Using this approach takes lessons learned in entomology, biology, animal behavior and horticulture. We then use this knowledge to make a pest control plan that is low-impact and effective. The IPM approach is endorsed by many reputable organizations, including the Environmental Protection Agency. IPM is widely reputable because it focuses on making slight modifications to the surrounding environment and only turning to chemical interventions when absolutely necessary.
