INFORMATIONAL

TO: Division Superintendents
FROM: Paul D. Stapleton
Superintendent of Public Instruction
SUBJECT: Integrated Pest Management Assistance


Enclosed are the results of a questionnaire you completed in July 1999 for the 
Office of Pesticide Services.  The results indicate that most school divisions 
are using Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices and a large number of divisions
indicated the need for assistance in evaluating current pest management practices.  
This assistance is being offered at no cost by American Pest Management, Inc., 
through the Office of Pesticide Services.

Please call Dr. Richard D. Kramer at (301) 891-2600, if you would like to schedule
a visit to address your questions and needs.  Dr. Kramer would like to schedule 
as many visits as possible before the end of the calendar year so you will need to 
call as soon as possible to reserve a time.

If you have any questions regarding this assistance please call Mr. David Boddy 
at (804) 224-2035.
