INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT

It is the policy of Iron County School District to conform to the requirements of Utah Administrative Rule R392-200 (Design, Construction, Operation, Sanitation, and Safety of Schools) and specifically to Section 7 (12) which requires the adoption of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices and principles for the control of structural and landscape pests. Structural and landscape pests can pose significant problems in the urban environment. The pesticides used to remediate such pests can also pose health risk to people, non-target organisms and the environment. Through the use of IPM, the Iron County School District will maintain effective pest control while minimizing pesticide use.
