dc.description.abstractModern pest control has relied primarily on chemicals to rid structures of invaders. Urban Integrated Pest Management is an environmentally conscious philosophy of managing pest populations by combining treatment measures in an attempt to manage pests in a lasting manner. The concept of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) for subterranean termites has been discussed, under various guises, in the entomological literature for at least 80 years. In 2001, a program was initiated on the University of Georgia campus to manage subterranean termites following the philosophy of IPM. This is the first attempt since 1934 to quantify subterranean termite infestation entry points and treatment success toward identifying items relevant to developing an IPM program for termites.
