Maine Dept of Agriculture - Pests can be insects, weeds, fungi, mice and other animals, or microorganisms, like bacteria and viruses. Before you swat, stamp, or spray, know your enemy and, most importantly, know that it is an enemy, and not a beneficial or harmless plant or animal.
Integrated Pest Management - University of Maine Cooperative Extension
Instead of simply trying to eradicate a pest, an IPM approach considers all of the information and experience available, accounts for multiple objectives, and considers all available preventive and curative options. Based on that foundation, informed decisions are implemented to achieve optimum results. What those optimum results are will often vary with each user’s individual preferences. IPM can be used wherever pest damage occurs.
