Board approves pest management plan

By on November 28, 2010

Kaneland—The Kaneland School Board on Monday voted 7-0 to approve an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) plan to address all issues regarding pest control. The plan is in compliance with the Structural Pest Control Act, which makes it mandatory for all school districts to carry an integrated pest management plan.

An IPM plan requires interaction between school staff and pest control specialists to successfully administer both pesticides and nonchemical strategies to regulate pest infestation levels and prevent child exposure to chemicals.
