Homeowner IPM Pilot

Organization(s) New Hampshire Dept. of Environmental Services
Project Description DES was recently awarded a grant with the objective to educate the public on the dangers of pesticide use and encourage homeowners to purchase less toxic alternatives and use more environmentally sound methods of caring for their home, garden, and lawn. The pilot project will partner with garden centers, hardware stores, planning commissions, and municipalities to promote integrated pest management (IPM) methods. The desired goal is to decrease the amount of pesticides being purchased, used, and disposed of by homeowners.
