Integrated Pest Management Practices for Rural Communities 1999
Project Leader: Kristen Stewart, Extension Educator, CCE Schuyler County
The objective of this project was to educate individuals in rural counties on environmentally sound and safe ways to manage pests.
The program targeted Chemung, Cortland, Tioga, Tompkins and Schuyler counties. The target audience included local residents, homeowners, Environmental Management Councils, municipalities, county officials, pesticide applicators and lawn and landscape professionals.
The session was developed to offer participants a broader perspective of what IPM is and how it is used as a pest management system to provide long term management of pests, not temporary eradication of them.
