The New Integrated Pest Management Paradigm for the Modern Age

Integrated pest management, also known as integrated pest control is a broad-based approach that integrates both chemical and non-chemical practices for economic control of pests. IPM aims to suppress pest populations below the economic injury level. Integrated pest management includes methods to maintain grain quality and inhibit insect infestation, monitoring tools and strategies to determine when corrective actions are needed, and management tools available to suppress infestations from stored product insects. The implementation of physical, mechanical, and chemical methods to monitor, prevent, and manage stored grain is key to IPM success in bulk storage and processing facilities and finally in the marketplace.
