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:

  1. 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.
  2. A verifiable IPM Program must be in place for each building.
