Integrated Pest Management, or IPM, involves pest prevention and proactive pest management.

By keeping pests out and removing sources of food, water and shelter, fewer pests are encountered and pesticides are used only as a last resort. This proactive approach focuses on long-term prevention and management strategies that are environmentally sensitive and economically beneficial, ensuring that pest control efforts are both sustainable and effective. Read on to discover how IKE’s successful implementation of IPM projects in schools across Indiana has set a standard for others to follow, and explore the resources we offer to support these initiatives.
