Welcome to Home and Garden IPM from Cooperative Extension


Pest Identification and Management for people in Maine
The intent of these pages is to help people in Maine identify pests (and other curious critters) that are found in and around the home and garden, and to provide information on how to control them, if necessary.

Information you can use, research you can trust.
University of Maine Cooperative Extension is your doorway to University of Maine expertise. We put university research to work—in homes, businesses, and communities—in every corner of Maine.
