Landscape Pests: Integrated Pest Management Strategies for Controlling the Dastardly Dozen (Publication #B-1035)
Landscape Pests: Integrated Pest Management Strategies for Controlling the Dastardly Dozen lists and discusses 12 different landscape vegetation pests and shares management options for ways to control them. The 12-page report explains that Integrated Pest Management (IPM) uses a variety of methods to keep pest populations and their damage at acceptable levels. IPM seeks to manage, rather than eradicate, pests. "Because it is difficult to change attitudes and values, IPM is not always a favorite approach for pest management," the authors explain. "The positive results of IPM include proper pesticide use, minimal effects on humans and the environment, and improved cost effectiveness".
