  • Integrated Pest Management (IPM) - Definition, Methods, & More

    Integrated pest management, referred to as IPM for short, is the number one way to protect your garden from infestations.

    But the best part about this methodology? It doesn’t always involve chemical intervention. This is a win-win for all involved, from you and your consumers to the environment.

    So why aren’t more commercial growers implementing their own integrated pest management methods and strategy? The short answer is it’s far more complex than simply spraying your plants with an insecticide at the first site of bugs. Spraying is easy.
