A brief description of the IPM plan(s) :

Fanshawe follows the tenants of IPM, and do not use pesticides on campus. Our controls include mechanical (hoeing, cultivation, hand weeding, and use of plastic covers to sterilize contaminated bed areas). Additionally we select plant species for their pest and disease tolerance and remove and replace problematic species, For scale insect problems we use a pressure washer to remove or reduce their populations from the bark of problematic species. We have a program in place to protect our Ash species (from Emerald Ash Borer) by using a injected biological solution developed from the Neem tree (a species native to India). This solution kills the larvae of the beetle and this protects the tree.

Turf is not maintained by IPM and covers 39.86 acres of the college grounds
