Integrated Pest Management
What is IPM?
“Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. This information, in combination with available pest control methods, is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment.”
By focusing on preventative services we’re able to reduce the need to deploy chemical extermination measures and minimize the toxicity of the products we deploy as well as any associated health risks. By utilizing structural and biological strategies we’re better able to control a wide variety of pest related problems.
