Safe Pest Control Practices for Schools & DaycaresAt Pratt, IPM principles guide all of our pest control treatments, but it’s especially necessary in areas with children. IPM is dedicated toward using the least harmful products in the least harmful amounts to solve the pest infestation. By using exclusion and other specific techniques, we can minimize pesticide use and eliminate pests even more effectively. Whenever prudent, cultural, natural, or mechanical techniques are used.
