Public Health IPM Leadership Team

Purpose and Background

Purpose. The Public Health IPM Leadership Team serves as an executive committee that provides direction to the public health IPM components of our Extension IPM Program. Our multi-disciplinary Public Health IPM Leadership Team has experts from diverse fields relevant to public health pests and pesticide health issues. Specifically, this team will guide the activities of Assistant in Extension for Public Health IPM, Shujuan (Lucy) Li.

Housing IPM Project Team

Purpose and Background

Purpose. We will work with low-income elder/disabled housing facilities in Arizona, providing inspections and IPM recommendations to facilitate implementation of sustainable IPM strategies. We will provide IPM training for facility management teams and residents and measure changes in awareness, knowledge, skills, behavior and condition with respect to resident chemical use practices, bed bug avoidance and mitigation, and adoption of sustainable IPM strategies.

Through an existing national survey co-authored by PDs, we will identify constraints to greater adoption of IPM approaches for bed bug avoidance and mitigation, including acquisition risk factors, management practices, pesticide use, and personal and social impacts of bed bug infestations. Results from this survey will inform development of education materials to create public awareness and understanding of IPM programs for bed bugs and their economic, health and environmental benefits, through on-site education programs and through a national network of collaborators, that will maximize our impacts by adapting and disseminating the outreach materials that are developed.

Bed Bugs - Love At First Bite

 

Bed Bug Survey

University of Arizona and collaborating researchers hope to determine the real impact and social cost of bed bugs, the risks to individuals and society, as well as the significant causes of infestations.
We need your help! We ask that you consider completing our survey. The survey is voluntary, anonymous and should take about 10 minutes of your time. The survey is available in English and Spanish. There is no compensation available for your participation, but everything that we learn will go towards advising residents how to avoid acquiring bed bugs and improving bed bug management.
