PROTECT YOUR CHILD'S HEALTH IN SCHOOLS AND DAY CARES AND REDUCE INSECT POPULATIONS WITH IPM
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an approach to pest management that relies
on common-sense practices rather than depending
exclusively on pesticides. IPM uses information
about pests' life cycles to control them, and reduces
risk to people and to the environment.
The primary goal of IPM is finding the cause
of pest problems. Understanding what pests need
to survive is the key.
Below are excellent flyers created by the University of Tennessee Extension about IPM and creating change in your child's school:
Basic Flyer - A good primer to read and to give policy makers.
