Gangloff-Kaufmann, Jody; Braband, Lynn
Integrated pest management is an ideal approach to pest problems in municipal settings, where facilities that are provided for the public should be maintained as safe and pest free as possible. The New York State IPM program was involved in many efforts to demonstrate and promote IPM in municipal settings in 2004. A rodent management project in a village municipal building demonstrated that mice could be managed using exclusion and trapping. Program staff conducted least-toxic pest management workshops for Onondaga County workers and schools within Onondaga County. Program staff members also taught IPM techniques to employees of municipal vector control programs. Lastly, the NYS IPM Program is provides expertise and IPM experience to two county committees charged with the implementation of pesticide reduction legislation.
