Commercial Pest Control with Integrated Pest Management
When you think of pest control, you think of a business that comes in to remove a specific pest. That’s the traditional approach, and it’s still a crucial part of what Ransford Environmental Solutions does. Yet the more we learn about pests, the more we realize that infestations happen because of an environment that draws the pest into a home or office. Integrated pest management is a long-term and effective strategy that works to prevent pests. An IPM plan can make a lasting change for office pest control.
Integrated Pest Management
Think of it this way. A business takes steps to make sure it’s safe in terms of security. It takes steps to make sure it’s safe on a cyber security front, as well. Both of these elements involve long term strategic plans that are built around regular evaluation and good everyday habits.
Integrated pest management is a lot like this. Sure, we can come in and remove an infestation, but if you don’t address how the infestation got in to a building, or what attracted them there in the first place, then you’ll just be calling us again in a few months. We don’t mind the repeat business, but we know well enough that this can be prevented with a long-term IPM plan.
The IPM Plan
After an initial inspection, we can identify and present elements that can be changed to decrease future pest problems. If we close and seal gaps and entry points to the building through which rodents and bugs can enter, then we take care of future infestations for you. If we take a look at your landscaping and make a few small changes, we can drastically reduce the risk of cockroach infestation. By fixing a leak, we can deter a multitude of bug infestations. By closing up access points where electrical wires come into the home, we can prevent rodent infestation and keep your electricity safer.
Regular checks and inspections also help catch any issue before it becomes a more intense problem. We improve office pest control while reducing the risk of infestation and contamination. We reduce the long-term need for pesticides and baits. This reduces worker and customer/client exposure significantly.
An IPM plan is essentially preventative medicine for pest control. It can save you greater expense down the road by taking a few simple steps today. Learn more about IPM by contacting us today.
