Greetings ESP State Staff Coordinators,
 
This information is regarding the October 3rd webinar, Integrated Pest Management Certification for School Custodians and Maintenance Professionals. If an affiliate decides to have a group of custodians take the webinar together at a central location, let me know, and I can arrange for you to have certification documents at that location.
 
Thank You,

What is School IPM?

Integrated Pest Management or IPM is a strategy that ensures safe, cost-effective and sustainable pest management, reducing risks associated with pests and their management. In schools IPM is a much more effective alternative to scheduled applications of chemical pesticides. Children’s special vulnerability to pesticides includes both increased opportunity for exposure and increased susceptibility compared to adults. IPM practices reduce student exposure to both pests and pesticides.
