Section II. THE PEST MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
Programs of properly planned and executed pest management operations
prevent undesirable infestations from developing on military installations. It is essential
that pest management operations be organized along functional lines geared to the
accomplishment of the mission--the elimination of harmful pests. A functionally
structured organization leads to a clear understanding of areas of responsibility,
provides each person assigned with an understanding of what must be done, and
greatly aids in ensuring that all work is accomplished. Although a definite organizational
structure will be helpful in the accomplishment of the mission, it is important that it not
be so rigidly structured that it loses its flexibility.
a. Pest management is a function of the Operations and Maintenance Division
of the DPW. Figure 1-1 shows the organization of a typical DPW.
