IPM less pesticides
The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), (IPM) integrated pest management is best defined as “a long-term, effective, and holistic approach to managing pests of all kinds by carefully combining various interventions (e.g., education, code enforcement, rodent proofing, poisoning) in ways that minimize environmental hazards and deficiencies that affect people’s health.”
IPM less pesticides = the new way to manage pests, all the tools to get rid and prevent pests. If you do a home seal, this reduces the risks of pest and reduces pesticide usage. So lets say you have scorpions and you’re thinking what can I do as the homeowner?
1. Home seal.
2. Consistent pest control, not random whenever you think about it.
3. Caulking holes and ????
4. Clean up back yard, no fruit and trash.
5. Black lighting for scorpions.
All these things mitigate the use of pesticide, therefore this = less pesticide usage.
