New UW Extension Bulletin Targets Mouse Control

February 20, 2015

Using integrated pest management (IPM) in and around schools and other facilities can lead to more effective mouse control and provide a safer environment for occupants, says an author of a new University of Wyoming Extension publication.

“The steps to IPM are easy to follow and repeatable for all pests,” notes John Connett, one of the authors of “Wyoming Integrated Pest Management Standard Operating Procedure for Mice in Schools and Other Facilities.”

“In general, IPM is an ongoing activity,” he says. “In time, the efficiencies in an IPM program also can save schools and other facilities money.”

Connett is the school IPM specialist with UW Extension.

The bulletin describes deer mice that may carry hantavirus and explains the primary elements of mouse control in facilities. Templates also are included for data sheets, notices and handouts for occupants.

The bulletin is available for free download. Go to and click on “Publications” on the left-hand side. Enter “B-1259” in the search field and follow the prompts.
