Food service areas are some of the most pest-vulnerable areas in a school because they provide pests with food, water, and shelter.  Clean and well-maintained food service areas are essential for the health and well-being of all people who eat and work in the area.  This module, conveniently divided into two learning lessons, is specifically organized for food service staff who have an important responsibility in the school IPM plan.
