School administrators and others who have decision-making responsibilities for pest management in and around school buildings and grounds should know that safer options exist.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM)

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a proven method of pest control that emphasizes simple, prevention practices that cause the least harm to people and the environment. IPM focuses on eliminating the cause of pests by minimizing access to food, water, and hiding places.

Schools have a responsibility to provide safe and healthy learning environments. Protecting Children in Schools from Pests and Pesticides. Pesticides are powerful tools for controlling pests. However, pesticides need to be used carefully and judiciously, especially when used in sensitive areas where children are present. Children are more sensitive than adults to pesticides. Young children can have greater exposure to pesticides from crawling, exploring, or other hand-to-mouth activities.

We recommend that schools use Integrated Pest Management(IPM) to reduce pesticide risk and exposure to children. Put simply, IPM is a safer and simple and effective pest management in a school community. A school IPM program uses common sense strategies to reduce sources of food, water and shelter for pests in your school buildings and grounds. An IPM program takes advantage of all pest management strategies, including the judicious and careful use of pesticides when necessary.

Since children spend so much of their day at school, integrated pest management provides an opportunity to create a safer learning environment by reducing children’s exposure to pesticides as well as by eliminating pests.

Does your pest control contractor use dangerous pesticides?

Consider this:

· Children are especially vulnerable and disproportionately exposed to pesticides.

· Pesticides have been linked to cancer, reproductive, neurological, behavioral and immunological disorders, as well as asthma.

· Alternative methods of pest control, such as Integrated Pest Management, are often more effective and, over time, less expensive than chemical pesticides.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is common-sense pest control that combines preventive techniques, non-chemical pest control, and the appropriate use of pesticides with preferences for products that are the least harmful to human health and the environment.

Technical inspections provided by pest control contractors should provide a comprehensive appraisal of the site. They should also include a quality assurance check of the standard of the pest control work. However, contractors are unlikely to provide a report that may be critical of their own work, so the QA element of the service is not disclosed. Furthermore, some inspection reports are of dubious technical quality.
