What Is Integrated Pest Management
Integrated Pest Management, also referred to as IPM, uses all means available to keep pests from becoming a problem in a given situation. Using biological, cultural, mechanical, physical, and chemical control methods, it often depends on chemical control as a last resort.

See Integrated Pest Management For Homes for some good guidelines, tips, and ideas on how these methods can be applied in homes and businesses outside the agricultural realm.
