Integrated Pest Management, or IPM, is the process of using many different and effective methods to control unwanted pests (ie. Buckthorn, Canada Geese, mice in buildings, tree diseases). First, the pest situation is assessed, and pest management options are thoroughly evaluated. The goal of IPM is to mitigate pest damage while protecting human health, the environment and economic viability. In no case are we attempting to eliminate pest species, but to bring them to a controllable and acceptable level.
To learn more about the components of an IPM program, go to the Minnesota Department of Agriculture website.
