Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Principles


Integrated Pest Management (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. 


IPM is not a single pest control method but, rather, a series of pest management evaluations, decisions and controls.


  • MONITOR AND IDENTIFY PESTS 

Not all insects, weeds, and other living organisms require control. Many organisms are innocuous, and some are even beneficial. IPM programs work to monitor for pests and identify them accurately, so that appropriate control decisions can be made in conjunction with action thresholds. 

Monitor and Identify Pests


  • PREVENTION

As a first line of pest control, IPM programs work to manage the crop, lawn, or indoor space to prevent pests from becoming a threat.These control methods can be very effective and cost-efficient and present little to no risk to people or the environment.​


  • CONTROL 

​IPM programs evaluate the proper control method both for effectiveness and risk. Effective, organic derived pest control products are chosen first. If further monitoring, identifications and action thresholds indicate that less risky controls are not working, then additional pest control methods would be employed.
