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.

The Northeastern IPM Center provided a synopsis of two prevailing views on neonicotinoids and pollinators in their April 2015 newsletter. Their goal is to bring this scientific discussion to your attention, not necessarily to promote either view. Click here to read the Activist View: Growing numbers of scientists warn against neonicotinoid use and the Industry View: Growers are concerned about the health of bees, too.

The Colorado IPM YouTube Channel has a variety of videos on IPM practices, school IPM (by the Colorado Coalition) and faculty interviews.

The Center is based in the Department of Bioagricultural Sciences & Pest Management in the College of Agricultural Sciences. We strive to provide unbiased information and do not engage in any activity that creates the perception our organization endorses the products or services of any organization or business.
