How we care for our farmland or parks, barns or homes, livestock or pets (not to mention each other) is critical for healthy ecosystems and a healthy planet. IPM provides research and guidance on
- how to maintain the hundreds of insects and other critters that pollinate our crops
- how to recognize invasives, new and old, that threaten our crops, our landscapes, and even our health
- how protect organic crops from insect and disease pests
Of course, pollinators, invasives, and organics are hardly our only environmental concerns. You could, for instance, go to What’s Bugging You? for information on coping with wasps, cockroaches, ticks, and more.
