Texas AgriLife Extension developed an educational manual and we have started to work with other school IPM programs to develop additional materials to assist school IPM coordinators with their IPM program.
The school IPM coordinator manual is designed to assist IPM Coordinators with implementing their IPM program. This manual offers simple topics on the basic tenets of IPM practices and how they affect schools. Included in the manual are management plans for Red Imported Fire Ants, German cockroaches, and yellow jacket wasps. This manual also contains several important reporting forms to help ensure that your IPM program stays on track.
