Educational Buildings Pest Control Services


Any pest control performed in a NJ school, day care or public college must adhere to the regulations set forth by the NJ DEP in the School IPM Act. This was written to help protect students and faculty from unnecessary pesticide exposure. Cavanaugh’s technicians are specially licensed and trained in the required protocol for school services.

Cavanaugh’s practices IPM throughout all school and daycare settings in order to provide safe effective pest control.  IPM is a well rounded approach to controlling pests that uses a wide variety of tools such as sanitation, structural modifications and other management techniques rather than turning to chemical application as a first option. Pesticide use is an integral part in the pest control solution but often an effective IPM program can reduce the reliance on chemical control. In a typical program, necessary information about a pest is combined with careful selection of suitable management techniques to eliminate the causes of pest outbreaks or to otherwise manage the pest in an economical manner that also represents the lowest possible hazard to people, property, and the environment.
