This working group holds webinars and develops online learning modules on Integrated Pest Management (IPM) topics related to pest management in the North Central region. Our audience is Extension Master Gardeners, and garden center employees, anyone interested in controlling pests on home landscapes. Our purpose is to raise awareness, knowledge, and use of IPM in home landscapes.
 

North Central Integrated Pest Management Center (NCIPMC) Mission and Goals

Our mission is to improve health, environment, and economic benefits by providing leadership and cooperating with our partners to facilitate the development and adoption of IPM solutions, based in the North Central region.

We achieve our mission by contributing to outcomes in three ways:

1. Improve economic benefits of adopting IPM practices;

2. Reduce potential risks to human health; and

3. Reduce potential risks to the environment, as they relate to pests and management strategies.
