What is Integrated Pest Management (IPM)?
Integrated pest management, or IPM, is a process you can use to solve pest problems while minimizing risks to people and the environment. IPM can be used to manage all kinds of pests anywhere—in urban, agricultural, and natural areas. Integrating biological, physical/mechanical, cultural and chemical control strategies, adverse effects of pesticides are minimized and economic returns are maintained.
