Nursery, Greenhouse, and Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) Growers 

To learn more about my IPM Scouting and Consulting Services, please fill out the form below.  I will contact you promptly via email or phone.

 

I provide a variety of IPM services to fit your growing needs. Choose from an on-site regular scouting & consulting package, a team training & consulting package, or a one-time consultation to address a specific plant problem (either virtually or in-person). 

My custom IPM programs help clients reduce costs and exposure while improving efficacy. This is accomplished by properly identifying plant pests and problems that reduce crop quality and yield, understanding insect and disease life cycles, and providing effective management strategies that will be implemented at the proper time.

The successful use of this program leads to a reduction in use of harsh chemicals and run-off-related issues. It will increase worker safety, promote beneficial organisms, and improve environmental health.

IPM Scouting & Consulting Packages Include:

  • Visual inspection of plant materials.

  • Use of sticky cards, lures & traps, as appropriate.

  • Proper identification of insects, both beneficials and pests.

Staff Training - I will train you/your staff how to properly identify plant pests and collect accurate data from sticky cards, traps, and tap testing. This data is critical to the effectiveness of our consulting partnership.


Consulting (Virtual or In-Person) - We will establish weekly or bi-weekly regularly scheduled virtual meetings or conference calls to evaluate client-collected data and observations. I will provide specific pest management strategies, general crop advice, and scouting resources specific to your team and crop needs.
