Evaluation of School IPM

The last, yet integral step in IPM is to evaluate and record how well the method or actions worked and what happened.

Evaluation is built into on-going landscape monitoring and recorded on the Pest Control Activity Form.

Make notes regarding the following questions: Did actions have the desired effect? How much has the situation changed in a week? Was the pest prevented or managed to satisfaction? Was the method itself satisfactory? Were there any unintended side effects? What can be done in the future for this pest situation? Was this season wetter or dryer etc.?

Additionally, record any changes that could improve control if the same pest problem occurs in the future.

Documentation of the results of monitoring, control methods, and how well they worked is an essential component of IPM so we don’t have to relearn how to deal with the same problems over and over. The evaluation also shows where there is need for improvement and helps fine-tune future actions.
