Integrated pest management (IPM) is a sustainable approach to managing pests.

IPM Strategies

Our IPM sites for Field Corn, Greenhouse, Nursery, Small Fruit, Tree Fruit, Grapes, Turf, Vegetables and Weeds Programs are designed to provide information to growers and commercial interests.  

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.
