Title: Integrated Pest Management for Schools
Abstract: Safer Pest Control is working from the ground up to promote safe alternatives to pesticides in Illinois. Safer Pest Control Project N.F.P. (SPCP) is a non-profit organization dedicated to reducing the public health risks and environmental impacts of pesticide use and promoting safer alternatives in Illinois. We focus on children - especially those living in under-served communities - a population both critically vulnerable and disproportionately exposed to these toxic chemicals. SPCP not only promotes awareness about the dangers of pesticides, but also provides the people it serves with viable alternatives that are safer and more effective than conventional pest control methods.Topics provided in their list of resources includeyards and gardens, IPM in schools, a School IPM video and IPM in the homes.
