  2. What & Why • IPM is an agriculture pest control strategy where you use knowledge on the pests living place, what it does, and its history. • IPM helps control and terminate pest problems in a smart way using what you have learned about the pests.

  3. The First Step Understand what the customer wants you to do with the pest. Consult the owner of the property and see what they want done with the pest. Do they want it dead? Do they care if you use chemicals? (etc.)

  4. The Second Step Examine the pest and the problem Make sure you know which species are currently there. Check buildings, make sure you have the right identification, know characteristics of the pest.

  5. The Third Step Use short term actions to better control the pest If there’s a lot of the type of pest, try using insecticides first to get rid of some of the pests. Do small things that will let you do the big tactic more thoroughly.

  6. The Fourth Step Use long term actions to rid the pest Use the tactics to help resolve the pest issue. Prevent the pests from doing harm or coming back.

  7. The Fifth Step Write records Remember to keep track of the strategy you used to get rid of the pest. It might be helpful in the future! Remember a conclusion.

  8. The Last Step Consult the landowner again Tell the owner the process you used to rid the pest. Make sure the customer stays informed about what they can do to help control the pest in the future (if it comes back).

  9. The Six Tactics Chemical Control- There are special insecticide sprays you can use to manage pests. You can spray or lubricate where the pest is. Biological Control- Predation (bringing in predators to eat the prey) and parasitism (you bring in another organism that gets benefits from damaging the pest) Physical Control- Using barriers, traps, weeding, and getting rid of the pest using hands

  10. The Six Tactics • Cultural Control- Using sanitation, crop rotations, and covering the crops to get rid of the pest. • Regulatory Control- Take away things that make the pest regulatory (i.e. health, comfort, and recreation) • Exclusion- Place barriers and watch the pests closely.

  11. Bagworm • Thyridopteryx ephemeraeformis • The bagworm is native to Pennsylvania. Bagworms on Colorado Blue Spruce

  12. RecognizableTraits • The pests reside in cone shaped figures. The actual pest is shiny black with amber coloring on their underside. Male bagworms turn into moths that can fly around, while the women stay in the “grub” form.

  13. Life History of the Bagworm • Bagworms start out as eggs. They grow into larvae which look like moth larvae. They also go through pupae. Then, as adults, women stay in a grub like form while men grow into moths.

  14. Impact • Bagworms can eat both hardwood and softwood trees. They usually attack fir, hemlock, juniper, pine, and spruce. • Bagworms take away plant leaves, this causes leaf damage. Attacks usually go unnoticed because their bags look like pinecones.

  15. Getting Rid of Bagworms • You can just pick up the bag and burn it. • Attract birds. Use birdfeeders or make your tree desirable. • Use insecticides to spray on the pest to make sure they die away.
