Our IPM webinar series has already reached more than 500 school officials, representing over 4 million students across the country!  The series of presentations offers information on IPM and helps school districts adopt a proactive approach to pest control. The presentations are geared specifically to the school community: facility managers, buildings and grounds managers and staff, nurses, administrators, and IPM coordinators.  IPM is a smart, sensible, and sustainable approach to managing pests. IPM takes action to address the underlying causes that enable pests to thrive.
