Integrated Pest Management (IPM)

The California Healthy Housing Coalitions strongly encourages the use of IPM as a safer and more effective approach to pest management, particularly in multifamily housing.  IPM has proven to be an effective, long-term solution to pest problems while reducing exposure to pesticides.  The three videos below make the case for landlords and property managers to adopt an IPM approach at their properties by describing what IPM is, what its benefits are, and how to transition a property to IPM.  Additional resources are available below.
