IPM in Schools

Sixteen school districts, serving 58% of the students in Colorado public schools, participate in IPM.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a prevention-based, highly effective approach proven to reduce pest complaints and pesticide use by up to 90% in schools and other public buildings. IPM practices such as sanitation and exclusion also improve food safety, fire safety and energy conservation. The IPM Institute of North America School newsletter  can help you start an IPM program in your school district. For more information, visit


What is School IPM?

School IPM is facilitated by the Colorado Coalition for School IPM (CCSIPM) and meets twice a year.  It’s a great opportunity to learn what’s happening with school IPM in Colorado and around the nation.
