School Pest Control
Schools can be highly attractive places for pests with the possibility of hundreds of children eating in the playgrounds and dropping litter.

- Bed Bugs
Vermin is the general term applied to animal and bird species regarded as pests and especially to those associated with diseases. Certain parts of schools, for example, kitchens, food stores, and dining halls can provide ideal conditions for certain pests and vermin. This briefing lists the most common sorts of school infestation, together with control measures that should be in place in all schools.
PEST AND VERMIN CONTROL IN SCHOOLS
The commonest species of ant is the black garden ant. A highly organised and social insect, a colony will nest and include worker ants which are attracted to sweet food stuffs.
Ants may cause contamination to food stuffs and preperation areas. Limited measures can be taken by facilities staff but professional pest control contracters should be brought in if large numbers of ants nests are found.
Bees and Hornets
Honey bees live in colonies often greater than 30,000 in roof and wall cavaties and hollow trees. They swarm in early summer. They have a barbed sting and die once used but will sting when provoked.
Untreated infestations can cause contamination of foodstuffs, harm to mortar and building fabric and threats of stings. Some people may experience analphylactic shock on being stung and will require prompt treatment. This information can be found on Manchester Pest Wasp page.
Professional vermin control.
There are two types of cockroach found in the Manchester Area; the Oriental cockroach and the German cockroach.
Cockroaches will feed on almost anything from food to faecal matter. They are commonly found in kitchens and heating systems. They prefer warm moist conditions and they reproduce rapidly; a German cockroach can produce up to 240 eggs per month.
They can spread bacteria and usually indicate that food preparation areas are not clean. Germs can be spread from the body of a cockroach or from their droppings. They can carry dysentry, gastro-enteritis, typhoid and food poisioning organisms. Contamination occurs when the cockroaches come into contact with foodstuffs.
Adult fleas live exclusively as parasites of warm-blooded animals. The females lay their eggs close to or on the infested animal. Wall–to-wall carpeting and soft furnishings also provide a relatively undisturbed environment for fleas to develop. Fleas are not thought to transmit any serious illness to humans. Although not all people are affected by flea bites, they can cause severe irritation.
“House” mice are considered amongst the most troublesome and economically damaging rodents in the Manchester area. They nest in the ground or in any protected location in nests constructed of shredded fibrous material such as paper. The female produces 5 to 10 litters per year, averaging five per litter.
Mice contaminate foodstuffs with their urine, droppings and hair and amongst the diseases they may transmit to humans are:
• salmonellosis (food poisoning)
• lymphocytic choriomeningitis
Mice also chew cables and wiring and this can cause short-circuiting and increase fire hazard.
Descended originally from the Wild Rock Dove (a cliff-face dweller) pigeons have adapted to urban environments and lack natural predators.
Pigeons can carry psittacosis which can cause respiratory illnesses and flu-like symptoms, if humans are exposed to infected birds.
Pest Controllers are empowered to control and destroy pigeons if they pose a threat to public health. Other measures can be taken to prevent pigeons nesting such as wires on window sills and netting across open pathways and courtyards.
Common rats live in any situation that provides food, water and shelter. The common rat is the most widespread of its species and is widely found in urban and rural areas. In homes they will live in loft spaces, wall cavities, cellars or under floorboards. In gardens, they will burrow into compost heaps and grassy banks or under sheds. They are also commonly found living in sewer systems.
Their favourite foods are cereal products, although they will eat almost anything that humans eat.
• Rats can transmit many diseases to humans, including Salmonellosis (food poisoning) and Weils disease.
• Rats will eat or contaminate food intended for humans. It is estimated that up to 5% of food produced world-wide is lost as a result of rodent activity.
• They can cause damage to buildings and other structures by gnawing and burrowing.
Grey squirrels were introduced in this country during the nineteenth century; they now occupy most of the mainland of England and Wales. They are resident in woodland as well as urban parks and gardens.
The main threat from squirrels is that they enter roof spaces and chew woodwork, strip insulation from wiring and water pipes and drown in open water tanks causing contamination.
Professional vermin control contractors should be employed to deal with squirrels. Preventative measures should also be taken such as blocking gaps and entry holes with wire mesh and ensuring frequent inspection of roof spaces.
Foxes are increasingly seen in urban and suburban areas as well as rural areas. The fox is primarily carnivorous, and they are highly effective scavengers finding waste in towns and cities plentiful.
The law prevents the use of poisons or illegal traps or snares to control foxes and it is illegal to shoot them in urban areas.
