Integrated Pest Management

Integrated pest control management (IPM) is a process for achieving long-term, environmentally sound pest suppression and prevention through the use of a wide variety of technological and management practices.  Control strategies in an IPM program include:

  1. Structural and procedural modifications to reduce food, water, harborage, and access used by pests.
  2. Pesticide compounds, formulations, and application methods that present the lowest potential hazard to humans and the environment.
  3. Non-pesticide technologies such as trapping and monitoring devices.
  4. Coordination among facilities management programs that have a bearing on the pest control effort.
