What is IPM?
IPM is an approach to pest management that allows managers to make informed decisions in selecting from a wide variety of pest control techniques and tools. Knowledge concerning pest life cycles and their interaction with their host and environment is used to determine which management tactics will be most effective while also being both economically and environmentally conscious.
