IPM for Homes
Benefits of IPM
- Reduces the need for pesticides by using several pest management methods;
- Shields the environment from excessive or unnecessary pesticide applications;
- Fosters clean water supplies. Everyone lives in a watershed; if water leaving your home contains pesticides, these can pollute streams, groundwater, or coastal regions.
- Promotes sound structures and healthy plants. Well-maintained homes and lawns better withstand damage from pests.
