Elmore County Pest Abatement District

An integrated pest management program considers all available pest control actions and evaluates the potential interactions among various control tactics, cultural practices, weather, other pests and crop or rangeland to be protected.

Role of UI Extension, Elmore County

Since the majority of our land is owned by the federal and state government, the extension director facilitates, collaborates and coordinates the pest control policies and environmental issues with the governmental agencies to implement integrated pest management. The Idaho Department of Fish and Game currently holds an estimated 6,716 acres within the county borders. For control of pests in these lands, UI Extension, Elmore County has had an integrated pest management system.

For any county-wide infestation of grasshoppers, Mormon crickets or other agricultural pests, the extension director follows three steps:

  1. a needs assessment for situation analysis
  2. project(s) implementation(s)
  3. evaluation of outcomes

Mosquitoes: Today's Priority

Presently, the mosquito surveillance and control strategies are the top priorities. Therefore, this report (what report?) will emphasize the comprehensive plan(s) for mosquito IPM for the Elmore County Pest Abatement District.

Our integrated pest management (IPM) is an ecologically-based control strategy that relies heavily on natural mortality factors, such as natural enemies and weather. We seek out control tactics that disrupt these factors as little as possible. IPM uses pesticides, but only after systematic monitoring of pest population and natural control factors indicates a need.

Elmore County is:

  • 67.4 percent federal land
  • 6.1 percent state land
