What is Integrated Pest Management?

Integrated Pest Management, or IPM, is the practice of using a variety of cultural, biological, and chemical techniques to manage insects and diseases. One goal of IPM is to reduce any harmful impact chemicals may have on wildlife or on soil and water quality. IPM methods include proper plant selection, biorational and biological pest controls, using traps for monitoring insect populations, regularly examining plant materials for signs of trouble, and the judicious use of chemical pesticides applied at the most vulnerable time in an insect's life history.
