Touch-Screen Pest Management Kiosks


UC IPM kiosk helps solve pest management problems

The University of California Statewide IPM Program has developed a portable, touch-screen computer kiosk program to help consumers solve pest problems, protect the environment, and prevent runoff from residential landscapes.

The IPM Kiosks contain information in English (PDF) and Spanish (PDF) on over 60 common home and garden pests, including pest identification and management, alternatives to pesticides and least toxic pest control, as well as safe use and disposal of pesticides. The kiosk also has tips related to proper watering, fertilizing, and avoiding problems associated with garden chemicals. Kiosk users can look up a pest by category and name, or diagnose a problem on plants. Users can watch videos, print and take home information, as well as locate resources for finding additional pest management help in their county.

Kiosks are placed throughout California as part of UC Master Gardener outreach events and in nurseries, libraries, county fairs, garden shows and expos, and plant clinics. To borrow one of our 16 kiosk units for your retail garden center, library, or government center, contact your local UC Master Gardener or UC Cooperative Extension office. For more information about the kiosks, contact Anne Schellman at UC IPM.
