1 Integrated Pest Management
Understanding IPM

2 Warm Up What do all these have in common?

3 Essential Question What is integrated pest management?

4 I P M Definition: pest management strategy that uses a combination of best management practices (BMP) to reduce pest damage with the least disruption to the environment. Why? Over time pests become resistant. IPM is able to adapt over time


6 IPM To keep pest populations below the economic or aesthetic injury level the point at which plant losses due to the pests are equal to the cost of control. Provide: protection against hazards to humans, domestic animals, plants and the environment.


8 IPM Ecologically based pest control strategy Includes natural factors
Climate, Natural enemies of pests

9 IPM Phase 1 Involves pest identification, monitoring, and action thresholds.

10 Action Threshold The predetermined level at which pest control is needed. ET= Action Threshold Based on $!!

11 IPM Phase 2 Evaluate all possible control methods
If action threshold is met, try out what works until you fix the problem!

12 IPM Option 1: Biological
Ladybird larvae eating wooly apple aphids

13 IPM Option 2: Chemical

14 IPM Option 3: Mechanical



17 IPM use BMPs Best Management Practices (BMP)
practices that combine scientific research with practical knowledge to optimize yields and increase crop quality while maintaining environmental integrity.

18 BMP Help protect sensitive environmental areas.
Examples Currently Used: Management of surface/subsurface run off Erosion control b. Cultural control of pests c. Soil testing d. Timing and placement of fertilizers e. Controlled release fertilizers f. Irrigation management g. Biological control of pests h. Pesticide selection i. Correct pesticide use

19 Basic Elements IPM A. People—system devisers and pest managers
B. Knowledge and information needed to devise the system and make sound decisions C. Program for monitoring the ecosystem elements D. Pest densities at which control methods are put into action E. Techniques used to manipulate pest populations F. Agents and materials G. Scouting: monitor plants regularly to determine current levels of pest activity

23 Integrated Pest Management
Determining Types of Pesticides

24 Warm Up Which would you eat?

25 Essential Question What are the major classifications of pesticides?

26 What are the major classifications of pesticides?
Pesticides are the materials used to control pests. Pests are anything that causes injury or loss to a plant. natural or man-made. now often done only when absolutely necessary. must be done safely to reduce potential injury to people and the environment.

27 Pests Cause Damage! Damage Plant Parts Compete for space and nutrients
Weeds Reduced quality of harvested product Contamination Decreased production crop

28 What are the major classifications of pesticides?
Insecticides are used to control insects, which are a group of animals with an exoskeleton and three body parts. Killed by body contact, by swallowing, or through the respiratory system.

29 What are the major classifications of pesticides?
Miticides are used to control mites and ticks. They are usually killed by coming in contact with the chemical.

30 What are the major classifications of pesticides?
Fungicides are used to control fungal disease. Prevent a plant from becoming infected. Applied before the disease is present.

31 What are the major classifications of pesticides?
Herbicides are used to kill unwanted plants. Rodenticides kill rodents, such as rats and mice. Usually applied as bait. Eating the chemical poisons the rodents.

32 What are the major classifications of pesticides?
Nematocides kill nematodes, which are tiny hair-like roundworms that feed on the roots of plants. Usually applied in the form of a fumigant A substance that produces a smoke, vapor, or gas when applied.

33 What are the major classifications of pesticides?
Molluscicides are used to kill slugs and snails. Applied as bait, which attracts the slugs and snails and poisons them.

34 Herbicides Herbicides are classified by
selectivity contact versus translocation timing mode of action. Herbicides are classified as being selective or nonselective. Selective herbicides act on certain plant species and not others. Nonselective herbicides kill all vegetation.

35 What are the major classifications of herbicides?
Herbicides may act on contact with plants or be translocated in the plant. Contact herbicides kill the parts of a plant to which it is applied. Translocated or systemic herbicides are absorbed by the roots or other plant parts and moved throughout the plant by vascular tissues.

36 What are the major types of herbicides?
Growth Regulators: kill weeds by altering growth or metabolic processes. Soil sterilant: a compound that prevents the growth of plants in the soil. most commonly used along ditch banks and fence rows.

37 What are the major classifications of herbicides?
Timing - stage of the crop or weed development. Preplanting applications are made before the crop is planted to control annual weeds. Preemergence applications are made before the crop or weeds emerge. Postemergence applications are completed after the crop or weeds have emerged.

38 What are the major classifications of herbicides?
Mode of action refers to how herbicides kill weeds. The mode of action- the effect on metabolic processes or enzyme systems that result in a lethal or toxic action in the plant. Herbicides may have a single mode of action or a multiple mode of action.

39 What are the major classifications of insecticides?
Insecticides are classified by how they enter an insect’s body. Three general groups contact, stomach, and respiratory. Contact insecticide is absorbed through the skin or exterior of an insect. The chemical must be applied directly on the insect and is normally used with sucking insects.

