A.I.M.®

We take a thorough, Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach to protecting your property that follows an ongoing cycle of three activities: assess, implement, and monitor. We call this the A.I.M. solution, and it helps keep pests away day in and day out, ensuring maximum protection with minimum exposure.


With an abundant supply of food, water and shelter, schools are an ideal habitat for pests. We service thousands of schools across North America, so we understand the unique pest control challenges facing education environments, from pre-K classrooms to university campuses. Orkin’s School Precision Protection™ starts with a comprehensive, on-site inspection, which we then use to design a pest management program that helps meet your school’s needs.  Our standard School Precision Protection™ package includes crawling insect and rodent control.

In addition to pest control, your program might include other services such as:

Fly Control – Flies can carry more than a half-billion microorganisms on their body and legs that can contaminate food in your school’s cafeteria. Orkin’s fly control service is designed to manage all infestations, mild or severe.

Restroom Care – No matter how clean, pleasant and professionally presented a building may appear, a poorly maintained washroom can be unsanitary and create a damaging impression that will last. Orkin’s suite of restroom products helps keep washrooms cleaner, reduce the spread of germs and contribute to a pleasant smell.

Rodent Control – Rats and mice can contaminate food and spread diseases, and gnaw through walls and electrical wiring, making them one of the most destructive pests that can invade your school. Orkin will customize a rodent program that addresses the problem at every level, from perimeter areas and entry points to nesting sites and beyond.

Exclusion – Pests can enter your building through doors and small cracks. Orkin will work with you to seal potential pest entry points and help protect your school by making it less attractive to pests.
