Natural Bug Reducers

Integrated Pest Management is a preventative, long term, low toxicity means of controlling pests.

According to the EPA, the Environmental Protection Agency's website: "Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. This information, in combination with available pest control methods, is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment."

It turns out chickens make an excellent contribution to the controlling of pests as naturally as possible! Bug lights are used too, and this farmer keeps 4 big toads around to help further reduce the insects at hand.
