IPM Statement
It is the goal of Anaheim Union High School District to implement IPM 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 less 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:
Promote a healthy school environment through strong IPM practices.

Specific information about monitoring and inspecting for pests, such as locations, times, or techniques include:
Scheduled inspections, visual inspection, bait stations and traps.
Pests and non-chemical management practices
This school district has identified the following pests and routinely uses the following non-chemical practices to prevent pests from reaching the action level:
PestRemove FoodFix LeaksSeal CracksInstall BarriersPhysical RemovalTraps/Exempt BaitsManage IrrigationMonitoringOther
Ants Treat with soapy water, OC Vector Control for Red Imported Fire Ants
Birds Visual deterrents, screens
Biting/Stinging Insects Distinguish between travelling swarms vs established hives
Cockroaches Treat with soapy water
Crawling Insects Includes crickets, silverfish, millipedes, centipedes, and beetles
Fleas Must inspect for infestation prior to treatment, vacuum daily
Flying Insects Includes flies, gnats, crane flies, fruit flies, and any other non-biting insects
Landscape insects High pressure hose, beneficial insects, proper plant care
Mosquitos Contact OC Vector Control as needed
Red Imported Fire Ants
Spiders Crush with stiff bristle broom, or vacuum
Termites Contact licensed structural pest control operator
Weeds Mechanical and physical removal, mulch
Chemical pest management practices

If non-chemical methods are ineffective, the school district will consider pesticides only after careful monitoring indicates that they are needed according to pre-established action levels and will use pesticides that pose the least possible hazard and are effective in a manner that minimizes risks to people, property and the environment.

This school district expects the following pesticides (pesticide products and active ingredients) to be applied during the year. (This list includes pesticides that will be applied by school district staff or licensed pest control businesses.):
