Integrated pest management (IPM) starts with proper identification and the understanding of what is and is not a pest. This pocket-guide was produced to help people realize not all insects are pests (greater than 95% are not),and that beneficials are available naturally or can be introduced into the landscape to manage pest species. This guide can help reduce the use and dependency on pesticides and the use of poisons in landscapes where people work and play. It is designed to assist homeowners and landscape professionals in the identification and familiarization of common pests and beneficial organisms.
