The Business Case for Integrated Pest Management in Schools
Description: The Northeast School IPM Working group collaborated with the IPM Institute of North America to develop and disseminate this publication, which highlights the economic benefits of school IPM. The publication cites cases from actual school districts (including Montgomery County, Maryland) showing annual cost savings from IPM adoption ranging from $1,000 to $32,000 and estimated savings of hundreds of thousands of dollars per district in increased student and teacher attendance and teacher retention due to improved indoor air quality.
