Many different insects infest shade trees and shrubs in the southeastern United States, but few require routine management in residential landscapes. The development of IPM programs for several key pests (e.g., scales, borers) in Florida will be described, and concepts such as “key plant - key pest”, “right plant - right place”, and using pest life cycles to appropriately select and time control measures will be emphasized.
