With over 80 million acres of land, 45,000 buildings and cultural landscapes ranging from croplands to historic rose gardens, they face every conceivable pest problem.
Since implementing an IPM program in the early 1980's, the Park Service has reduced pesticide use by over 60 percent while improving the effectiveness of our pest management efforts. Key elements in this success were formal training and the provision of printed and audiovisual materials. One of our products is an IPM Manual which is now available in a second edition. It provides descriptions of the biology and management of 21 species or categories of pests. The Park Service is pleased to offer this information to the IPM community.
