A brief description of the IPM plan(s) :

Ball State University’s Landscape Services has long practiced Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices, first implementing this approach in 1993. The university’s grounds were developed and maintained in accordance with the following four-tiered approach: 1) Set action thresholds, 2) Monitor and identify pests, 3) Prevention and 4) Control. All areas of campus are covered by the IPM program, but the threshold levels may vary.
