Integrated Pest Management for Child Care Centers Video Series (En Español)

Back to Child Day Care Facilities IPM Home


Do you want to train your staff in some simple IPM practices? DPR’s new IPM videos for child care centers can help get you started.

Pests can be a nuisance or even a health hazard in child care centers. Getting rid of them without using a lot of pesticides takes common sense, good cleaning practices, and some simple tools. These new videos, produced by the Growing Up Green Child Care IPM program at the California Department of Pesticide Regulation, walk you through the process of integrated pest management (IPM), with demonstrations of tools and practices filmed in real child care centers.
