Management tactics on this page are those discussed in the Pest Notes series, published by the University of California Statewide Integrated Pest Management Program (UCIPM). Information on this page alone is not sufficient for making pest management decisions. For detailed management recommendations, see the associated UCIPM Pest Note. Each tactic is also linked back to the appropriate Pest Note section.

The risk posed by any pesticide product is determine

d both by toxicity and level of exposure. Information presented on these pages is not intended to constitute a full risk assessment. Information is provided here only on active ingredients, not on inert ingredients. The active ingredient is generally-but not always-considered to be the most hazardous ingredient of a pesticide preparation.
