Discussion questions
1.
2.
What design/construction tactics
have you used to successfully
prevent pest problems? We’d like
your ideas about what should be
added to these guidelines.
One of our next steps is to add
these guidelines to the LEED
green building standards. What
thoughts do you have about that
approach?
More discussion questions

4.
Where do you go to learn how to do
home repairs?
Where would you go to purchase the
materials you saw today?
Do you discuss pest management
with your building/renovation
contractors?
What do you think would drive
demand for pest-proofing during the
design phase of building?
