Integrated Pest Management
Integrated Pest Management, also known as IPM, is a process consisting of the balanced use of cultural, biological, and chemical procedures that are environmentally compatible, economically feasible, and socially acceptable to eliminate pest populations.
With IPM, many strategies are used together to avoid or solve a pest problem. For example, strategies would involve an understanding of:
- Pest lifestyles
- Knowing how to make structures unattractive to pests
- Knowledge of which pesticides are least toxic to pets and humans.
Understanding the individual property owner’s tolerance level is also important in knowing how aggressive pest treatment must be.
Why is IPM better than traditional pest extermination?
Older methods of “extermination” used increasingly powerful and poisonous chemicals to eradicate pests and resulted in environmental damage and the creation of chemically resistant pests. IPM is much gentler to the environment, and control methods are more narrowly targeted to specific pests.
Instead of artificial pesticides, many of the currently used chemicals are based on extracts from plants and are harmless to people and animals. This results in less use of pesticides, less potential danger to humans, pets, and plants, and less development of resistance to pesticides so that low doses remain effective.
