 IPM WARNING/CAUTION: The terminology IPM or Integrated Pest Management as used by the indoor pest control companies is meaningless. They become IPM experts by sitting in a good old boys meeting for 1 - 3 hours and are state qualified IPM practitioners, and then they continue to spray their poisons as usual!
Even the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is now distributing materials , e.g., "Integrated Pest Management in Schools" and "Pest Control in the School Environment: Adopting Integrated Pest Management" from a cooperative IPM effort with pesticide manufacturers, formulators and professional applicators, e.g., the pest control industry trade group RISE (Responsible Industry for a Sound Environment), the National Pest Control Association (NPCA) and the Professional Lawn Care Association (PLCAA) who paid for all of the printing and mailing.
RISE executive director Allen James said, "IPM, including the use of specialty pesticides, assures that our children and school personnel can enjoy a safe and healthy academic environment." The EPA material states, "There are, of course, many pest problems that require the use of pesticides." As you read and use this manual of Intelligent Pest Management you will find that volatile, synthetic pesticide poisons are really not needed, are harmful and actually increase pest problems, contamination and costs. You should never need to hire any professional poison applicators or use any dangerous synthetic pesticide poisons again!
Consultation Note: For a $30 annual personal fee, Get Set, Inc. provides free mail or phone consultations on all the materials covered in this manual/CD and any newly developed alternatives, techniques products and current health concerns.
