What is

Integrated Pest Management (IPM)?

Pest management is as old as agriculture

The first use of pest management dates back to 3000 BC where cats were used in Egypt to control rodents damaging grain stores!

Pest management is defined as the regulation of a living organism (the pest) due to its adverse effects on humans and/or human activities.

What is Integrated Pest Management (IPM)?

IPM is the consideration of all available pest management techniques and other measures that discourage the development of pest populations, whilst minimizing risks to human health and the environment (CropLife International and Food & Agriculture Organization).

In other words, IPM is a tailored, site-specific strategy for managing pests in the most cost-effective, environmentally sound and socially acceptable way. It is a successful system that makes good use of local resources and the latest research, technology, knowledge and experience.
