October Monthly Program Integrated Pest Management in the Home Garden

Utilizing an integrated approach to managing pests in a garden can help reduce the use of chemicals in your garden. This approach utilizes cultural, natural, and low-impact control before using more broad-spectrum pesticides that can harm pollinators and beneficial insects.

You will learn the concepts of Integrated Pest Management, a systematic approach to dealing with pest and disease problems, identify four beneficial insects to watch out for, and different low-impact control methods.
