Taking the Safer Approach to Pest Control With Integrated Pest Management
It seems everyone is going green in more ways than one these days. From installing rain barrels around your home to considering solar panels for your roof, the eco-friendly approach is popular today. Despite the fact that everyone wants to be a little greener, though, few people actually want the outdoors in, particularly when it comes to pests. How do you keep pests out without the harsh chemical approach, though? Integrated Pest Management.
What Is It?
Integrated Pest Management, or IPM, is a way to get rid of best problems by making your home or yard less inviting to them. It takes some time and a bit of professional help, but in the long run, you (and your home) are going to be far better off).
You can’t simply create your own IPM program and have it be more effective. Instead, you’ll need to follow a certain set of steps to reach your goal. That usually starts with contacting a professional pest control company like us so we can set you on the right path. The process begins when we take a look around your home and set some thresholds. The inspection process is a pretty painless one, but don’t think for a moment that it’s not detailed. We’ll talk about the kinds of pests you can expect in your area and exactly what you can do about each one. For example, we know that windows that are improperly screened can be a gateway for all sorts of pests to head into your home. We also know that mulch too close to your home can be problematic as well. We’ll talk about all kinds of things you can do to keep pests out of your home during our evaluation.
Once you’ve implemented all of our pest-proofing suggestions, you can expect to be reasonably pest free. In the event that a problem does come up, though, we’ll be there to help. From using traps to employing eco-friendly pesticides where necessary, we’ll help control any problems that occur despite your best efforts.
IPM is really a common-sense method to keeping pests out of your home. Learn more about how we can help implement IPM in your home when you contact us today.
