The information presented on these pages was developed to provide the basic core concepts of IPM. The next step will be to learn about managing your important pests. The internet contains many sites that have information on IPM systems. Examine sites which share the same pest problem or are in your geographical area. Most sites that are produced by your Land Grant Universities will have a site coordinator and linked email address for you to contact. These are excellent sites with resources tailored for local pest problems. The National IPM Network (NIPMN) site provides links to sites of each of the four US based Regional IPM Centers. The regional sites contain links to State extension web sites. The NIPMN site is a great place to start your search for pertinent IPM information.
