Please note that the term "pest" applies to animals, insects and weeds.
The City’s Integrated Pest Management Plan (IPMP) provides management guidelines that:
- Implement the mandates of the Colorado Noxious Weed Act by creating a plan for the control of noxious weeds using integrated control methods.
- Adhere to City Code.
- Consider the environmental, economic, and social impacts of different control methods as related to our Sustainability Plan.
- Protect visitor and applicator safety, water quality, non-target vegetation, federally protected endangered or threatened species, and local species of concern.
- Reduce the spread of pests from City of Longmont properties to adjacent or downstream/downwind properties.
The City reviews the IPMP annually to consider new technology and methods for controlling pests.
