Integrated Pest Management Plan

IPM is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current and comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. This information, when used in conjunction with available pest control methods, is best used to manage pest damage with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment.
