Facility Masters Webcast: Integrated Pest Management Essentials for Schools – Oct. 27 @ 12pm EASTERN

All educational professionals want to provide a healthy learning environment that protects students and teachers from the hazards of pests and pest-related illnesses. But many recent surveys and studies have documented serious problems with school pest management programs, ranging from unmanaged infestations and use of illegal pesticides to unsafe and unnecessary exposure of children to pesticides.

Join an interactive, one-hour webcast to hear industry experts from the University of Arizona and EnviroSafe review the essentials of an effective Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program.
