Advantages of Integrated Pest Management

Lower cost intervention

Traditionally, the use of pesticides to control pest invasion would account for lots of costs. The application of IPM would lessen the financial burden. Moreover, different techniques involved in IPM are more sustainable with long-lasting benefits.


Benefits to the environment

Use of the pesticides is often linked with the degradation of the environment. IPM is an eco-friendly approach and the effects on the environment are always considered before the application of any interventions.


Minimizes residue hazards of pesticides

It is obvious that in an IPM schedule, the use of pesticides will be considerably reduced, hence the pesticide residue hazards will also get automatically minimized.



This model discourages the use of chemicals and thus creates fewer cases of anti-resistance. Pesticides are used only when the other alternatives are not satisfying.
