o No blanket-applications of pesticides shall be done to control pests, diseases, or weeds on campus grounds.

o Campus grounds shall be inspected for pest, disease, or noxious weed identification and threshold levels to determine economic and esthetic damage before determining treatment plan and schedule.

o A calendar shall be established to plot the expected life-cycles and appearance of pests, diseases, and weed populations on the campus landscape; to anticipate and plan prevention and treatment as-needed.

o When possible, only target applications are made to the infected plant materials.

o Future plant selections may be determined to select native and/or pest-resistant varieties.
