Pest Proofing and Exclusion

As summer winds down and we prepare for fall and winter – are your school buildings ready?
Did you know a typical house mouse only needs the size of a dime (1/4 inch) to squeeze into your building?
The average roof rat or Norway rat only needs the size of a quarter to enter a structure.
Crickets, outdoor cockroaches and other crawling pests can gain entrance into your structure with less than ¼-inch gap under a door.

This informative webinar will discuss how you can prevent pest problems and how you and your staff can not only prevent pests, but also make your school buildings healthier.

The speakers are Dr. Thomas Green, who has been a national leader in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) for more than 20 years. Green has dedicated his career to help improve health, environment, and economics through IPM.
