INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an eco-friendly strategy that addresses the underlying reasons behind pest problems. An IPM approach is more effective than conventional methods because it addresses the root cause of the infestation.

IPM is based on the scientific knowledge of the life cycles of pests, their interaction with the environment and their habits. Methods include removing pests’ food source, blocking their entry into an area or building, using beneficial organisms, and the judicious use of pesticides. This promotes human health and safety, minimizes adverse environmental impact while being cost-effective.

Our IPM program consists of:

IDENTIFICATION & MONITORING OF PESTS
Accurate pest identification is crucial, since pest behavior, harborage areas and food sources vary greatly. Monitoring enables us to assess the level of infestation and select the most efficient method of control available.
DETERMINATION OF PLAN OF ACTION
The plan of action is determined by type of facility, occupant sensitivity, and location of infestation. Conducive conditions also play a large part in devising a plan of action, as well as sanitation, maintenance procedures, and pest entry levels.
PREVENTIVE & CURATIVE ACTION
A successful IPM program utilizes several of the following methods: structural repair, proper maintenance, biological control, environmental control, sanitation, precise and targeted application and judicious use of pesticides
