These actions are important parts of any IPM endeavor:
  • Identify the pest in the most specific terms possible
  • Learn about the pest's biology (habits, life cycle, needs and dislikes)
  • Take steps to exclude the pest from the area, if possible
  • Try to remove the pest's food, water and shelter
  • Determine the pest's travel patterns and find their home-base
  • Identify all of your control options (the "tools in the toolbox") before acting
 IPM is a combination of common sense and scientific principles. It's a way of thinking about pest management that values:
What is IPM?

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a method that focuses on knowing the pest in order to prevent pests from getting out of control. IPM is safer because non-chemical methods are the first line of defense. If chemicals must be used, always choose less hazardous products. Be sure to read warning labels before using any chemical products.

Use IPM to eliminate pests safely

Step One:
Find out what kind of pests you have and where they are coming from. Each pest has different habits so it's important to "know your enemy!" For rodents and roaches, sticky traps can tell you what and where they are.

Step Two:

All pests look for food, water and shelter. If you understand what they want, you can take it away. This is the most important step in IPM and prevention! Seal entry points such as gaps in walls, pipes, pavement and other surfaces using caulking, steel wool, or other pest-proof materials for.

Step Three:
Use traps and baits first, along with less-toxic dusts such as boric acid.
