dc.description.abstractThe status of School Integrated Pest Management (SIPM) in the schools of Georgia remains widely unknown. While the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) aspires to have SIPM implemented in all states by 2015, relatively little is known about the current pest control practices in schools in Georgia. An IPM criteria survey was conducted in five schools in Georgia in three counties; Bartow, Catoosa, and Coweta. All schools scored higher than a 90% on the survey and were all implementing IPM practices. Furthermore, a complete set of elementary, middle, and high school lesson plans were developed to be integrated into the school systems in Georgia to promote IPM education.
