Georgia Integrated Pest Management

Welcome to the Georgia IPM Web site

What is Integrated Pest Management?  It is a science-based decision making process that employs biological, mechanical, cultural, and chemical control methods is such a way as to minimize economic, environmental, and public health risks associated with pests and pest management practices.

Integrated Pest Management is rapidly becoming the standard for handling pest problems in agriculture and urban settings.  Consumer concerns about pesticides and food safety are growing and placing increased pressure on land grant universities to provide growers with effective management strategies that minimize the impact of pesticides and fertilizers on food products and the environment.  Additionally, homeowners demand safe, effective pest management strategies for use in their own homes and gardens. 

This Web site provides information about the University of Georgia Integrated Pest Management program.  Further, we look to provide updates on valuable pest management information for homeowners and commercial operations.  Please check back often as we continue to build and update this site!
