Integrated Pest Management is defined by the Environmental Protection Agency as “an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. This information, in combination with available pest control methods is used to mange pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment.”
