It must be i) part of the total crop production program, ii) economical, iii) understood that the pest control actions can result in undesirable effects such as water pollution and the destruction of the non-target species, and iv) in the broadest sense , pest management refers to all pests including weed, pathogens, insects, nematodes, and vertebrate animals.
