The Washington State Pest Management Resource Service (WSPRS) serves as a hub for research-based information about pest management practices, including both chemical and alternative control methodologies. We serve Washington State’s policy makers, agricultural producers, research and extension professionals and Extension Master Gardener volunteers by making relevant and accurate information widely available in a timely and accessible manner.
