Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Resources for the Green Industry


Correctly identifying the pest is the first step in IPM problem-solving. Our pocket-sized scouting guides and their related web pages feature common diseases, insect pests and beneficial species. Those for the green industry include guides for:

  •     IPM Scouting in herbaceous perennials
  •     IPM Scouting in woody landscape plants
  •     Identifying weeds in nurseries and landscapes
  •     Identifying natural enemies that offer you biological control.




Michigan’s green industry encompasses nursery plant production, landscaping and lawn care, athletic field and golf course turf management, and more.
