Cornell University works in partnership with the New York State Integrated Pest Management Program (IPM) to create sustainable methods to manage pests that minimize environmental, economic, and health risks to Cornell Campus.

Cornell scientists, teachers, students and staff work with IPM professionals in developing research, performing demonstrations, and educating the public to assure that IPM is the safest, most effective pest management solution possible.

IPM views the use of pesticides as a last resort. There are times, however, when pesticides are the only option. To learn more about what governs IPM’s pesticide use, we invite you to read Horticultural Use of Pesticides on the Cornell Campus.
