The article discusses the integrated pest management (IPM) approach implemented in school systems in New York. The Lakeville Elementary School in Nassau County, the North Rockland High School in Rockland County and other schools in the state manage pests using alternatives to pesticides. The changes to PM implemented by David Kincaid, the district consultant for health and safety hired by the Great Neck School Board in 1986, are tackled. A Pest Control Unit at the University of Rochester also implements IPM.
