Technical Guides

--Technical guidance documents for the DoD pest management community

TGs (formerly Technical Information Memoranda or TIMs) are not policy documents; rather, they provide technical guidance for the use of the DoD pest management community and others. Accordingly, TGs should not be construed or referenced as policy. DoD pest management policies may be found in DoD Instruction 4150.7, "DoD Pest Management Program."
