The California Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) has announced the winners of the 2014 Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Innovator Award, the department’s highest honor. The awards go to three organizations for their work in finding innovative ways to solve pest problems while reducing the use of chemical pesticides.
The awards were presented at a ceremony on Thursday, March 19, at 1:30 p.m., at the California Environmental Protection Agency headquarters at 1001 I St. in Sacramento.
DPR encourages Californians to tackle pests in a manner that reduces the risks associated with pesticide use. The IPM approach employs monitoring, record keeping and other non-chemical means to help prevent and treat pest problems.
