WHAT IS IPM?
Integrated Pest Managment (IPM) is an ecosystem-based strategy that focuses on long-term prevention of pests or their damage through a combination of techniques such as biological control, habitat manipulation, modification of cultural practices, and use of resistant varieties. Pesticides are used only after monitoring indicates they are needed according to established guidelines, and treatments are made with the goal of removing only the target organism. Pest control materials are selected and applied in a manner that minimizes risks to human health, beneficial and nontarget organisms, and the environment.
Every structure is unique and presents its own challenges. That's why a thorough inspection of the structure and surrounding areas to identify current areas of concern and infestation as well as conducive conditions is imperative. Consistent record keeping on the history of the structure and its surroundings, along with consistent personal communication with our customers provides the comfort and peace of mind you want in knowing your environment is pest free at all times!
