Now more than ever, it is crucial to evaluate your approved pesticides list and pesticide use protocol with your pest management company and staff. Reviewing your IPM practices will greatly reduce the use of hazardous pesticides that may exacerbate patients’ COVID-19 symptoms and support a safe environment for vulnerable patients and essential staff.
The IPM Project is available to review your vendor pesticide use log book to offer feedback on which products can exacerbate COVID-19 symptoms and recommend safer products and practices.
Especially vulnerable to toxic effects of pesticides are the ill, the elderly, pregnant women, chemically sensitive individuals, infants and children.
