IPM stands for Integrated Pest Management. It is a system for managing pest problems using a range of safe, least-toxic methods. IPM is integrated because it uses biological, organic, cultural, mechanical and chemical options for managing pest problems. For more information on the basics of IPM strategies, visit Cornell University's IPM in a Nutshell page.
Plant, insect and disease identification and diagnostic services are offered at CCE-Livingston for free. If necessary, samples can be sent to Cornell University for identification, at a charge of $25/sample. For more information about submitting a sample, visit: The Cornell University Diagnostic Laboratory.
