Pest Control

The presence of pests at one time or another is inevitable, being that campus is nearly a city within a city. In addition, because Iowa State is bordered by the Squaw Creek, such pests can include not just bugs but also wildlife as well.

Campus Services works hard to maintain a healthy and safe level of pest and wildlife control on campus. All pest control services are on an on-call, on-needed basis. Our certified pest control operator employs Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategies in all campus buildings. IPM provides a more thorough inspection and monitoring of potential pest control problems instead of relying on conventional chemical methods. Our pest control operator will work with you to resolve each issue in the best manner possible.
