Integrated Pest Management Programs

The Integrated Pest Management Program implements the City's Integrated Pest Management Policy (Pesticide Use Policy) and works with City Departments to reduce and eliminate pesticide use and develop alternative pest control techniques. The program also reaches out to the community to educate citizens on the least-toxic types of pest control.


The University of California Statewide Integrated Pest Management Project (UC IPM) develops and promotes the use of integrated, ecologically sound pest management programs in California. The UC IPM mission has remained consistent throughout: to reduce the pesticide load in the environment; to increase the predictability and thereby the effectiveness of pest control techniques to develop pest control programs that are economically, environmentally, and socially acceptable; to marshal agencies and disciplines into integrated pest management programs; and to increase utilization of natural pest controls.


CIPM is a National Science Foundation sponsored Industry/ University Cooperative Research Center. CIPM works to support and further Integrated Pest Management through the evaluation of emerging technologies, information management and dissemination, environmental stewardship, estimation of economic consequences, resistance management tools and systems, and integration of disciplinary expertise.



BIRC is a nonprofit organization offering over 25 years of insight, experience and leadership in the development and communication of least-toxic, environmentally sound, integrated pest management (IPM) methods and policies of urban and agricultural applications. BIRC aims to seek consensus between the pest control companies, resource professionals, environmentalists, and government agencies regarding urban and rural pesticide reduction strategies and least-toxic pest management.

This is the website for the California Department of Pesticide Regulation. The website contains links and information on pesticides, grants, laws and regulations, programs and services, and contact information.


San Francisco adopted an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) ordinance in October 1996, which commits the city to a pest management approach on its own property that minimizes the use of toxic chemicals and gets rid of pests by methods that pose a lower risk to public and environmental health.


This website provides educational information about integrated pest management for use by the general public and by San Francisco City staff. This website does not advocate the use of any specific integrated pest management strategy, but instead provides access to integrated pest management information and resources. This website is under development and will be periodically updated with new information.


Ecology Action is a non-profit organization designing and implementing waste reduction and pollution prevention programs both within Santa Cruz County and throughout the state of California. The focus of Ecology Action’s P2 Pollution Prevention Team’s work is on preventing non-point source pollution. Their goal is to avoid or eliminate non-point source pollution in the Monterey Bay Area and other regions where we are involved in P2! Programs.
