|How To Get Rid Of Bugs Or Pests Around Your School Or House by Pestpreneur: 10:06pm On Jun 20, 2021|
By using integrated pest management instead of solely relying on extensive pesticide applications, schools can reduce pest populations and reduce the use of pesticides, making schools safer for children and school personnel.
IPM reduces the use of pesticides by first monitoring pest populations to determine where, when, and what kind of controls should be applied. Schools can reduce pest infestations by identifying and removing conditions that will attract pests.
Preventive measures are easy to implement and often improve the overall maintenance of the school. These measures can include:
Restricting where food is eaten.
Moving dumpsters and food disposal containers away from the school.
Repairing and maintaining leaking pipes.
Pressure cleaning food service areas.
Sealing cracks and crevices.
Instituting sanitation measures.
Cleaning gutters and directing water flow away from buildings to prevent saturation.
Educating students and staff about how their actions affect pest management and control.
In addition to adopting preventive measures, the IPM approach includes evaluating a school's pest management practices and choosing lower-risk methods of pest removal and prevention.
When developing an IPM program, schools should consider methods that:
Minimize health risks to humans and the environment.
Minimize disruption of the natural, outdoor environment.
Are least toxic to species that are not pests.
Prevent a recurrence of the pest infestation.
Are safe and easy to apply effectively.
