What are pesticides?
A pesticide is any substance intended for preventing, destroying, repelling, or mitigating any pest. This includes surface sanitizers and disinfectants, insecticides, and herbicides.

What is SPM?
Sustainable Pest Management (SPM) is a holistic, whole-system approach applicable in agricultural and other managed ecosystems and urban and rural communities that builds on the concept of integrated pest management (IPM) to include the broader context of the three sustainability pillars: Human Health & Social Equality, Environmental Protections, and Economic Vitality.

What is IPM?
Integrated pest management, or IPM, is a safer, more sustainable strategy you can use daily. IPM focuses on various pest prevention and non-toxic or least-toxic pest management techniques to solve pest problems effectively. IPM strategies use practices that exclude pests so they can’t cause problems and use pesticides only as a last resort. Using integrated pest management practices makes it possible to manage pests effectively and sustainably at your center while protecting staff, children, and the environment.?
