IPM IN COLORADO
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.
A new study from Penn Medicine researchers in the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics demonstrated that bed bugs, like kissing bugs, can transmit the parasite that causes Chagas disease.
The Northeastern IPM Center recently hosted a web event — How can IPM help us save the pollinators? See the videoconference here.
The Colorado IPM YouTube Channel has a variety of videos on IPM practices, school IPM (by the Colorado Coalition) and faculty interviews.
