OP-9: Integrated Pest Management
The size of the campus grounds :
The size of campus grounds that are maintained in accordance with a four-tiered IPM plan :
A brief description of the IPM plan(s) :
Marquette’s pest management contractor’s Integrated Pest Management plan is as follows:
1) Action Thresholds
Action thresholds are set at 0 on campus, although the control strategy may be mechanical, cultural, sanitation, exclusion, chemical, or a combination of one or more.
2) Monitor and Identify Pests
Monitoring devices are places out strategically throughout campus to help us determine:
• What pests we are dealing with
• How many
• Life stages
• Rodent control devices are placed on the interior and exterior.
• Chemical applications are applied to cockroaches in potential harborage sites.
• Detailed reports are left with the main contact to address any sanitation or structural deficiencies that may contribute to a pest infestation.
When all of the above steps are adhered to, the end result would be to manage any pest infestations.
These guidelines are practiced throughout all buildings on campus.
