Free Webinar – Learn How to Control Pests in Schools This Winter

Attend a FREE webinar to learn how to safely control pests in your school this winter.

As the temperature drops, students and staff are more likely to spend additional time inside school buildings, which can increase their exposure to pests and other allergy and asthma triggers. Keep occupants in your school safe this winter by practicing seasonal tips to effectively control indoor pests in schools.
