Pesticide Notification

The Edmonds School District uses Integrated Pest Management (IPM) modeled after Environmental Protection Agency recommended guidelines for the control of structural and landscape pests. IPM coordinates the use of non-chemical methods to prevent pest infestations, along with all available pest control methods when an outbreak occurs. These methods include physical (pruning), cultural (using disease resistant plants) and biological means (using Lacewings and Ladybugs), as well as the judicious use of chemicals. Unauthorized staff are not permitted to apply pesticide products at any school site or facility.

A notice will be posted in the main office 48 hours prior to the application of any biologic or chemical pesticide. It will provide the reason for application and the name of the product to be used. For individual notification, please contact your school’s main office. No notices will be sent when students do not occupy the school for at least two consecutive days after application. These procedures do not apply to emergency applications to control pests that pose an immediate health threat (e.g. stinging insects). If application is postponed due to weather, the notification process will be repeated.

For more information, please contact George Marschall, Maintenance Director, at (425) 431-7244.
