IPM Practitioner’s 2012 Directory of Least-Toxic
Pest Control Products contains more than 2000
products produced by more than 600 suppliers. The Directory
is unique because it is compiled by IPM technical experts,
includes specific product descriptions, and is organized in
concert with the IPM decision making process.
Thus, it is easy to find a biological control for an aphid,
a pheromone for a moth, or a bait for an ant. The Directory
gives contact information and access to suppliers of biocontrol
products, traps, pheromones, physical controls, tools, barriers,
and least-toxic chemical control products.
The Directory is a valuable asset for anyone trying to practice
IPM and reduce pesticide exposures. Listed products are useful
for structural pest control, greenhouse production, home gardening,
and organic farming.
