Join Our Pest Patrol, produced by the Pennsylvania IPM Program, is a fun, educational resource for Pennsylvania teachers of students in grades 3-4. The workbook addresses the Academic Standards in environment and ecology, section 4.5.4, “Integrated Pest Management.”
Integrated pest management, or IPM, is a kid-safe, economical and scientific approach to managing pests. IPM integrates knowledge of pest identity and biology with pest monitoring so that action, if needed, can be taken at just the right time. In addition, IPM uses a combination of management tactics that are more likely to be safe and effective.
