School IPM Workshops Scheduled!

The deadline for implementing an IPM Plan for all NC Public Schools is October 1, 2011.

In an effort to help school systems that have not yet (or are still in the process) of putting together and implementing an IPM Plan, NCSU is offering several regional workshops for IPM Coordinators and maintenance personnel. We will have 2 CCU’s of P-phase recertification available.

During the workshop, we will distribute IPM kits for school systems to use to conduct their own in-house training and information sessions about School IPM for staff, teachers, parents, and other interested parties. Each IPM kit contains:
  • A collection of common insect pests
  • A CD of Powerpoint presentations and scripts for use in IPM training
  • A DVD on School IPM (produced by Dr. Godfrey Nalyanya before he left NCSU)
  • A set of identification guides and CD’s donated by Syngenta.

The topics for the workshops will include:
  • How to use the training materials for promoting IPM in your school
  • Handling bed bugs found in schools
  • School IPM, from start to implementation – problems and solutions

The following workshops have been scheduled. These are the last workshops that will be offered before the October 1, 2011 deadline. There is no cost to attend the workshops, however, you must pre-register to attend so we will have enough material to distribute. Please contact Patty Alder at 919.513.3805 or to register.
