The City of Edmonds is committed to reducing pesticide use in its parks and has achieved a 60% reduction since 2008 by using Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach to park maintenance.
Using an IPM approach protects a systems’ natural balance, and keeps unnecessary chemicals out of the environment. This approach has enabled many areas within the Edmonds parks system to be managed and maintained as pesticide free.
Successful IPM both improves the look and health of our parks and reduces pesticide use. The primary keys to success using an IPM approach are:
Proper care to keep plants healthy and disease-resistant
Routine plant monitoring for early pest detection
Correct pest identification and diagnosis
Understanding pest life cycle and behaviors in order to target appropriate treatment
