Stop Pests in Housing is a program by our sister IPM Center in the Northeast.
Its website provides good information on how to stop common household pests, like the bald-faced hornet lurking here, using integrated pest management strategies. IPM practices focus on preventative measures and pest control methods that are safer for humans and the environment than many conventional pesticides. From bats to bedbugs, spiders to stinging pests, and fleas to flies, check out these Pest Solutions.
In our region, the Western IPM Center also provides a number of "Urban IPM" programs aimed at controlling mice in school and pests in public housing. Look for an overview of these programs in our upcoming newsletter.
