Integrated pest management (IPM) is an environmentally and economically sustainable method of managing pests based on applying pesticides only when pest populations surpass a point where expected resource loss exceeds control costs. Site-speciŽc pest management extends IPM principles by determining the spatial and temporal distribution of pest species and optimizes agricultural inputs by spatially adjusting location and/or application rate based on varying conditions within a Želd. The green peach aphid, Myzus persicae (Sulzer), is a candidate for site-speciŽc.
