Integrated Pest Management (IPM)

Integrated pest management, or IPM, is a process you can use to solve pest problems while minimizing risks to people and the environment. IPM can be used to manage all kinds of pests anywhere—in urban, agricultural, and wildland or natural areas. This section covers some work and information from Area IPM Advisor Cheryl Wilen, Ph.D. She works primarily with professional ornamental plant growers, pest control advisers, landscapers, and public agencies. Cheryl is also the Area Integrated Pest Management Advisor for Los Angeles, Orange, and San Diego Counties.
