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

IPM is using the least toxic approach at key times. Cultural practices employed instead of herbicides or any other pesticides. IPM is knowing what plant material is on your sites and what it is susceptible to (insects or diseases).

 

Is pest management performed on a specific schedule?

Yes, according to temperatures, weather patterns and "growing degree days."

How are pest problems identified?

Identification is made using visual inspection and record keeping of site maps from previous years.

What practices do you use to prevent and/or control pests?

Cultural, mechanical and environmental options are used before applications.

Do you use biological controls?

Yes, beneficial insects are released.

Do you use borates?

No.

Do you use synthetic chemicals?

Synthetic chemicals are used only when the property is labeled as a worst case senario or on a "break out" at a new site. These might include Tempo (cyfluthrin), 2,4-D for spot treatments or Confront (Triclopyr) for spot treatments. We also use horticultural soaps and oils.

 

What are the top 10 pesticides you use/sell/recommend?

Horticultural soaps, horticultural oils and healthy, vigorous plant material.

If pesticides are used, how much are used per year of each?

As little as possible to specific plants that need treatment. No broadcast spraying.

Does your company perform habitat modification?

Yes. Re-designing: change poor lighting or drainage. Thinning out, pruning and installing plant material.

Do you use any physical or mechanical controls?

Pruning, arborest work and hand removal of egg sacks.
