Integrated Pest Management

Day 7 – Integrated Pest Management

What is Integrated Pest Management? Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a science-based approach that combines multiple techniques to manage noxious weed species effectively and at a lower cost (Regional IPM Centers). The five steps in IPM include:

  1. Identification/Monitoring
  2. Evaluation
  3. Prevention
  4. Action
  5. Continued Monitoring

Below are a variety of resources to learn more about utilizing IPM on our Montana landscape. Thank you for participating in MNWAW 2023!
