IPM (Integrated Pest Managment)
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a combination of pest control strategies. IPM promotes the use of the least toxic method of pest control, proper selection and maintenance of plants, and allowing the natural enemies of pests to do their job. IPM is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. This information, in combination with available pest control methods, is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment.
