Integrated Pest Management:
Report Card for School Grounds
The ‘IPM Report Card for School Grounds’ provides a series of self-assessment tools that will allow schools to measure their adoption of IPM on school grounds. Additionally, each Report Card in the series can be used as a guide to incrementally or completely implement IPM by simply following the practices outlined. Although the Report Card was designed for the regional pest issues faced in New York and New Jersey, other regions can tailor the format to suit pests of regional significance.
IPM practices are precisely outlined for control of common pests of New York & New Jersey school grounds. It’s also a great tool to assess or specify landscaping procedures followed by staff or contractors.
Enroll in the School IPM listserv sponsored by the New Jersey State Network Project of the Northeastern Integrated Pest Management Center. Check off this and any other topical listservs to help you be in compliance. This is specifically designed for Jersey schools!
