What is your definition of Integrated Pest Management (IPM)?

We try to treat the root cause, not the symptom. In the case of weeds we focus on correcting soil chemistry, for insects we treat grubs with nematodes. We don't "integrate" synthetic herbicides or pesticides.

Our pest management is based on timing and environmental conditions. We treat insect/weed issues when they are present. We are proactive in working to correct soil conditions.
