When you call a professional
  • Ask them how they treat pest problems.

  • They should provide MSDS info on chemicals used
  • Dont expect a PCO to do it all.
  • Pest management in your school depends on all
    school staff

16
Cost of IPM

  • Effectiveness of program, safety in pesticide
    reduction, reduction in illness

26
Bed Bug Myths
  • A FEW BED BUG MYTHS
  • Only dirty people get bed bugs.
  • Bed bugs are only found in places like
    apartments where people are crowded together
  • Bed bugs are only a problem for low income
    people.

27
Bed Bug Identification
  • Adult bed bugs are visible to the naked eye
  • They are brown and about ¼ 3/8 long when full
    - grown.
  • In the nymph stages, bed bugs are whitish and
    smaller, but they are still often visible.
  • They don't fly, but they are adept crawlers, and
    they move FAST! They scatter quickly if theyre
    disturbed

28
Bed Bug Lifecycle
29
Prevention
  • Your school needs to decide upon and develop a
    bed bug awareness program.
  • Providing identification information is the best
    info to provide.
  • The biggest issue with bed bugs in schools is
    ostracizing students if they are suspected of
    having bed bugs.

Bed Bug Treatments
  • Prevention
  • Heat treatment
  • Steam treatment
  • Chemicals
