Community IPM: Reducing risk across New York State CALS Impact Statement uri icon

abstract

  • The New York State Community Integrated Pest Management (NYS CIPM) Program at Cornell University is the only one of its kind in the country and addresses pest problems where people live, learn, work, and play—using methods that pose minimal risk to human health and the environment. We help the state’s 19 million residents find new alternative ways to manage the pests that damage our landscapes, contaminate our food and living spaces, and pose risks to human health.
