The size of the campus grounds :
The size of campus grounds that are maintained in accordance with a four-tiered IPM plan :
A brief description of the IPM plan(s) :
We monitor all of campus weekly throughout the growing season and our action thresholds are set at the economical threshold point. If there is a problem that will cost more to fix than to prevent, we would be obligated to chemically control that situation. The only exceptions would be for safety reasons, for example, a wasps nest in a landscape tree outside the main entrance of a building.
The website URL where information about the IPM plan(s) is available:
Of all the campus properties owned, only 200 acres are considered cultivated grounds. All cultivated grounds are maintained in the scope of IPM.
