Learn how to use the environment to your favor! Integrated Pest Management (or IPM) is a common sense approach to pest control that reduces reliance on chemical pesticides as a sole method of controlling pests. A combination of strategies is used to predict, prevent, and manage landscape insects and diseases. These IPM strategies are proactive, not reactions to the presence of a pest. IPM programs result in effective landscape pest control with diminished economic, health, and environmental risks.

Instructors include:
George Hamilton
