Integrated Pest Management
This term describes the simultaneous use (ITP) of a bunch of different methods to control overflooding specimens of a given insect species in a limited area. This action may include at the same time use of chemical compounds, methods of sterile male technique, and/or setting free cultivated aggressive insects such as tephritid flies (true fruit flies), wasps, ants, and/or termites, etc., depending on the targeted invaders.
