What is Integrated Pest Management in New Zealand?

The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) defines IPM as “a process involving common sense and sound solutions for controlling pests. The focus is on finding the best strategy for a pest problem, and not merely the simplest. Pest professionals never employ a ‘one-size-fits-all’ method in IPM but rather utilise a three-part practice: inspection, identification and treatment by a pest professional. Treatment options in IPM can vary from proactive measures like sealing cracks and removing food and water sources to reactive measures, such as utilising pest products, when necessary.”

According to the EPA, “Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. This information, in combination with available pest control methods, is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment.”
