PA IPM's Web Page Gets a New Look
UNIVERSITY PARK, PA Trying to decide what to do about those six-legged creatures occupying your home, school, field or greenhouse? Find out the answer by visiting the Pennsylvania IPM Program's newly revamped Web site.
The Web site, locate at http://paipm.cas.psu.edu, is more organized and easier to navigate with information about IPM divided into new categories tailored toward different audiences, says PA IPM's Web Site Administrator Kristine Kuhn. "From the redesigned home page, viewers have the option of choosing from categories such as agricultural IPM, school IPM, green industry, community IPM, and pesticide alternatives," says Kuhn. Each of the new categories includes a "Quick Links" box that contains links to additional resources.
Other new features on the Web site include an IPM for kids section, resources in Spanish, a find an expert section and national IPM news. Popular features such as the "Problem Solver", IPM articles and newsletters and an interactive database have been made more easily accessible.
The Pennsylvania IPM program is a collaboration between the Pennsylvania State University and the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture aimed at promoting integrated pest management in both agricultural and nonagricultural situations. Integrated pest management, or IPM, aims to manage pests such as insects, diseases, weeds and animals by combining physical, biological and chemical tactics that are safe, profitable and environmentally compatible.
