Integrated Pest Management
IPM is an ecosystem-based strategy that focuses on long-term prevention of pests. It’s a combination of techniques like biological control, habitat manipulation, modification of cultural practices, and use of resistant varieties. Pesticides aren’t brought in unless the situation requires them, and treatments are targeted to avoid killing other species along with the nuisance pest.
IPM Minimizes Risk
Because it’s ecosystem-based, with IPM, there is little to no risk to human health, beneficial and nontarget organisms, and the environment. You can have confidence that you’re solving your pest problem without harming your family, pets, or other animals.
