Integrated pest management (IPM) utilizes a combination of control methods in order to control pest populations in agricultural systems. Here, we construct a stage structured impulsive integrated pest management with added prey refuge. By considering the ability of pests to hide from management strategies, we establish properties for pest eradication and permanence of the proposed system. Simulations of eradicated and permanent solutions are also included in order to illustrate the behavior of pest and predator populations.
