School IPM

IPM Home

Children spend a significant part of their lives in school.  Pest management is an important part of school safety.

Integrated Pest Management is a process of managing pests that replies on prevention and multiple control tactics that provide the best control with the least cost and environmental impact.

IPM is based on thorough knowledge of the pests and the technologies used to control them, and can be performed by anyone with proper training.  A good IPM program attempts to make schools less hospitable to pests by modifying the environment, like improving sanitation, and eliminating pest harborage sites, along with using the lowest impact pesticides as necessary.
