Integrated Pest Management

It is the goal of BOMUSD to implement Integrated Pest Management (IPM) by focusing on long-term prevention or suppression of pests through accurate pest identification, by frequent monitoring for pest presence, by applying appropriate action levels, and by making the habitat less conducive to pests using sanitation and mechanical and physical controls.  Pesticides that are effective will be used in manner that minimizes risks to people, property, and the environment, and only after other options have been shown ineffective.  Spraying times and locations will be properly posted, and publicly notified at each site.
