Welcome! This website is designed to help Washington State citizens adopt integrated pest management (IPM) for indoor and landscape pests. Our mission is to reduce adverse health and environmental impacts from pesticides in urban environments. Our goal is to be a clearinghouse for the many IPM resources available.
What's Here? Information on pests (insects, rodents, weeds, etc.), pesticides and IPM approaches to pest control. See our brochures about IPM for Schools and IPM for Households for more about this website, and to print and hand out as a resource. Pest Press can be a valuable resource for teachers and staff to help them keep pests out of school.
