When and where are pesticides used?

Pesticides are used in the context of an integrated program of controls (Integrated Pest Management). Integrated pest management favors nonchemical controls, such as physical, mechanical, and biological, over chemical. When pests cannot be controlled by alternative methods, chemical pesticides may be needed for parkland and facilities.
