On the ground and in the lab, Integrated Pest Management develops and demonstrates innovative, integrated ways to deal with pests. For farmers: better ways to keep animals healthy, forecast pests, use beneficials and "soft" pesticides, and build soil health. For schools, workplaces, and parks: least-toxic, preventive ways to keep people free from pests while protecting the environment. For everyone: good science, good sense.
