Integrated Pest Management Can Help Keep Pests Away
Integrated pest management works by looking at your home, the environment surrounding your home, and your pest control goals. By using the most comprehensive information available on the life cycles of pests and their interactions within the environment, we help you manage any potential pests in an economically efficient manner, creating as few ecological hazards as possible.
We get started when we sit down with you and set some actionable thresholds. Those are the points when pest populations reach a size where action has to be taken. That doesn’t always translate to a single sighting, though. We will usually work on the right numbers together.
From there, we engage in a monitoring program. Keep in mind that not all pests are a problem. Instead, some pests can control others, so we’ll only use pest control methods when it’s necessary.
Pest prevention is also a big part of our program. We work to manage your lawn and indoor spaces to make certain pests never become a threat in your home. There are actually a number of preventative steps you can take to keep pests out of your home, including simply evaluating things like your window and door screens, the condition of your foundation, and any damage to your home. If we spot anything that looks like an invitation to pests, we’ll let you know immediately so you can take care of it.
Should pest control ever be required, we’ll look to the least risky methods first. That could include targeted chemicals that disrupt the mating process or even traps that might help to keep them out of your home.
Whole house pest management is usually an ongoing process, but working with a company like us can keep your home pest free month after month. To learn more about our integrated pest management program, contact us today.
