IPM provides more effective pest control while reducing pesticide use.
What is Integrated Pest Management?
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a proven, cost-effective strategy to combat pest problems without unnecessary pesticide use. IPM coordinates the use of pest biology, environmental information, and available technology.
How is IPM safer than regular pest control?
IPM reduces hazards by reducing overall pesticide use, using least hazardous pesticides when there is a demonstrated need, and taking special protective measures to reduce pesticide exposure living organisms and the environment.* (footnote) * IPM Institute of North America
How does IPM differ from Organic?
IPM allows the use of pesticides, fertilizers and other materials made from synthetic materials when necessary. Organic programs are restricted to pesticides made from natural materials. Pesticides used in organic programs can also have harmful effects on humans, animals and the environment, and must be used carefully and only when needed. IPM strategies can also help organic programs reduce hazards when used in conjunction.* (footnote) * IPM Institute of North America
