Before going into the development of an IPM (Integrated Pest Management) strategy it is important to get an idea of what IPM is. According to information found on the NYS IPM Program website,

IPM is:

  • your choice for solid science and sound solutions in dealing with pests. The NYS IPM Program promotes safe, least-toxic solutions to both pest and pesticide problems.
  • integrated because it brings together, or integrates, a range of biological, organic, cultural, mechanical, and chemical options for pest problems. And it's about management because you can only manage pests - you can't eliminate them.
  • no longer just focused on insect pests, the range now includes fungi, bacteria, viruses, weeds, wildlife, and more.
