The Santa Barbara Airport has implemented an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program which utilizes ArcView 3.3 GIS technology for tracking, management and analysis. Various methods of pest control are used including pesticide application and environmentally sensitive methods such as weed removal, mulching and trapping. Comparative analysis is performed to report and modify IPM techniques. A form and map are used to field record method, area and associated data. These data are recorded in an MS Access database, and a polygon theme is generated for each application area to evaluate the efficiency of these methods. Overlapping polygons illustrate "hotspots" to avoid excessive application of chemical treatments, and the buffers are used for wind consideration and proximity to buildings and water bodies. The SQL feature is utilized to join the Access database to ArcView 3.3. Staff training enables system management directly through ArcView, facilitating an impressive proactive and comprehensive IPM program.
