A brief description of the IPM plan(s) :

The Grounds Department uses Integrated Pest Management (IPM) campus-wide. The director of grounds monitors all pest issues carefully before taking action. Preventive action is taken when possible to ensure pests do not become a problem. An action threshold evaluation protocol to ensure action is only taken when necessary is applied, then, when action is necessary, environmental conditions are taken into consideration when deciding which method to use. Control is only used when necessary and less risky pest controllers are used first. Environmental effects of control use are always taken into consideration.
