Pest Control


Pest control services for the University are contracted to a private firm, which is on campus every Friday.

The University has developed a contractual pest control service employing a method called "integrated pest management". It provides the large majority of its services on the exterior of the facility with the intent of preventing pest entry. When needed, internal controls will use baiting and spraying. Together, the process limits occupant exposure to pesticides, while maintaining a pest controlled environment.

However, upon occasion, (mostly due to food and drinks being consumed in office and classroom areas) interior service is needed. The pest control contractor is on campus every Friday, unless holiday schedules dictate otherwise. If additional services are needed, a Customer Request requesting special attention must be sent to the Work Management Center, and must include a building and room location.

Immediate service is not offered.  If your area is in need of immediate pest control, please contact Work Management, and you may obtain a pest control spray to use until further treatment is scheduled on designated days.

In case of emergencies, e.g. fire ants, please contact the Work Management Center at 590-1370 with a building and room location.
