The Board will hear a request from Marin County Parks to accept the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Program’s 2015 annual report. Parks staff plans to continue its downward trend on herbicide use and ramp up non-chemical treatments of invasive plants at parks and other County facilities. Alternative pest control methods will be emphasized in the coming years, including biological control with owls and insects, cultural control with changed work practices, and mechanical and physical control with mulches, screen barriers, and steam sterilization. Staff recommends that the Board accept the report and approve the Recommended Allowed Products List for 2016.
The Board accepted the annual report and products list with modifications.
