     Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a pest management system designed to provide long-term management of pests,instead of  temporarily eradicating  them. It is the coordinated use of pest and environmental information with available pest control methods to prevent unacceptable levels of pest damage   by the most economical means with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment. The  main goal of IPM is to manage pests and the environment so as to balance costs, benefits, public health, and  environmental quality. IPM systems use all available technical information on the pest and its interactions with  the environment.

     IPM, is an ecological approach to suppressing pest populations in which   all available necessary  techniques are utilized in a unified program, so that  pests are kept at acceptable levels in effective,  economical and environmentally friendly ways. Because pest problems are often symptomatic of ecological   imbalances, the goal is to attempt to plan and manage ecosystems to prevent organisms from becoming  pests.
