Integrated Pest Management: A Guide for Managers and Owners of Affordable Housing
Published in 2007
Integrated Pest Management: A Guide for Managers and Owners of Affordable Housing is an important "how-to" tool for those who are charged with effectively managing and operating multi-unit housing. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a commonsense approach that first identifies the root of your pest problem and then prescribes the most appropriate treatment. Unlike traditional pest management, IPM addresses the causes of infestation, not just the symptoms, and focuses on preventing pest problems rather than reacting to them. Produced by HRiA's Asthma Regional Council on behalf of the Boston Public Health Commission, this important document is an important resource for understanding how to achieve success with implementing IPM, for the benefit of housing operators and their tenants alike.
