Control Pests and Reduced Your Chemical Footprint
If you are interested in sustainable gardening, you will want to learn about Integrated Pest Management (IPM). When you employ IPM, you are making a commitment to keeping pests from becoming a problem while minimizing the use of chemical pesticides that enter the environment. There are many aspects to an IPM program but the essence of a thorough IPM program is "the use of biological, cultural, mechanical, and chemical controls to ensure that pest populations are kept at levels that do not cause economic damage" (UC Davis, 2011).
