Pesticides Use Information

We would like to inform you that an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach for controlling insects, rodents, and weeds will be used at Bonita Unified School District during the 2022-2023 school year.  The IPM approach we will be using focuses on making the school buildings and grounds an unfavorable place for pests to live and breed.  Through maintenance and cleaning, we will reduce or eliminate available food and water sources, and hiding places for the pests. We will also routinely monitor the school area to detect pest problems and prevent the pests from becoming established. Some IPM techniques we will employ include monitoring, increased sanitation, sealing entry points, physically removing the pest, and modifying storage practices.
The Healthy Schools Act requires all California school districts to notify parents and guardians of pesticides they expect to apply during the year.  We expect to use the following pesticides in your school this year:
Bayer Deltadust insecticide, Bayer Finale herbicide, Bayer Premise 2 insecticide, Bayer Premise Foam for termites, EcoPCO aerosol unscented insecticide, EcoPCO AR-X aerosol insecticide, NiBan-FG silverfish solution, Onslaught insecticide, Quali-Pro Prodiamine 4L, Speed Zone herbicide for turf, Sygenta Advion cockroach gel bait, and Syngenta Advion fire ant bait.
In addition, the Bonita Unified School District periodically contracts with Janus Pest Control for bee management. This generally does not require the use of a pesticide.
You can find more information regarding these pesticides and pesticide use reduction at the Department of Pesticide Regulation’s Web site at .
You may view a copy of the district’s integrated pest management plan in the school office. It is also located online at:
If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Robb Harrison at (909) 971-8320.
Additionally, parents or guardians may request prior notification of individual pesticide applications. People listed on this registry will be notified at least 72 hours before pesticides are applied. Exempt pesticide applications do not require individual notifications.  If a chemical application must be made to control an emergency pest problem, notice will be provided as soon as possible after the application.
If you would like to be added to the registry for individual notifications, please print the document found at this link: Pesticides Registry Request. Please complete the document and return it to your school site.
