors and windows.

7. Green Barrier: Our green barrier is intended to put a final in the pathways of pest to prevent them from gaining entry in to your homes. We either spray a ten foot green barrier around your home or sprinkle granular material which is equally effective. This green organic approach to pest control stops pests’ right in their tracks.

8. Crack and Crevice: Even when we have had the best sealing and caulking jobs done there are many tiny cracks and crevices all over our homes.  These are great harborages for crawling insects. Our technicians take the insect baits to them in these areas this kills insect pests in their hiding places.

9. Record Keeping and Reporting: We provide our customers with a detail report of the materials used and the amounts. These meet the reporting requirements of Federal and State regulations and are kept for up to three years.
