The Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Law in Michigan

The Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act, Act 451 of 1994, as amended, and Regulation 637 require that before a pesticide application is made in schools, public buildings, and health care facilities, two things must take place:
 

  • A pesticide applicator must attend a Michigan Department of Agriculture and
    Rural Development approved IPM Training Program BEFORE making a pesticide
    application in schools, public
     buildings, or health care facilities.
     
  • A verifiable IPM Program must be in place for each building.
