A brief description of the IPM plan(s) :

Our IPM includes host plant resistance and biological control. The focus is on prevention, avoidance, monitoring, and suppression of pests, chemicals, and pesticides. Early stages of the plan include pest scouting and use of pesticide thresholds. We only use pesticides when the campus population is at its lowest, typically during school breaks.
