The MoniTor® Rx Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Programme is designed to minimize landscape pesticide inputs. When needed, woody landscape plants are protected with products that are certified organic (OMRI) or based on naturally occurring materials. The original MoniTor® IPM Programme has a proven record of reducing pesticide use by 90%. MoniTor® Rx programmes emphasize plant health and regular monitoring for pest activity by a skilled pest management specialist. When pest management is necessary, naturally based materials and techniques are employed. This programme protects the environment, promotes landscape ecosystem health and can reduce anxieties regarding the toxicity and persistence of man-made pesticides.
