 Habitat modification, which includes pest exclusion

  • Estimates for termite damage

  • Proper Storage practices
  • Removal of pest habitat, food sources, and breeding areas
  • Management of environmental factors, such as temperature, light humidity, atmosphere, and air circulation to prevent pest reproduction

 Pests may be controlled through a plan of action, which includes the judicious use of pesticides:

  • Mechanical or physical controls including but not limited to traps, light, or sound
  • Lures and repellants using non-synthetic or synthetic substances consistent with the National List.

A pesticide consistent with IPM Institute of North America's "Green Certification" program and [National Organic Program (NOP)or the Organic Material Review Institute (OMRI)] only if the other non-chemical steps are not effective or sufficient
