Insect and Disease Management

What is Integrated Pest Management (IPM)?

Integrated Pest Management is a holistic approach to landscape health management. In past decades, the approach to dealing with problematic insects involved little more than spraying with insecticides.


With the current popularity of environmentally-friendly practices, the plant care profession has become more educated and methods of dealing with pests have become much more refined. The current approach to dealing with insect and disease issues involves looking at life-cycles, environmental conditions, co-factors and the natural world in general.


With IPM, spraying with pesticides is considered more of a last resort, as opposed to being the first step in dealing with the problem.

When you purchase Boston Hort's Diagnostic Services, we will recommend various options based on the concept of Integrated Pest Management. In other words, we will look at the whole picture and see what needs to be adjusted or changed in order to reduce insect and disease outbreaks.
