What is Integrated Pest Management?
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a program that is based on prevention, monitoring, and control of landscape and turf pests which offers the opportunity to eliminate or reduce the use of pesticides. IPM does this by utilizing a variety of methods, including cultural, biological and structural strategies. West Bay Landscape uses the key principles of IPM on each and every property we oversee.
