Help us keep the critters out of our buildings. All requests for pest control must come through the Office of Facilities by means of a work order in Maintenance Direct.

Pest Control

Pest control services for the entire District are now being provided by Tomlinson Bomberger Lawn Care and Pest Control. As the school year began Tomlinson Bomberger provided each building a “Pest Control Log Book” for staff to log routine pest issues and sightings. This book needs to remain in the main office for ease of access and availability in case we’re asked by a parent or governing agency to view it. When the Tomlinson Bomberger Technician arrives for the regularly scheduled service he will rely on what‘s been added to the log book as well as any urgent work orders we send to determine the level of service he will provide.

Winter Pests

Winter is here and that means critters are looking for a warm space to call home and get an easy meal. We typically have a significant increase in the frequency of mice sightings as well as American Roaches in the Fall and Winter months but we can reduce and all but eliminate the issue if we stop providing a food source for them. Snacks and other food in classrooms and offices will attract these pests and add to the difficulty in eliminating them given the treatment methods we’re allowed to use. Help yourself by not storing food, snacks or candy in your space.
