The best approach is to use an Integrated Pest Management program, where cultural, physical, chemical and biological tools work together to sustain a healthy environment.

Cultural control involves plant selection, site selection, proper planting and keeping your plants healthy.
Physical control includes barriers, traps and lures or physical removal to prevent or reduce pest problems.
Biological control brings in proper beneficial insects or organisms to fight the pests.

For optimum pest control results, it is best to use a combination of these. A good fertility program will also help by increasing plants' vitality, making them less susceptible to insect pests, weeds and diseases. Use traps to capture and monitor pests, natural insecticides for knock down of large populations of insects, and beneficial insects and organisms to combat developing stages.

Locate your problem insect from the list below or you can use our search feature at the top of the page. Searching can be done by insect type, for instance "beetle" and then finding information to control the type you have on that page or a link within it.
