Colorado Center for Integrated Pest Management



The Center for Sustainable Integrated Pest Management provides research and outreach in IPM practices for small and large farms, non-crop lands and waterways, households, landscapes, green industry, schools, buildings and communities. We encourage the use of multiple and flexible strategies for the control of insect pests, plant pathogens, and weeds, and in some situations (such as within structures) rodents and other vertebrates.  What is IPM?

The first step in an Integrated Pest Management program is to identify the pest. Not sure where to go? See  Pest Problem Solver.
