Correct Answer - Option 4 : Integrated Pest Management Programme

The correct answer is Integrated Pest Management Programme.

  • 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. 
  • An example of this would be insect pheromones used together with sticky traps.
  • Pheromones are the chemicals produced by insects to attract their mates, and so these substances are not toxic

Steps involved in IPM are:

Step 1: Inspection. The cornerstone of an effective IPM program is a schedule of regular inspections. 
Step 2: Preventive Action. 
Step 3: Identification. 
Step 4: Analysis.
Step 5: Treatment Selection. 
Step 6: Monitoring.
Step 7: Documentation.
