  • Integrated Pest Management Plan

    Pests are populations of living organisms (animals, plants, or microorganisms) that damage property or interfere with the aesthetics or use of University facilities for human purposes.

    Integrated Pest Management (IPM) establishes a sustainable approach to managing pests by combining biological, cultural, physical, and chemical tools in a way that minimizes economic, health, and environmental risks.

    The University of Richmond has adopted an Integrated Pest Management Plan for the landscape and grounds the University manages. The plan outlines procedures to be followed to protect the health and safety of students, faculty, staff, and visitors from pest and pesticide hazards. The plan is designed to voluntarily comply with policies and regulations promulgated by the Department of Agriculture for public buildings and University Facilities.
