IPM Fact Sheets

Use these IPM fact sheets from the Green Gardening program in the field and to help explain to your clients the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach you use on their landscapes, plus learn about how IPM can benefit your health, business, and clients.

Each sheet provides the essential facts on an important Northwest pest or disease: identification, life cycle, monitoring, damage threshold, and treatments.

Use, print or download these fact sheets, and feel free to hand them out to clients.

For an introduction to IPM for your clients, see the Natural Pest, Weed and Disease Control guide (pdf), or contact the Garden Hotline at (206) 633-0224 or for free copies to distribute to your clients.

All documents are in PDF format.
