Pest Control Schedule


Facility Pest Control Schedule

2017-18 Pest Control Schedule (pdf)

In 1999, the Illinois General Assembly passed laws requiring that public schools notify parents/guardians and school employees, at least 48 hours prior, to any pesticide applications on school property. The term “pesticide” includes insecticides, herbicides, rodenticides, and fungicides. The notification requirement extends to both indoor and outdoor pesticide applications. Excluded from the notification requirement are antimicrobial agents (such as disinfectants, sanitizers or deodorizers), insecticide baits, and rodenticide baits.

To report a problem with pests, please call 217-384-3662 and speak with Shannon Wright, Facilities Services, Administrative Assistant who is the District Designated Person for pest control.  She will facilitate calling the Pest Control Company to examine the best course of action to reduce the pest control problem.
