Pest Control

Integrated Pest Management

The University provides pest control services to University buildings, residence halls, dining commons, graduate housing, and faculty/staff housing. Typically, both the interior and exterior of our buildings are serviced on a monthly basis. Additional services may be requested by submitting a Service Request.

Integrative Pest Management is an environmentally-sensitive approach to pest control with minimal pesticides. The University’s program is designed for achieving long term, environmentally sound pest suppression through the use of a wide variety of technological and management practices. Control strategies in our program extend beyond the application of pesticides by prioritizing structural and procedural modifications that reduce food, water, harborage and pest access points.

The typical pests covered are cockroaches, rats, mice, bees, spiders, centipedes, millipedes, flies silverfish and all other vertebrates. Wildlife services are also available through our pest control provider to manage such pests as squirrels, raccoons and birds.
