School pest training to be offered May 18 in Bozeman

BOZEMAN - Cockroaches, ants, bedbugs, hornets and spiders are among the insects that invade Montana schools.

To teach Montanans how to control those and other insects, a free "School Integrated Pest Management Inspection and Training Tour" will be held Wednesday, May 18, in Bozeman, said Ruth O'Neill, School IPM coordinator for Montana State University Extension.

Participants will inspect Bozeman schools to learn how to identify common pests. They will also receive tips and techniques for monitoring insect and learn how to identify and address conditions that are conducive to insect pests, such as cluttered areas and rooms that are highly humid. Those include cafeterias and kitchens. Insects often enter buildings through gaps and cracks in floors and walls. View full article.
