School IPM

Welcome to the School IPM website

On this site you will find information on practical pest prevention for schools in Minnesota. We are developing a unique and proactive Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program for schools in Minnesota to increase effectiveness of school IPM programs, reduce pesticide applications and increase cost effectiveness.

This website contains two major products:

Forms for your use as you work to improve your school IPM program

Tasksheets that walk you through steps that need to be taken for particular pests, such as ants, mice, wasps and bees.

This website is part of an experiment to improve IPM in schools. We have conducted assessments at four schools and based the documents and information on this website on the findings from those assessments. We appreciate all comments and suggestions.
