Molly will discuss “20 Bugs Every Home Gardener Should Know” & Integrated Pest Management (IPM)

Ms. Keck works with AgriLife Research and Extension faculty, program specialists, county staff and local citizens to plan, conduct and evaluate educational activities, result demonstrations and applied research projects on urban and landscape IPM in the San Antonio metroplex and surrounding counties. She provides educational programs for youth in public school, private school, afterschool and other community programs. She plans and implements Community Wide Fire Ant Management Programs for Bexar County residents and works with pest management professionals, homeowners, master gardeners and other organizations to develop training programs on integrated pest management.

Integrated pest management (IPM), also known as integrated pest control (IPC).  IPM/IPC is abroad-based approach that integrates practices for economic control of pests. IPM aims to suppress pest populations below the economic injury level (EIL). The UN's Food and Agriculture Organization defines IPM as "the careful consideration of all available pest control techniques and subsequent integration of appropriate measures that discourage the development of pest populations and keep pesticides and other interventions to levels that are economically justified and reduce or minimize risks to human health and the environment. IPM emphasizes the growth of a healthy crop with the least possible disruption to the home gardener and encourages natural pest control mechanisms."
