Title: Integrated Pest Management


1
Integrated Pest Management
Lesson 5.3
2
Theme Outline
  • Lesson 5.3
  • Effects of IPM on the Environment and Society
  • Benefits of IPM
  • Drawbacks of IPM

3
Academic Standards for Environment Ecology
  • Standard 4.5.10.C
  • Determine the effects of integrated pest
    management practices on society over time.
  • Analyze the risks to the environment and society
    associated with alternative practices used in
    integrated pest management.
  • Analyze the benefits to the environment and
    society associated with alternative practices
    used in integrated pest management.

4
Learning Objectives
  • Students will assess various levels of control
    within different integrated pest management
    practices, including increased immunity to
    pesticides, food safety, sterilization, nutrient
    management, and weed control.
  • Students will analyze the risks to the
    environment and society associated with
    alternative practices used in integrated pest
    management.
  • Students will analyze the benefits to the
    environment and society associated with
    alternative practices used in integrated pest
    management.

5
Effects of IPM on the Environment and Society
  • Benefits of IPM
  • Drawbacks of IPM

6
Benefits of IPM
  • Less pesticide residue on food.
  • The EPA considers pesticide residue on food one
    of the most serious environmental health concerns
    in terms of the risk of cancer.

7
Benefits of IPM
  • Less chance of pesticide resistance.
  • When pesticides are used over a long period of
    time, pests can develop a resistance (or
    immunity) making pesticides less ineffective.

8
Benefits of IPM
  • Less Damage to Non-target Organisms.
  • Some beneficial organisms are mistakenly effected
    or killed by pesticides meant to target other
    organisms.

9
Benefits of IPM
  • Lower costs to farmers.
  • Few pesticides used, fewer pesticides to buy.

10
Benefits of IPM
  • Preserves nutrients in the soil.
  • Planting one single crop year after year depletes
    the soil of vital nutrients.

11
Drawbacks of IPM
  • May alter local ecosystems.
  • Introducing predators, parasitoids, and pathogens
    changes the balance in an ecosystem.

12
Drawbacks of IPM
  • Can contaminate the environment.
  • IPM lessens the use of pesticides but does not
    eliminate them.

13
Drawbacks of IPM
  • Does not eliminate all pests.
  • What is the goal of IPM again?
  • Not eliminate but use forecasting and weather
    data to devise a plan to bring pest populations
    down to acceptable levels.

14
Drawbacks of IPM
  • May lose more crops.
  • Results occur more slowly initially.

15
Drawbacks of IPM
  • Can require intensive planning.
  • Considerations such as
  • Knowledge of pests biology, their lifecycle, and
    natural enemies
  • Knowledge of how IPM can be used to control pest
    populations
