About the IPM Symposium:
The 7th IPM Symposium attracted more than 630 research, education, government, industry and environmental and health professionals from 36 countries for three days of presentations, networking and organizational meetings on key pest management issues.

"Integrated Pest Management, or IPM, is a long-standing, science-based, decision-making process that identifies and reduces risks from pests and pest management related strategies. It coordinates the use of pest biology, environmental information, and available technology to prevent unacceptable levels of pest damage by the most economical means, while posing the least possible risk to people, property, resources, and the environment. IPM provides an effective strategy for managing pests in all arenas from developed residential and public areas to wild lands. IPM serves as an umbrella to provide an effective, all encompassing, low-risk approach to protect resources and people from pests." (IPM Roadmap, May 17, 2004)
