IPM or Integrated Pest Management is the best way to manage pests in any situation. The concept of IPM originated in agricultural environments, but IPM principles can be applied to any environment. Some non-agricultural environments created by humans for specific needs and activities, are described as “community environments”. These are different from agricultural or natural environments, and therefore IPM strategies in these environments also varies, although IPM principles are the same. IPM in community environments is Community IPM.
The UA Community IPM Program has Indoor and Outdoor components.
