WHAT IS INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT?


Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is the combined use of various methods and systems to manage your pest problems with Beneficial Insects. These methods may include some or all of the following; temperature control, humidity control, the use of resistant varieties, barriers, monitoring devices, the use of "beneficials" (Beneficial Insects) and the use of insecticides. The goal of IPM is to control your pest populations and to keep them below an "economic damage" level. The use of insecticides should be a last resort.


UNDERSTANDING THAT THERE IS NO CURE


There is no legal, non-restricted insecticide that will give 100% control of your pests. A limited amount of the pest will continue to survive in your crop, regardless of the method you choose for control. The proper use of "beneficials" or Beneficial Garden Insects is safer, less labor cost, and usually results in a higher production at a lower cost.


YOU ARE ORDERING 'SEED STOCK'


Ordering "beneficials" or Beneficial Garden Insects  is the same as ordering seeds or cuttings for your main crop. You are trying to establish your own population of "beneficials" or Beneficial Insects in your crop. It takes time to get these "beneficials" or Beneficial Garden Insects established. They must be ready and waiting for an invasion of pests from outside sources.


YOU ARE INOCULATING YOUR PLANTS


The beneficials predator or parasite will not survive without a low level of the pest present. The "beneficials" or Beneficial Insects either need the pest as a food source or as a method of reproduction. Establishing low levels of pests and "beneficials" or Beneficial Garden Insects in your crop is analogous to the technique of inoculating humans to develop resistance against serious diseases.
