The size of campus grounds that are maintained in accordance with a four-tiered IPM plan :
A brief description of the IPM plan(s) :
The IPM plan includes: setting action thresholds; monitoring and identifying pests; prevention measures; and controlling outbreaks. The University of Vermont’s campus is a total of 305 acres. There are 200 acres of trees, shrubs, and turf that are maintained by the schools IPM. The Grounds Department monitors these acres regularly looking for evidence of pests. When pests are considered a problem, the department looks to traditional methods in dealing with them such as aeration and over-seeding. When these practices do not work, Grounds then works with the city and applies a chemical treatment (although these treatments are infrequent).