40 What are the major classifications of insecticides?
Stomach insecticide is effective when eaten. Applied to the plant parts, which are eaten by the insect. Most effective on chewing insects. Respiratory insecticide is an insecticide that enters the respiratory system of the insect. It is commonly called a fumigant. Used in enclosed places.

41 Vocabulary Non-selective herbicide Pest Pesticide
Contact herbicide Contact insecticide Fumigant Fungicides Growth regulators Herbicides Insecticides Insect Miticides Molluscicides Nematocides Nematodes Non-selective herbicide Pest Pesticide Respiratory insecticide Rodenticides Selective herbicide Soil sterilant Stomach insecticide

43 Integrated Pest Management
Using Pesticides Safely

44 Warm Up What is this? What do we use it for? Where do you find this?

45 Essential Question What are the 4 types of exposure to pesticides?

46 Classification of Pesticides
Toxicity: degree of poison in a material Amount of active ingredient and chemical nature determines toxicity Classified into 2 categories General Use Restricted Use

47 Measuring Toxicity (oral and dermal)
LD50+ LD= Lethal Dose - amount necessary to case death 50= 50% of test animals are killed at that dose Lower the LD50+ the more poisonous the chemical

48 Measuring Toxicity (inhalation)
LC50+ LC= Lethal Concentration Measured in milligrams per liter Lower the LC50+ the more dangerous the chemical

49 General Use Pesticides
Widely used Just follow the label Less harmful to the environment No special training required for use

50 Restricted Use Pesticides
More toxic than General Use High risk to humans and environment Must have training to use the poison

51 Types of Pesticide Exposure
Oral Exposure: Through the mouth or digestive system Wash hands to avoid oral exposure

52 Types of Exposure Dermal Exposure: Through the skin
Severity depends on: Toxicity, Absorption rate, Size of exposure area, Length of contact time

53 Types of Exposure Inhalation Exposure: Through nose and respiratory systems Breathing in vapors, sprays, or dust

54 Types of Exposure Eye Exposure: Through the eye Very sensitive
Wear eye protection!

55 Be Creative! Draw on your own:
Eye Exposure: Eyes are VERY sensitive! Wear protective eyewear ! Be Creative! Draw on your own: An advertisement explaining the different exposures and the dangers of pesticide exposure. Individual assignment on a separate piece of paper. Please turn in when finished Oral Exposure: Through the mouth. Wash your hands after handling pesticides

56 Safety Procedures Pesticides are helpful but can be pollutants
Must follow simple safety practices Passed Worker Protection Standard Law that provides a set of rules to help prevent pesticide related injuries

57 Simple Safety Procedures
Only used approved pesticides Know the pesticide Applicator must be informed about the chemical by reading labels Use pesticide with low toxicity Should only perform its job, not too strong Use pesticides only when needed When pests need to be controlled!

58 Simple Safety Procedures
Do not contaminate resources Never dumped into stream etc. Wear protective clothing Rubber gloves, respirators etc Proper Disposal Rinse and send to proper waste facility

59 Simple Safety Procedures
8. Apply in good weather Wind and rain can carry pesticides 9. Use the right equipment Control spray levels, and keep equipment clean and in working condition 10. Know emergency procedures What will happen in case of an accident?

60 Vocabulary Applicator Dermal exposure Eye exposure
General-use pesticides Inhalation exposure LC50 LD50 Lethal dose Oral exposure Restricted-use pesticides Toxicity Worker Protection Standard (WPS)

61 Activities Review Quiz 3

62 Integrated Pest Management
Understanding Pesticide Labels

63 Warm Up What information can you gather from this yard label?

64 Essential Question List information you find on a pesticide label?

65 Labels Provide info on active ingredient
Active ingredient is what kills the pest Steps to understanding your labels Read (and reread) the label Before handling the product Understand the label May require special training Follow label directions Criminal and Civil charges could result from misuse

66 Label Break Down Has 2 sides
Front side contains the following information Use Classification General or Restricted Trade Brand Name Formulation Ingredients Common Name

67 Label Break Down 5.Ingredients Inert : inactive but needed for safety 6. Net Contents Lbs, quarts, gallons, etc 7. Signal Words DANGER, WARNING, CAUTION (based on toxicity level

68 Label Break Down 8. Precautionary Statements
First Aide, Potential hazards, Flammability 9. Establishment Number Where the product was made EPA Registration number Name and Address of manufacturer

69 Label Break Down Back label contains: Hazardous materials Warnings
Directions for use 1. sites which can be treated with the pesticide 2. target pest(s) the product will control 3. amount of chemical to use per acre 4. type of equipment and application methods that can be used 5. proper mixing procedures 6. when the pesticides should be applied 7. reentry limitations 8. guidelines for storage and disposal 9. limitations on its use Limitation guidelines

70 Reading a Label Activity
Answer the Following Questions about the label: Is it Restricted or General Use? Define answer What signal word is used? What does this tell you about toxicity levels? What type of pesticide is this? (powder, granular) What % of the ingredients are inert? What % are active? Who makes this product? Where are they located? What is the EPA number of this product? What precautions/warnings are given concerning the product? What is the name of the product? What is the Net contents/weight of the product? What is the active ingredient?


