Integrated Pest Management
To manage pests, it pays to take an integrated approach. An Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Policy uses an organized program of pest management techniques to suppress pest populations. One of the key ideas in IPM is that pest control measures are only needed when their numbers warrant this action.
