School and Nursery Pest Control

Pest Control Services for Schools and Nurseries throughout the UK

Since its inception in 1975 Shield has an outstanding track record of working with schools and nurseries. We recognise that children and staff in educational settings are particularly susceptible to the spread of infections which in many cases are carried and spread by a wide variety of pests. If a pest infestation occurs the spread of germs and viruses is accelerated due to the close contact between children and staff. However, Shield can reduce the impact of this by providing the appropriate sustainable advice and solutions which will help support and enhance existing good infection control practices. Naturally all field operatives are DBS checked and are employed at the highest industry security standard.

Our operatives are trained to rigorous standards of The British Pest Control Association (BPCA). Shield is a full member of the BPCA.

Health and safety is our prime focus and we operate in accordance with the following requirements:

  • The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. The COSHH Regulations 2002 are regulations applied under this Act.
  • The Food and Environmental Protection Act 1985. The COPR are regulations applied under this Act.
  • Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981.

Shield Pest Control supports good practice and has therefore made significant investment in employee development as well as technology.

Our company has developed an advanced electronic reporting management system. This offers managing agents real time online access to reports including images taken on site. Our field operatives are all issued with handheld PDAs to upload all essential visit and site data, including status reports and action undertaken.
