What is Integrated Pest Management?
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an environmentally sensitive approach to long-term pest and weed management to prevent damage to homes, gardens, or landscapes. It is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment. A major goal of IPM is to reduce or eliminate the amount of chemicals, such as pesticides, that are used in pest prevention and control.
