A brief description of the IPM plan(s) :
The university Facilities Management Outdoor Services Group (OSG) strives to limit the application of insecticides to control insect populations, and employs both Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and Plant Health Care (PHC) practices to that end. Pest populations management utilizes the most suitable IPM and PHC techniques including: cultural, fertilization, irrigation, release of beneficial insects, insect monitoring, resistant plant varieties, and plant diversity. Insecticide usage is generally limited to campus trees, and only for insects that directly influence tree mortality. These applications are timed to the insect’s life cycle.
