  10. What You Will Gain IPM will give you… • A healthier building: Fewer asthma attacks, less exposure to pesticides, and less of a chance you will take pests home. • Fewer complaints: A Boston Housing Authority development reduced cockroach work orders by 68% after one year of IPM. • Fewer pests: You can stop infestations from growing and spreading disease. IPM Training for Owners & Managers, October 8, 2009

  11. “We do IPM because it is the right thing to do and because it works. Allowing our residents to live in a pest-free home is a basic service as well as a huge quality of life issue.” ––Gail Livingston Director of Operations and Property Management Boston Housing Authority IPM Training for Owners & Managers, October 8, 2009

  12. IPM and Healthy Homes • Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a key part of a nationwide Healthy Homes movement to reduce housing-based health hazards. • A healthy home is: • Dry • Clean • Ventilated • Safe • Contaminant-free • Maintained • Pest-free IPM Training for Owners & Managers, October 8, 2009

  13. HUD’s Voluntary Guidance • “Offers the potential efficacy of pest elimination while protecting the health of residents and staff.” • “Will extend the useful life of property and, thereby, generate significant savings that offset costs of the pest control operations.” • “Effective in preventing moisture intrusion and accumulation.” IPM Training for Owners & Managers, October 8, 2009

  14. HUD’s 10 Elements to a Successful IPM Program • Communicate Policies • Identify Problem Pests • Monitor and Track • Set Thresholds for Action • Improve Non-Pesticide Methods • Prevent Pest Entry and Movement • Educate Residents and Update Leases • Enforce Lease • Use Pesticides Only When Necessary • Post Signs IPM Training for Owners & Managers, October 8, 2009

  15. Another View of IPM • Invest time and materials for repair and education. • Protect through exclusion, sanitation, and careful product choice based on least risk to human health and the environment and compatibility with other management practices. • Maintain with monitoring, communication, and documentation so that infestations do not grow. IPM Training for Owners & Managers, October 8, 2009

  16. Concerns with Pesticides Pests can become tolerant of or avoid pesticides. Risk from exposure may outweigh the benefit of killing pests. Possible harm to pets and wildlife. Certain populations may be especially vulnerable or sensitive to some pesticides: Elderly; children; pregnant women People with breathing or lung disorders such as asthma People with multiple chemical sensitivities IPM Training for Owners & Managers, October 8, 2009

  29. Think Like a Cockroach IPM Training for Owners & Managers, October 8, 2009

  30. IPM in Practice • Cockroaches • Need food and water. • Are most active at night. IPM Training for Owners & Managers, October 8, 2009

  31. Inspect Trash chute Boiler room • Look for evidence where cockroaches would find food, water, or a hiding spot: up, down, behind, and under. • Think like a cockroach – look in hidden areas. IPM Training for Owners & Managers, October 8, 2009

  32. Monitor Monitor by placing sticky traps near areas where cockroaches might travel—at corners and near warmth, food, and water. IPM Training for Owners & Managers, October 8, 2009

  33. Sanitation • Good sanitation makes pest control work. • Eliminate hiding spots, food, and water available at night by- reducing clutter;- throwing away dead cockroaches;- cleaning frass and areas where there were cockroaches with simple soap and water. IPM Training for Owners & Managers, October 8, 2009

  34. Exclusion • Seal or fix cracks, peeled wallpaper, or holes that cockroaches could get through with • caulk; • copper mesh; • screens; or • door sweeps on boiler rooms and exterior doors. IPM Training for Owners & Managers, October 8, 2009

  35. Targeted Chemical Use • Sanitation first! • Maintenance staff and residents should not spray. Spraying should be a last resort and done only by a PMP. • Read the ENTIRE pesticide label before buying, using, storing, or disposing of a product. • The label is the law! • Follow the label directions closely. IPM Training for Owners & Managers, October 8, 2009

  36. Baits The most effective pesticide option. Won’t work if contaminated by strong- smelling cleaners or other chemicals, pesticide sprays or foggers, or nicotine from cigarette smoke. Use in every room. Bait Station Gel Bait IPM Training for Owners & Managers, October 8, 2009

  37. Baits • The bait needs to be the only food in the area—sanitation first! • Slow to kill: Cockroaches feed on the bait, take it back to their hiding spots, feed their friends, and THEN they’ll drop dead. IPM Training for Owners & Managers, October 8, 2009

  38. Insecticidal Dusts • Active ingredients may be boric acid or diatomaceous earth • How they kill cockroaches: • Scratch their outer layers • Dry them out • Plug their breathing holes • Long-lasting IPM Training for Owners & Managers, October 8, 2009

  39. Insecticidal Dusts Effective if used correctly. Light dusting instead of piles. Use in walls before fixing them. Under and behind cabinets at turnover or when making large repairs…but clean first! Incorrect use of insecticidal dust IPM Training for Owners & Managers, October 8, 2009

  40. Insect Growth Regulators (IGRs) • Interfere with cockroach growth and reproduction: when they shed to grow up, the new exoskeleton doesn’t fit • In baits, sprays, aerosols, and powders • Take a month to work • Stay effective for a long time • Compatible with other IPM methods; may enhance baits IPM Training for Owners & Managers, October 8, 2009

  41. Routine Spraying – Not Only Option We’ve learned a better way. Routine baseboard spraying is not part of IPM. IPM Training for Owners & Managers, October 8, 2009
