  8. IPM- PestManagement Options Educate to Detect: First Detector Training in Florida Your Name Here County & title

  9. Pest Management Approach • Scouting • Diagnosis • Thresholds • Management Utilizing Borer Traps as an Alternative Pest Control Method

  10. Management using the IPM Pyramid INCREASE • Sustainability • Biodiversity • REDUCE RISK • Disease Epidemic • Environmental Hazards • Health Hazards • REDUCE COST Chemical Biological Control Mechanical & Physical Biologically Based IPM Technologies

  11. Toxicity Hard Chemical: direct toxins, kill on contact, long residual, broad-spectrum – carbamates, organophosphates Low Impact Chemical: baits, soaps, oils Biochemical: hormones, enzymes, pheromones, insect growth regulators (IGRs) Microbial: products originate from bacteria, fungi, nematode, protozoa & virus Chemical Natural and Introduced:Predators, parasites, nematodes Biological Exclusion, physical removal: Insects - traps, barriers, wash Weeds - mulch, till, hoe, pull Diseases - prune Physical - Mechanical Plant selection for site & pest resistance, sanitation, watering/pruning/fertilizing, diversity Cultural Jane Morse- UF/IFAS Pinellas Co Extension

  12. Use IPM to minimize pests and damage • Once you have your new exotic (weed, insect, disease, snail…) identified, people in your area will want to begin management tactics • These can be recommendations from anywhere in the IPM pyramid • Often scientists develop a multi tactic approach like the TAME Melaleuca program

  13. TAME Melaleuca Mechanical Biological Chemical http://tame.ifas.ufl.edu Multi tactic example - Melaleuca

  14. Manually cutting or uprooting the plants, this can be accomplished with equipment or done by hand! Mechanical Control http://tame.ifas.ufl.edu/html/management/mechanical.htm

  15. Biological Control • Two biological agents released and established • melaleuca weevil • melaleuca psyllid • The melaleuca bud-gall fly, has been released but has not established • The stem-gall fly is still being studied for possible future release http://tame.ifas.ufl.edu/html/management/biological.htm

  16. Several methods of chemical control Stump treat Hack-and-squirt Arial application Stump treatment slideshow Hack-and-squirt slideshow Chemical Control http://tame.ifas.ufl.edu/html/management/herbicide.htm

  17. Pesticide Information Office (PIO) • Be sure you know about pesticide rules and licensing before recommending any chemical control options • This includes herbicides for the management of aquatic and terrestrial plants • EDIS, your local County Extension Office and the PIO can answer all of your pesticide questions http://pested.ifas.ufl.edu/
