One response to this post.

  1. Integrated Pest Management or IPM is a pest management approach that makes use of simple yet effective and environmentally sensitive methods to deal with pests. As its name suggests, it is not a single pest-control solution. Instead, it is an approach that encompasses decisions, evaluations and controls that can be used to successfully manage and prevent infestations. IPM principles can be utilized in both the agricultural and non-agricultural settings, including homes, offices and gardens.
