Pest Problems and Solutions: Integrated Pest Management

Are pests bugging you?  Integrated Pest Management (IPM) offers effective techniques and less-toxic products for controlling common pests.  Learn before you spray: the type, method of application, and quantity of pesticides applied on land can be harmful to people and animals and wash into creeks and the bay, endangering local fish and wildlife. There are effective and less-toxic solutions on the Integrated Pest Management sites Watershed Watch and Our Water Our World.

Specific Pests 

For more information about controlling ants, aphids, cockroaches, fleas, mosquitoes, rats, snails, slugs, spiders, yellowjackets, and weeds with less-toxic methods and products, visit Watershed Watch for Gardeners.
