Keep Rodents out of Your School – EPA Webinar, January 27

A webinar, “Keeping Rodents out of Your School,” hosted by the EPA’s Center of Expertise for School Integrated Pest Management (IPM), will be held on January 27 from 12:00 – 1:30 p.m. Eastern Time. This webinar will present the challenges schools face concerning rodents and an IPM strategy that engages the entire school community to successfully manage rodents. The webinar will feature:

  • Bobby Corrigan, Rodentologist, Corrigan Consulting
  • Claudia Riegel, Director, New Orleans Mosquito, Termite and Rodent Control Board

A moderated question and answer session will conclude the event.


This webinar is one in a series of EPA presentations offering information on IPM and helping 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. Our IPM webinar series has already reached more than 500 school officials, representing over 4 million students across the country. IPM is a smart, sensible, and sustainable approach to managing pests. IPM takes action to address the underlying causes that enable pests to thrive.
