Abstract: In the past IPM''s major focus had been the growing of food crops. In recent years there has been a growing interest in developing IPM approaches for building and landscape pests in homes, schools, industries, businesses, parks and many othercommunity and public places. IPM is a way of thinking about a systems approach to pest management decision making. An IPM program integrates health, safety, environmental, economic, aestheticand other considerations with a deep understanding of the pests life cycle and biology and human-pest interaction. Typically, IPM programs use a combination of a wide range of pest management strategies to avoid pests problems - of which pesticides are usually the last choice.
