Like people, pests need food, water, and shelter to survive. Removing these elements, by using Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices, will control existing pest infestations and reduce future invasions.
Districts with successful IPM programs have everyone in the school community working together for a healthier learning environment. How can your school reach this level of success in managing pests? It starts by having a plan – an IPM plan. Whether you are just starting an IPM program, reinvigorating an existing plan or sustaining an effective IPM strategy – it’s helpful to take stock of your school pest management assets to where you can improve. Strive to institutionalize IPM in your district!
Join us to learn the principles of effective school IPM and the specific components of a comprehensive school IPM plan. Find out who should be involved in developing and implementing IPM practices in your district. Hear two facility managers discuss what motivated their districts to start IPM programs. See how administration buy-in and cross-program support led to district-wide success.
This webinar will give you the foundation for developing and implementing the most successful IPM plan for your district.

- Thomas Green, Ph.D., President, IPM Institute of North America
