With increasing public concern about pesticide use, it has never been more important for us to reevaluate pesticide use in and around our schools. Keeping our children safe should always be our first priority. Pests in schools also cause concern. Some pests cause allergies and have been found to be asthma triggers. Others carry bacteria and transmit diseases. These are certainly good reasons to manage pests in your schools. This is where Integrated Pest Management (IPM) can help you.
