Pesticide Notices

It is the intent of Ferndale School District to provide a safe and healthy
environment for our staff, students and users of our facilities. Structural
and landscape pests can pose significant problems to people, property and
the environment. Pesticides can also pose risks to people, property and
the environment. Therefore, Ferndale School District will implement an
Integrated Pest Management Program for control of structural and
landscape pests.

The following were established to develop the Integrated Pest
Management Program:

1. To reduce any potential human health hazard or to protect against
significant threat to public safety;
2. To prevent lost of or damage to school structures or property;
3. To enhance the quality of life for students, staff and community,
4. To ensure that the plan complies with state and federal legislation.

Integrated Pest Management
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective and environmentally
sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of
common sense practices. IPM includes school management activities such
as occupant practices and education, custodial practices, landscaping,
preventative maintenance, record keeping, notification, pesticide purchase
and storage as well as, judicious use of conventional control methods.
