The California Department of Pesticide Regulation offers a free, information-filled calendar, designed to help school maintenance personnel manage and keep records of all manner of pest problems that may afflict schools, as well as our homes and businesses. The information ranges from tips for controlling rats, mice, ground squirrels, pigeons and yellow jackets to tree debris and invasive weeds. Although the calendar was designed to assist schools in meeting the requirements of the Healthy Schools Act in recording pest control activities—and is an August 2010 though July 2011 calendar—it’s so chock-full of interesting and useful pest management information, from images of mouse droppings to dandelion control, that we wanted to pass along the information to our Sacramento pest control customers and friends.
