A brief description of the IPM plan(s) :

c. SUNY-ESF minimizes the exposure of campus members and visitors to toxic chemicals that may be used in the control of animal, insect and vegetation pests. ESF prohibits the use of toxic chemicals whenever options for alternate means of control are available. Animal pest control includes trap and release, physical deterrents (nix-a-lite, bird netting and ultrasonic harassment), products with natural deterrents (borax and soap sprays) and integrated pest management techniques. Plant pest control includes hand weeding, water/light deprivation and integrated pest management techniques. SUNY-ESF does not use fertilizer unless necessary. Organic fertilizers are used in lieu of chemical fertilizers whenever possible.
