Subject: Questionnaire on Integrated Pest Management

Questionnaire on Integrated Pest Management

From: Rachael Arenstein <rachaelarenstein>
Date: Monday, January 23, 2006
One of the primary results of the 2005 Integrated Pest Management
Working Group meeting is the creation of a website
<URL:> which is now live.  The IPM Working
Group is a group of museum professionals concerned about IPM issues,
who meet on an ad hoc basis.

While much of the site is still a work in progress, the group has
developed a questionnaire to assess the needs of the museum
community with regards to Integrated Pest Management.  The goal is
to survey the current status of pest management in institutions and
determine what is needed to improve that effort.  This feedback will
allow participants at future IPM Working Group meetings to more
specifically meet the IPM goals of the museum community.

All information gathered in this questionnaire is confidential; the
names of individuals and institutions that participate will not be
posted.  A compilation of results and statistics will be posted at
<URL:> for the benefit of all readers
after the upcoming 2006 IPM Working Group meeting.  We are
particularly eager to have as many responses before the meeting,
which will be held February 27-28, 2006.

As an extra incentive (as if helping the cause of museum pest
management were not enough) the first 50 people to complete and
return their questionnaire will receive a free identification poster
entitled "Common Museum Pests of North America", courtesy of Insects
Limited, Inc.  In order to receive the poster all identifying
information must be filled out (i.e. name, institution, mailing
address, etc.).

Feedback on the site can be sent to Rachael Perkins Arenstein
<rachaelarenstein [at] hotmail__com>.  Please put IPM website in the
subject line or messages will not be opened.  Thank you for your
