Integrated Pest Management Plan

Integrated Pest Management Plan

North Hills School District is committed to providing a safe environment for students, faculty, and staff. North Hills School District subscribes to the philosophy and practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices. Modern pest management is more than a reaction to a problem; it is about preventing pests while protecting people.

IPM is used to eliminate and prevent the infestation of unwanted pests while de-emphasizing the use of insecticides or pesticides. The integration between good quality housekeeping and non-pesticide procedures is essential to the success of an IPM program.  Emphasis is placed on good quality housekeeping, monitoring and controlling the environment and using insecticides or pesticides are only as a supplement to IPM protocol.

From time to time it may be necessary to use an insecticide or pesticide to address a pest problem. Insecticides or pesticides will only be used when necessary and will not be routinely applied. When insecticide or pesticide are used notices will be posted in the application area 72 hours prior to application and for two (2) days following the application.

If an insecticide or pesticide application must be made to control an emergency pest problem, notice will be provided via district communication outlets. Exemptions to this notification include disinfectants, antimicrobial products, self-containerized baits placed in areas not accessible to students, gel-type baits placed in cracks, crevices or voids, and swimming pool maintenance chemicals.
