Bugspray Pest Control

 


DPW provides pest control services to protect and preserve the well-being of our installation’s personnel and residents, facilities, and natural resources from harm by all types of pests, including insects, animals, and vegetation.

This pest management program provides safe and effect pest management practices that are compliant with all Federal laws and DOD requirements. This program promotes the implementation of Integrated Pest Management practices with reduced pesticide use.

Services include pest education, on site pest surveillance and assistance visits, and pest control treatments.

Experts on Insects and Nuisance Wildlife are available in Natural Resource Branch of DPW/ENV to provide:
  • Information and advisement on pest problems.
  • Site survey visits upon request to access or provide assistance with pest problems.
  • Coordination with CRDAMC Preventive Medicine on all known public health and parasitic pest problems.
  • Pest Assessment on DPW Service Requests for pest control.
  • Training on Integrated Pest Management and Self-Help Pest Control.
Contact #s 287-2885 (Natural Resource Office) or 288-5030 (Entomologist).

The DPW Work Reception at 287-2113 answers calls and takes requests for pest control 24 hours a day.
  • Call immediately if a vertebrate animal is inside a building, i.e. bat, skunk, snake.
  • Call immediately if a bee or yellow jacket nest is detected close to a work or living site.
  • Call 911 immediately if there is a mass stinging incident or animal bite or injury. Do not waste valuable time calling the Work Desk. The Emergency Service personnel are trained and equipped to rescue the injured and address the need for pest control at the appropriate time.
  • Other requests may be called in during regular duty hours.
  • Please state the observed problem and not the treatment. Ie “Cockroaches seen in break room” or “Gnats throughout building”. Not “Spray building for ants”. An on-site pest survey will be done on all non-emergency service requests to validate the report and determine the extent of the problem and the actions needed for control.
  • Facility occupants will be required to implement all applicable sanitation practices and mechanical controls.
