Pest Management in Schools
Schools must manage pests to prevent injury, disease and damage to property, maintain buildings in sound condition, prevent the loss of aesthetic amenity, minimise disruption to teaching and sporting activities, and arrest the spread of pests from the school into the surrounding community and environment.
First published in August 2008, this web publication has been prepared by the APVMA to address community concerns about the use of pesticides in schools, and provide guidance and information on the safe and effective use of pesticides in this situation. It is intended for managerial and teaching staff, students, parents, school councils, pest control operators, local government officers and the general public.
