USET has two Environmental Programs for Pesticides. These are Integrated Pest Management in Schools whereby USET is documenting how the Cherokee Indian Schools utilize Integrated pest Management to provide a safe environment for their students while controlling pests at the same time. This will be documented by USET following a baseline inspection so all other USET Tribes may use this information to do IPM at their respective schools.
USET will host a Pesticides Workshop in 2014. The workshop is still under development but will be tailored to meet Tribal Needs. EPA has recently developed and is in process of implementing Pesticide Certification so that Tribes will be able to use restricted use pesticides. This will be addressed at the Workshop.
