Managing termite infestations in schools

Pests don’t discriminate based on types of buildings. They seek the most convenient food and shelter, which means they could even infest school buildings.

There have been reports of bed bugs, ants and termites in schools, forcing administrators to cancel classes until the problem is fixed.

Termites eat non-stop, 24 hours 7 days a week. They feed on wood, paper, anything that is made of cellulose. The fact that they are found in schools states that the schools provide an abundance of cellulose material essential for their survival.

School facing termite woes

Tuesday, 21 May 2019

JOHOR BARU: One of the state’s oldest special schools, SK Pen­didikan Khas Princess Elizabeth, is in dire need of repairs as some of its buildings have been infested by termites.

The affected areas include the school’s assembly hall, several classrooms, the surau and the canteen.

The ceilings and beams in the school, which was built in 1953, have also been damaged by termites.

State Education, Human Res­ource, Science and Technology Committee chairman Aminolhuda Hassan, who visited the school yesterday, said the Education Ministry had been alerted.

“We are awaiting a report from the ministry. The school building is 66 years old.

“The Public Works Department issued a notice in July last year to cordon off the hall as heavy rain and termite infestation had caused multiple holes in the roof,” he added.
