We've worked with local schools over the past decade to help them successfully adopt Integrated Pest Management Programs and Policies (IPM) as well as Healthier Cleaning Methods. Contact your local school to see which pesticides or cleaning supplies they are using, and ask for support in changing them. Contact us if you would like assistance on how to successfully work with schools to make improvements.
