What is IPM?

IPM stands for Integrated Pest Management. In IPM, we learn about our pests and select the best control methods to manage pests with the least effect to people, pets and the environment. By anticipating and preventing pest activity and combining several pest control methods, you can achieve long-term results. Get started with steps for successfully implementing IPM in your school!
