What is IPM?

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a process that uses all necessary techniques to suppress pests effectively, economically and in an environmentally sound manner. IPM involves planning and managing ecosystems to prevent organisms from becoming pests. This requires identifying potential pest problems through monitoring and recording weather and pest population levels and establishing thresholds to make treatment decisions to reduce pest populations to acceptable levels. Management strategies may include a combination of biological, physical, cultural, mechanical, behavioral and chemical controls. Equally important is evaluating the effectiveness of the treatments.

 

IPM Council of Canada

The IPM Council of Canada (the Council) brings together industry associations and groups committed to having IPM as the standard in turf, landscape care, structural and public works vegetation management. The Council believes that science has shown IPM ensures environmental sustainability and minimizes the requirement for pesticides.

The Council consists of up to two representatives from various industry groups with only one vote per industry sector. This ensures that no one sector can have undue influence over the decisions of the Council. The Council is responsible for the general administration of the IPM Accreditation Program.
