Pests and Pesticides in Schools

Our children spend six hours a day for twelve years in school. Parents have a responsibility to work with educators to provide the safest environment in which children can attain an education. Numerous species of insects are present in and around schools. A number of these insects are pests that are harmful to children and disrupt the learning environment in classrooms. As a result, most schools apply pesticides to control pest infestations.
