Invasive insects cost the U.S. over $2.5 billion per year alone through lost crops, lawns, forests, and pastures.  Regardless of what part of the country you’re from, domestic and
invasive pests pose a threat to our agricultural and commercial sectors as well as our national defense.  This briefing will discuss how Areawide Integrated Pest Management (AIPM) can be deployed to save money and resources while managing pests across a range
of ecosystems.
