UC Irvine (UCI) has developed an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) plan to guide the use of environmentally sound pest management strategies and least-toxic control methods to protect the health and safety of the campus community and environment.  IPM at UCI is defined as managing indoor and outdoor pests (plants, fungi, insects and/or animals) to protect human health and the surrounding environment and to improve economic returns with the least risk to humans and the environment.
