A drive toward integrated pest management 

Integrated pest management (IPM) is an environmentally sensitive approach that combines scientific study of pest and pathogen lifecycles and how they interact with the environment.

IPM combines a variety of solutions that work together to provide effective disease and pest control with the least possible harm to people, property, and the environment.

Common biocontrol challenges 

Devising an alternative to chemicals means not only finding new ways to fight diseases, but also ways to overcome the shortfalls of the chemicals themselves. 

Some of the more common challenges include: 

  • Developed resistance. Many pests and diseases develop resistances to chemical controls. 

  • Harm to pollinators. Pollinators and other beneficial insects are often adversely affected by chemicals.  

  • Changing regulations and attitudes. Consumer and regulatory pressures are affecting chemical use and pushing for alternatives.
