A brief description of the IPM plan(s) :

Everything not a building or parking lot is covered by an IPM plan (75 acres). Grounds keeping has thresholds for pest populations and or plant damage before they will apply treatment. Most chemicals are fairly pest-specific, so pests must be identified. There is no defined monitoring plan. When grounds keepers see something odd while walking around campus, the problem is managed. With insects, there is little prevention because the campus has few pest problems. Prevention is used on weeds when a threshold is breached. For example, preventative treatment in specific areas of campus is the most effective strategy for managing crab grass. Another form of prevention is not planting species that have had pest problems in the past.
