This webinar provides information on rodents and what you can do to reduce the risk to students, faculty and staff in schools. The health significance of rats and mice is discussed as well as how to identify their food sources, harborages and signs of activity. An introduction to rodent control practices including waste management, sanitation, exclusion, and chemical options follows. The final segment includes a discussion of protecting non-target populations, safety tips for school environments, personal protection, and special considerations for structural foundations, playgrounds, and sports fields. This webinar is one in a series by EPA to help schools adopt a proactive approach to pest control called Integrated Pest Management, or IPM. As a smart, sensible, and sustainable approach to managing pests, IPM takes action to address the underlying conditions that enable pests to thrive. By practicing IPM, schools reduce student and staff exposure to pests and pesticides. For more information about EPA’s School IPM Program, go to http://www.epa.gov/pestwise/ipminscho...
