The data resources of university extension programs and government regulators are often compartmentalized within their respective agencies. The California Department of Pesticide Regulation knitted together its product, label, and toxicological databases with peer-reviewed pest management recommendations from the University of California to create School IPM HELPR (Health and EnvironmentaL imPact Resource). This prototype web resource allows users to select and compare tactics used for common school pests, with a full complement of preventive practices, links to the pests’ biology, and lists of pesticide products available. The author will summarize the creation of School IPM HELPR and demonstrate its use.
