Ayrshire schools plagued by rats, fleas and flies with mice and wasps also a problem – The Scottish Sun

Recommended by Dikshit Aryal, Published on December 31st, 2019

A NUMBER of Ayrshire schools are infested with rats, fleas and flies, according to a new report.

A Freedom of Information request has shown a total of 165 cases of infestations across East Ayrshire over the last three years.


Schools such as Auchinleck Academy, Cumnock Academy, Drongan Primary, Loudoun Academy and Ochiltree Primary have all been affected.

Other problems stated in the release were mice, wasps, silver fish and ants.

An East Ayrshire Council spokesperson said: With all our enquiries we categorise pest control requests into high priority or low priority- high priority for pests include rats, wasps and bees, low priority pests include mice, flies, ants etc.

Further priority is given to premises where children or vulnerable adults are present.

Any reports of pests within council premises are taken seriously.

Regular inspections and procedures aimed at prevention are in place and, where necessary, we aim to report and respond to the first signs of any pest activity.

Individual premises managers in locations and across the councils catering services have the responsibility to ensure action is taken quickly to resolve any issues.

High priority complaints have a two day response target, low priority have a five-day response target.

In the vast majority of cases visits are made well within these target times.

The number of service requests received for council premises represents only a very small percentage received by our Environmental Health Service for pest control work.

They are not at a level which would give us cause for concern.
