Integrated Vector Management

Integrated Vector Management (IVM) is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to vector management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. The District's IVM program uses current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of vectors and their interaction with the environment. This information, in combination with available vector control methods, is used to manage vector nuisance and public health threats by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment.

Butte County Mosquito and Vector Control District's IVM includes vector surveillance, source reduction and/or elimination, public education, biological control, and chemical control.
