Register for Upcoming Webinars on School Integrated Pest Management

EPA’s Center of Expertise for School Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is excited to offer two upcoming webinars:

On Tuesday, May 10 − Stop School Pests and iPest Manager – School IPM Educational Programs, highlighting two new, free, online school IPM resources:

  • The Stop School Pests program, a standardized, peer-reviewed, national IPM training program for school communities, and
  • iSchoolPest Manager, an online hub for school IPM materials. These new resources, developed through EPA grants, are intended to help schools initiate and grow their IPM programs, thereby providing students, faculty and staff with healthier learning environments.
  • Featuring Dr. Dawn Gouge and Janet Hurley

On Tuesday, May 17 − Ants – The #1 Pest in Schools, emphasizing ant prevention and control strategies that are consistent with a smart, sensible and sustainable IPM program:

  • School IPM practices can solve most of your ant problems. If they cannot gain entry or do not find food, they will march to another location.
  • Fire and carpenter ants are particularly troublesome because they present unique hazards to human health and structures, respectively.

These webinars are part of a series of EPA presentations offering information on IPM to help school districts adopt a proactive approach to pest control. Our IPM webinar series has already reached more than 3,500 school personnel, representing more than 27 million students across the country. IPM is a smart, sensible and sustainable approach to managing pests that takes action to address the underlying causes that enable pests to thrive.
