Why ABC is the Perfect Fit to Service Schools & Day Care Facilities
Pests within a school environment are an unwelcome distraction. Not only can pests bite and sting, but they can pose additional health threats by provoking allergies and spreading pathogens. Therefore, in 1991, Texas passed a law requiring all public school districts to adopt an integrated pest management (IPM) program to promote a safe and healthy environment for students to learn and grow.
IPM employs multiple tactics focused on minimizing the environmental impact whilst optimizing the control of pests through sustainable means such as exclusion, habitat modification, and effective sanitation. At ABC Home & Commercial, we partner with your school district’s IPM coordinator to customize pest threshold levels that trigger non-chemical and Green List low-toxicity remediation first in accordance with state law http://txrules.elaws.us/rule/title4_chapter7_subchapterh_division7.
With the well-being of students and staff foremost, we also extend the same level of care in preferentially selecting non-chemical and least-toxic approaches in our IPM program for private schools and daycares and will adhere to TDA service guidelines to safeguard against exposure to pesticides.
At ABC Home & Commercial, mitigating the risks from pests and the risks associated with pesticide use in educational institutions are our top priorities.
