School IPM for Cleaning Professionals

Custodians are among the most important people for IPM in a school. Through their activities, they can directly affect the quality of the learning environment. Custodians can also play a key role in educating other school staff on how to avoid pest-conducive conditions.  This lesson is specifically organized to help school custodians and cleaning professionals identify and correct common sanitation issues. Key elements of sanitation, exclusion, thorough cleaning procedures for buildings, structures and equipment and correct maintenance and storage practices are covered.  There is also a version of this lesson that is designed to be downloaded and modified to be used in an in-class scenario.  Both of these versions are specifically aimed at providing custodial staff with the essential information regarding common pests in schools and how to deal with them.
