SCHOOL CHILD CARE FACILITY PEST CONTROL
 

The Indiana Pesticide Review Board is made up of over twenty members appointed by the Govenor. The Board is charged with developing pesticide regulation and pesticide policy for the State of Indiana. The Board has worked closely with the Office of Indiana State Chemist, school and child care professionals, lawn care and pest control professionals, and other agencies and advocacy groups to develop the Model Pest Control in Indiana School Policy and the Model Pest Control Policy for Indiana Child Care Facilities.

These model policies are not currently required by law or regulation. They have been developed and are being promoted for consideration of voluntary adoption and implementation by all schools and child care facilities in Indiana. However, it should be noted that a rule-making process has been initiated that will make many of the "School Policy" provisions into regulatory requirements.

CHILD CARE FACILITIES
In addition, to Board and State Chemist rules, it should be noted that a rule under 470 IAC 3-4.7-100 under the administration of the Division of Family Services prohibits the application of lawn care, insect and rodent control chemicals at a child care center when children are present.
