Surveillance of the program

Once the Pest Control Committee has put together its Integrated Pest Management program, routine inspections and surveillance are required to insure that the program is being carried out. If professional pest control operators have been called in to implement certain phases of the IPM program, surveillance should also be made to insure that the contract is being fully implemented and that monies are being properly spent.

The Pest Control Committee should maintain liaison with conservation and professional pest control personnel to be kept abreast of continuing developments that might impinge on the IPM program. This relationship will also enable members of the committee to remain informed about training programs and seminars germane to their efforts. The committee may also want to subscribe to various trade publications of the pest control industry in their search for continuing knowledge and training.
