The Connecticut State Legislature is currently considering House Bill 5418, a bill that would implement an integrated pest management (IPM) program in Connecticut schools. The bill would ensure the necessary control of harmful pests on school grounds, and provide children with a safe learning environment.
Opponents of the bill have been active in attempts to stop the legislation. The opposition’s stance, however, is based on emotion, not science. HB 5418 gives schools the ability to strategically and effectively control pest problems on school grounds.
