Submit Your IPM Plan Information


Integrated pest management (IPM) is a continuous system of controlling pests (weeds, diseases, insects or others) in which pests are identified, action thresholds are considered, all possible management options are evaluated and selected controls are implemented. Management options, which include biological, cultural, manual, mechanical and chemical methods, are used to prevent or remedy unacceptable pest activity or damage. Choice of options is based on effectiveness, environmental impact, site characteristics, worker/public health and safety, and economics. IPM takes advantage of all appropriate pest management options.

After submitting your IPM Plan information online you will receive a response containing information to be included in your IPM plan. A basic IPM plan will consist of this response along with the appropriate Grow Green fact sheets and any other documentation listed in the response. You may be required to include additional elements in your IPM plan based on site plan review.

This information must be distributed to the owner of the property and to any person or company who is given responsibility for on-site pest management, landscaping, or facility maintenance (i.e. homeowners, property managers, maintenance companies).

Per the restrictive covenant that will accompany the IPM plan, the owner of the property and their assignees are legally required to comply with the IPM plan.
