Pest Management

Unit Purpose:

  • Prevent insect infestation
  • Eliminate rodents indoors and permanently reduce outdoor rodent populations
  • Treat infested areas

UCI has developed an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) plan to guide the use of environmentally sound pest management strategies and least-toxic control methods to protect the health and safety of the campus community and environment. IPM at UCI is defined as managing indoor and outdoor pests (plants, fungi, insects, and/or animals) to protect human health and the surrounding environment and to improve economic returns with the least risk to humans and the environment.
