Integrated Pest Management is an approach to reducing pest and pesticide risks including: An understanding of pest biology and ecology; Effective monitoring and inspection to detect pest problems and correct inadequate conditions; Action to control pest problems only when necessary; Choosing effective options with the least-risk to health and the environment; Use of long-term, preventative solutions to prevent and avoid pest problems. The IPM Star Certification Program recognizes and rewards IPM practitioners who meet a high standard for IPM in schools, childcare centers and school-age programs.  The program provides incentives for everyone to reduce pest and pesticide risks to health and the environment. IPM improves pest management results and reduces liability and risks from both pests and pesticides. IPM STAR certification is a voluntary step that clearly establishes your IPM competence in a way that is readily recognized by others both in and outside of your community.
