What is Integrated Pest Management (IPM)?

Integrated Pest Management offers an impact-sensitive approach to controlling pests. It’s a combination of effective and common-sense practices. An IPM program can be used to manage pest damage in a very economical way. It’s an approach to pest control that also takes into consideration human health and environmental health.

How Does an Integrated Pest Management Program Work?

There are several elements to an IPM Program including:

  • • Thresholds – Before any actual pest control actions are taken, thresholds are used to figure the level of pest control needed.
    • Identifying and Monitoring Pests – While controlling some pests is necessary, not all pests need to be controlled. Some organisms are actually beneficial to an IPM program. A large part of this type of program will identify and monitor the pests on the property.
    • Prevention – Another aspect of an IPM program is prevention. This happens before control, as many pests can be prevented before they become a threat.
    • Control – Once all other aspects of the program have been deployed, control measures will be taken. This will include less risky pest control options first with targeted chemicals. If necessary, additional pest control methods will be used.

While some pest control methods will kill off pretty much any type of pest, an IPM program will only kill the pests that need to be killed. Other organisms will be left unharmed as they can be beneficial.
