Abstract: In the two years since this manual was first published, legislation has been passed requiring each Pennsylvania school district, intermediate unit, and area vocational/technical school to develop an integrated pest management (IPM) plan (Act 35 of 2003), and to notify parents and guardians 72 hours prior to any pesticide applications and post warning signs 72 hours prior to and 48 hours after any pesticide applications in school buildings or on school grounds (Act 36 of 2002). Therefore, this edition has several important changes, as well as some minor editorial revisions.
