To Keep Pests Away Use an

  IPM can be defined as the practice of preventing or suppressing damaging populations of insect pests by application of the comprehensive and coordinated integration of multiple control tactics.


Tactics are the various control methodologies, e.g., chemical, biological, cultural. Strategies are the planned manipulations undertaken to optimize the dynamic integration of control methodologies in the context of their economic, environmental and social consequences.  


The philosophy is holistic, but deeply rooted in applied ecology.*


This concept of a multi-layered approach to pest management will likely result in additional savings of time and resources for the DIY pest controller.  



* from Radcliffe's IPM World Textbook 

IPM Method Highlights for the DIY Pest Controller

Monitor Your Environment: Repeatedly review your home and yard for changes.

    • If you notice changes in your environment, pay attention and take notes.
    • Do you see a new insect, changes in foliage color or texture, odors in your home, etc?
    • Have a base line for normal so that you are aware of variances.  

***Take photos with your mobile phone to assure positive identification of any new pests.***


Control Technique Selection: When you choose a pest control technique, you should make  your decision based on a combination of hazard level to the applicator, environment, cost effectiveness, and it's effect on non target organisms.
