Wyoming School IPM Recordkeeping

Records help document preventive measures and how well various actions or products work.

These records can serve in forecasting when a seasonal pest may appear or when an outbreak may occur and can help the pest manager to evaluate the success of the IPM program.

Wyoming School districts are required to keep the following 6 record items regarding pesticides (not only RUPs) applied on school property;

     These items are required to be retained for 2 years.

  • Month, day, and year of application
  • Location of the application
  • Pest to be controlled
  • Name of the pesticide
  • Type of pesticide to be applied
  • Contact for additional information

These elements are included in the Notification/Record form template and the Pest Control Application Form.

Disinfectants and sanitizers used by school employees for cleaning purposes and insect or rodent bait stations of the type available for home use are exempted from the Wyoming notification and posting requirements.

All certified applicators are required by law to keep record(s) of their federally restricted use pesticide (RUP) applications for a period of 2 years.

No standard Federal form is required for recording RUP applications, which allows certified private applicators the flexibility to integrate RUP applications into any recordkeeping system.

The 9 required elements of each RUP application are as follows;

• The brand or product name

• The EPA registration number

• The total amount applied

• The month, day, and year of application

• The location of the application

• The crop, commodity, stored product, or site

• The size of area treated

• The name of the certified applicator

• The certification number of the certified applicator

These 9 elements are included in the Pest Control Application Form template.

The following items required to be kept for 2 years regarding SPOT treatments of RUP under 1/10 acre.

  • Brand or product name
  • EPA registration number
  • Total amount applied
  • Month, day, and year of application
  • Include the words “spot application”
  • A general description of the location application

These elements are included in the Pest Control Application Form template.

Records that could be included in the IPM logbook; 

Maps of the school building and grounds

Maps make it easier to specify where the pest was, note problem areas, and to explain the situation to others.

Landscape history data sheets

Provide site details that help in future decision making.

Weed scouting, building inspection and trap data sheets

Note what was found, species and life stage, where it was found, the day and time it was found, and whether it was found alive or dead.

Keep careful records of inspection results, trap catches, etc. to identify seasonal risk factors and areas with a high frequency of problems.

Records can include maintenance and structural deficiencies as well as all corrective and follow-up actions taken.

Pest sighting log

Pest sighting info helps alert the facilities manager of pest sightings between scheduled inspections. Maintenance staff, teachers, students and school support staff should all contribute to pest-sighting by emailing info, such as, what, where and when to the facilities managers office. Pest-sighting information is then recorded on forms in the IPM logbook designed for the purpose of keeping track of pest sightings in or around school.

MSDS sheets and product labels are often kept in a separate logbook dedicated to MSDS sheets and labels.

Follow all reentry precautions from the pesticide label.
