Institution’s grounds are developed and maintained in accordance with an integrated pest management plan that adheres to the following four-tiered approach:

1)      Set action thresholds

2)      Monitor and identify pests

3)      Prevention

4)      Control


This credit applies to all institutions with cultivated grounds comprising one or more percent of the total area of the campus.


Institutions earn the maximum of 2 points for this credit if all campus grounds are covered by a four-tiered integrated pest management plan.  Incremental points are available based on the percentage of campus grounds that are maintained in accordance with such a plan.  For example, an institution where half of the campus grounds were covered by a plan would earn 1 point (half of the points available for this credit).



Report on the plan or plans that are being followed currently.
