Landmark serves more schools in Chicagoland than any other firm. We are dedicated to the health and safety of the students and staff whom we serve.
Illinois laws require schools and childcare facilities to adopt modern, greener pest control featuring a reduced reliance on pesticides. This research-based approach, which employs barrier methods such as sealing pests out, is called Integrated Pest Management (IPM).
Landmark’s IPM for schools reduces reliance on pesticides by delivering research-based green technologies and targeted methods that remove conditions that pests need to survive; access to food, water, warmth, and harborage. Pesticides are used only as a last resort to ensure perfect control.
You’re covered 24/7/365
Landmark’s Integrated Pest Management program reduces reliance on pesticides by delivering research-based green technologies and targeted methods that eliminate what pests need to survive.
We ensure a clean, pest-free environment with 24-hour monitoring designed to detect emerging issues before they become a problem. If you need a biologist in the middle of the night, our discrete rapid response can have a technician to you in as little as one hour. We respond 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Seal Mice Out
The best way to prevent infestation is to keep pests from entering in the first place. That’s why Landmark is more than a pest control company, we’re a pest exclusion company. Our team identifies the points in your building that are allowing pests to enter and seals pests out to ensure they can’t get in. Our exclusion work is fully warrantied.
Mice can enter through holes as small as a ¼ inch, and they carry diseases that put your business at risk of failing inspections. Landmark performs comprehensive inspections to identify the signs that mice leave behind. We work with you to eliminate the sanitation issues caused by rodents. We locate every hole where pests enter and seal them out to ensure you’ll be inspection ready.
We know that your work with children is more than a job, it’s your passion. Therefore, we know that you want answers to your questions right away. Our childcare and education clients have access to Landmark’s beekeepers, biologists, and managers 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Nuts About Pest Management
We admit it. We’re more than a little crazy about safety. It’s the reason why protecting public health is our mission. Because of the growing prevalence of nut allergies and sensitivities, all Landmark school treatments are peanut and tree nut-free.
Detailed Reporting to Improve Operations
Each report contains a detailed analysis of sanitation conditions, structural deficiencies, and practices that can be undertaken to reduce pests. We identify conditions that support pests including cleaning practices, trash removal, condensation areas, and organic debris. Then, we partner with you to eliminate the conditions that support pests.
Bed Bugs in the Classroom
Children who bring bed bugs to school get bullied and made fun of, so for us, it’s not enough to treat the classroom, we want to help level the playing field for that child so they can focus on their studies and not feel embarrassed. Disparate access to pest control shouldn’t have to be another obstacle for these children.
When a child brings Bed bugs to school, we work through the administration to help the student’s family invoke their rights under the Chicago Bed Bug Ordinance. While writing and mailing a letter seems easy to some people, it’s a prohibitive barrier to others, so we write the landlord notification letter for them and deliver it by certified mail at our own expense.
IPM Plans for Schools and Childcare Centers in Illinois
Many schools, especially child care centers, find the new regulations intimidating because they are required to create a customized IPM plan written specifically for each facility. The IPM plan establishes a tolerance, or action threshold, for each type of pest and states what action will be taken when that pest is found. Landmark Pest Management creates these plans for its clients free of charge.
Our expert staff helps you understand the legal requirements with which licensed childcare centers and schools must comply. Every Landmark program includes training regarding best practices for containment and response when pests invade. We provide training materials and conduct education sessions so that your staff will have lean, systematic processes in place when pest issues arise.
Protect your property and your health from any wildlife or pests. Our experts are trained to give you peace of mind.
