What is the definition of Integrated Pest Management?
a pest management strategy that focuses on long-term prevention or suppression of pest problems through a combination of techniques such as monitoring for pest presence and establishing treatment threshold levels, using non-chemical practices to make the habitat less conducive to pest development, improving sanitation, and employing mechanical and physical controls. Pesticides that pose the least possible hazard and are effective in a manner that minimizes risks to people, property, and the environment, are used only after careful monitoring indicates they are needed according to pre-established guidelines and treatment thresholds."

what are 5 issues related to integrated pest management that affect the environment?
Integrated Pest Management can be practiced in most pest management situations. It is a process of setting threshold limits on pest activity Then instituting a process utilizi…ng mechanical, environmental, and least toxic to most toxic control measures based on size and scale as well as risk of pest infestation.
A complete strategy tailored to the facility and target which is minimally invasive and environmentally freindly. You use all tools including sanitation controls repairs etc. …to make facility less conducive and minimize pest pressure.
You would probably start with examining the structure for rodent access points like cable lines, telephone lines and openings allowing rodents to enter.
biological pest control is when a new organism is introduced into a new community and causes a problem so a new foreign organism is introduced. This has been integrated into m…anagement because they help to increase crop growth and production as well as it helps solve problems
Does crop rotation and biological control achieve long-term suppression of pests in Integrated pest management?
Sanitation, mechanical exclusion, and culural controls.
Integrated pest management uses every possible measure, short of maybe an atomic bomb, to control pests. but Synthetic pesticides is not used in intergrated pest management.
1. The small intestine is LONG- this ensures food remains in the small intestine long enough for the products of digestion to be fully absorbed into the bloodstrem. 2. The Sm…all intestine is HIGHLY FOLDED into villi (s. villus)- This gives a greater surface area for more efficient diffusion of products into the bloodstream. 3. The small intestine has a RICH BLOOD SUPPLY - Each villus has a network of capillaries so that the products of digestion are carried away from the small intestine efficiently. 4. The epithelium of the small intestine in the villi is only ONE CELL THICK - for easier diffusion of the products of digestion into the bloodstream. The walls of the capillaries are only one cell thick as well!!

Some of the benefits of Integrated Pest Management is that the decrease of the use of chemical application reduces the risk of bad side effects to staff, results in the savin…g of money and decreases the risk of property damage from the chemicals used.
integrated pest management is a process where people or organisations such as in New Zealand where DoC (department of Conservation) take measures to ensure the safety and surv…ival of native or endemic species. These species can be put in jeopardy when introduced pest species put pressures on their survival. E.g. Introduced Stoats are predators to Kiwi in New Zealand rendering them a critically endangered species. Pests are sometimes not introduced but simply become so through massive reproductive success periods. Integrated pest management serves to aim to reduce the amount of pests in areas where repercussions of their effects are felt.
Integrated pest management is an effective and environmentallysensitive. Impacts of pesticides and the management is the samething.
Integrated pest management uses things like, monitoring pests andsetting a threshold limit before using pesticides, and selectingpest resistant crops. Often times someone just… using a pesticidewill use a broad spectrum pesticide where someone using integratedpest management will use a pesticide as a last resort and use onethat only targets the problem pests.
Pest management traps and glue boards are used primarily to catchand kill mice.
In Pest Control
Integrated pest control is an approach to careful usage of pestcontrol chemicals and techniques to discourage the development ofpest populations. It also forces us to implemen…t these techniquesin such a way that there will be negligible health risks. Manyreputed pest control companies following this approach.
