Integrated Pest Management
It is the goal of the Escalon Unified School District to implement Integrated Pest Management by focusing on long-term prevention or suppression of pests through accurate pest identification, by frequent monitoring for pest presence, by applying appropriate action levels, and by making the habitat lass conducive to pests using sanitation and mechanical and physical controls. Pesticides that are effective will be used in a manner that minimizes risks to people, property, and the environment, and only after other options have been shown ineffective.
Our pest management objectives are to prevent and eliminate pests by reducing the attractants and desirable environments for pests in our district. It is our goal to treat existing or occurring infestations in the most efficient and safe manner for students and staff.
