University of Arizona -- School IPM Newsletter

The December Newsletter, "Pest Press" from the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension, is devoted to Integrated Pest Management (IPM) for pigeons at schools.  See the complete newsletter at the following link, University of Arizona Extension -- December Newsletter Birds, especially pigeons, are drawn to schools and have strong site fidelity.  Schools and students at lunch represent a reliable feeding opportunity for the birds and reinforces the often chronic pest problem. Based on the fact that children are especially vulnerable to pest and pesticide exposure, schools are considered especially sensitive areas.  The University of Arizona Western Region School IPM Work Group, three other Regional Work Groups and the IPM Institute provide guidance and the leadership for school IPM practices, nationwide.  Based on its safety profile and ease of use, OvoControl® P represents an especially useful and cost effective tool for school IPM.