72 PAY CLOSE ATTENTION As an applicator (user of the pesticide) you should pay special attention to : the signal words precautionary statements directions.

73 When do you read the label?
Before buying the pesticide Before mixing the pesticide Before applying the pesticide Before storing the pesticide Before disposing of your pesticide

74 Vocabulary Active ingredient Common name Formulation
General-use pesticide Inert Restricted-use pesticide Signal words Toxicity Trade (brand) name

75 Activities Review Quiz 4

76 Integrated Pest Management
Applying Pesticides

77 Warm Up What safety precautions are being taken while applying these pesticides? Why do you think these precautions are being taken?

78 Essential Question What are the types of application areas?

79 Time of Application Definition: when pesticides are applied relative to the stage of growth of the crop Three Types Preplant Preemergence Postemergence

80 Applications Preplant Application Preemergence Application
Before the crop is the planted Seedbed is prepared then pesticide is applied Preemergence Application Before the crop has emerged Broken through the soil Applied during planting or shortly after Postemergence Application Applied after crops are growing and pests are ID-ed

81 Area of Application Definition: the extent of coverage of a crop or turf. Areas: Band Application Broadcast Application Directed Application Spot Application

82 Areas Defined Band Application: treating narrow strips with pesticides, inches wide, places pesticides close to plants Broadcast Application: treating an entire area, no area is left untouched by pesticides Directed Application: treating only selected plants, apply where pests are present, saves $ Spot Application: treating only certain areas within a field or pasture, target high concentrations of pests, protects environment

83 Represent Application Areas
Follow your worksheet. On a separate piece of paper you can define the different areas of application This will help you on your test. Turn in when finished Don’t forget your name!

84 Calibrating Pesticides
Helps maximize performance! Definition: setting equipment to meter the exact amount of herbicide needed. Purpose: insure that the sprayer applies the correct amount of pesticide uniformly over a given area

85 Variables that Effect Calibration
Nozzle Flow Rate: Changes the size of the nozzle tip and nozzle pressure Larger tip – larger flow rate To double flow rate, pressure must increase 4x Ground Speed: rate of travel across the ground Inversely related to spray application rate Doubling ground speed decreases application by 1/2 Spray width per nozzle

86 Vocabulary Area of application Band application Broadcast application
Calibration Directed application Economic threshold Emerged Ground speed Injury threshold Postemergence applications Preemergence applications Preplant applications Spot application Time of application Vocabulary

87 Activities Review Quiz 5

88 Integrated Pest Management
Managing Environmental Impact of Pesticides

89 Warm Up Projected Pesticide Run Off
Where is the highest level of run off? Why is this a major environmental problem?

90 Essential Question What are the main environmental concerns involved with pesticide use?

91 Pesticides A major concern Problem Areas Nontarget Areas Biodegrading

92 Non target Areas Area where the pesticide was not intended
A result of drift movement of a pesticide through the air Surface Run off Leaching

93 Biodegrading Ability to be decomposed by biological action
Results in accumulation in groundwater, plants or animals (tissues) Collect Pesticides with these characteristics should be avoided if possible

94 Disposal Most destructive Easiest to solve!
Applicator’s responsibility to make sure pesticides are properly disposed of Where do we find this information!?

95 Pesticide Persistence
Amount of time it takes for a pesticide to biodegrade or break down More persistent a pesticide= more likely to enter groundwater Persistence Classifications Rapid Accumulative Persistent

96 Rapid Decomposers Break down quickly
Remain in target area for short time Little adverse effect on environment When used properly Should be first option to use as a pesticide

97 Accumulative Pesticides
Build up in the bodies of Animals, Humans Potentially can build to a dangerous level Harms the organism Harms the consumer of that organism

98 Persistent Pesticides
Break down slowly Desirable for long term pest management Do not react to light, heat, or oxygen Slightly water-soluble Do not always accumulate In organisms

99 Disposal Quick and proper disposal is a MUST
Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) for the management of hazardous toxic materials and their containers illegal to store or dispose of pesticides in ways that would likely harm humans or the environment

100 Disposal Procedures Based on amounts of pesticides needing to be disposed Small amounts: like those found in houses, buried in state-approved landfills Large amounts: considered hazardous waste, disposed by licensed facilities

101 Triple Rinse Method Recommended procedure as follows
1. Drain the container into the spray tank. Hold container upside down for30 seconds. 2. Add water until the container is about ¼ full then close 3. Shake or roll the container to rinse all interior areas; then drain the remaining liquid 4. Repeat the rinse and drain procedure two more times. 5. Puncture plastic or metal triple-rinsed containers to prevent reuse. 6. Crush the container to reduce volume.

102 Activities Review Quiz 6 On the back of your review quiz:
