California Dept. of Pesticide Regulation The best way to solve a pesticide-related problem often combines regulatory action and voluntary adoption of improved pest management methods. DPR has a legal mandate to encourage the use of environmentally sound pest management, including integrated pest management (IPM). Many DPR programs stress a least-toxic approach to pest management and promote risk reduction through information, encouragement, incentives, and community-based problem solving.
