Pest Control

Pest Control

Northern Illinois University practices integrated pest control management (IPM). This is pest management strategy that focuses on methods that are least injurious to the environment. Pesticides are applied in such a way that they pose the least possible hazard, and are used as a last resort when other controls are inadequate.

Bed Bugs

While bed bugs were generally eradicated as pests in the United States in the 1940's, with the removal of highly toxic pesticides they have made a resurgence.

NIU works closely with residents in the Halls as well as the NIU Apartments to prevent/erradicate infestations. If you believe you have a problem with bed bugs please call the Housing Work Request Office at 815-753-4948.
