Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an approach to pest management that focuses on long term pest prevention and takes advantage of all pest management strategies using pesticides only when absolutely necessary.
It is the goal of the Robla School District to implement IPM by focusing on long-term prevention or suppression of pests through accurate pest identification, by frequent monitoring for pest presence, by applying appropriate action levels, and by making the habitat less conducive to pests using sanitation and mechanical and physical controls. Pesticides that are effective will be used in a manner that minimizes risks to people, property, and the environment, and only after other options have been shown ineffective.
Mark Langley, the IPM Coordinator, ensures that the district is meeting the requirements of the California Healthy Schools Act (HSA), including creating an IPM Plan.
Integrated Pest Management Plan
An IPM Plan provides information about how pests are managed at each school district and includes a list of proposed pesticides for the school year.
