TIPWG to release new Standard Operating Procedure

The second TIPWG Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for 2020 has been released on the TIPWG website and addresses the issues of Infrastructure Pest Management (IPM) and the need to apply an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach – essentially IPM for IPM!

While none of what is required by the SOP can be considered ‘rocket science’, it is an essential aspect of ‘forestry housekeeping’ that can easily be overlooked or inappropriately applied. In a day and age where industry’s use of chemicals, in particular, pesticides are coming under more scrutiny, this is an area where well-applied IPM practices can drastically reduce pesticide reliance.
