4J Yellow Jacket Trapping Notification 2024

Posted Date: 3/22/24 (3:24 PM)

Monroe Families and Staff - 

Every summer, yellow jackets become a safety issue for 4J students, staff and community members, requiring hazardous nest removal, extensive labor and occasional pesticide treatments. As a preventative measure, 4J Facilities will be placing non-toxic pheromone yellow jacket traps out at schools to reduce the number of colonies that are established on campuses annually. 
Though these traps are intrinsically safe for staff, students and beneficial pollinators, they are considered a pesticide by ODA and the district is required to send out notifications, just as with other pesticide applications. All schools are part of this program.
