Integrated Pest Management Works Inside and Outside School Buildings
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is the safest and most effective pest management approach that relies on a combination of common-sense
practices. The goal of an IPM program in a school environment is to make the site a safer, healthier place to learn and work. Pest complaints and pesticide use in schools and other public buildings have been reduced by 71 to 93% through IPM, with no long-term increase in costs.
