    • Chapter 5: Integrated Pest Management
    • 5.1 What is a Pest?
      • Any organism that spreads disease, destroys property, competes with people for resources such as food, or is just a nuisance
    • Pesticides
      • People typically will use pesticides, like:
        • Insecticides
        • Herbicides
        • Nematicides
        • Fungicides
        • Rodenticides
    • Integrated Pest Management
      • IPM – an information-based approach to controlling pests
    • Why do we have a pest problem?
      • 98% of forests have been logged
      • Pest populations have been altered by humans
    • Forest Pests
      • Examples
        • Tent Caterpillars
        • Gypsy Moth Caterpillar
        • Canadian Geese
        • Mosquitoes
    • Exotic Pests

        • Ladybugs
    • 5.2 IPM in Practice
      • Six Steps of IPM
        • Identify your pest and the damage properly
        • Learn the biology of your pest
        • Survey for pest population
    • Six Steps of IPM
      • Establish action threshold (tolerance level)
      • Select management tactics
      • Evaluate results
    • Management Tactics
      • What you can do about it!
      • Use the IPM Pyramid
    • IPM Pyramid
      • First – Use Cultural/Physical Methods
        • Multi-cropping
        • Vacuuming
        • Screens
    • IPM Pyramid
      • Second – Biological/Genetic Methods
        • Biocontrol
        • Parasitoids
        • Genetic Engineering
    • IPM Pyramid
      • Third – Biorational Pesticides
        • Water Spray
        • Rotenone
        • Soaps
    • IPM Pyramid

        • Round up
