Integrated pest management (IPM) is a sustainable approach to managing pests. IPM practitioners base decisions on information that is collected systematically as they integrate economic, environmental, and social goals. IPM applies to any situation, agricultural or urban, and is flexible enough to accommodate the changing demands of agriculture, commerce, and society.
IPM emphasizes the integration of many pest suppression technologies:
Homeowners may find the sites made for growers useful for pest identification, but control methods are often not available to, nor practical for, homeowners. Our Homegrounds IPM site provides information directed to homeowners.
Our General site provides information, such as beneficial insects and animal pests, which can be useful to growers and homeowners.
