Commercial Pest Control in Central Massachusetts

Commercial Shopping Building

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.

Pest Management You Can Count On: From 1,000 to 1,000,000 Square Feet

There are a number of potential health concerns, for you, your employees and customers, such as: the antigens in cast skins of cockroaches that can cause allergic reactions in occupants’ respiratory systems; rodent feces that aid in the transmission of many dangerous viruses; rodents that carry deer ticks. On the other hand, you have been pressured by today’s environmental issues to reduce pesticide use in and around your facility.

The Solution? Call Ransford today and we will customize an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program for your business. ​IPM is a long-term strategy designed to keep pest population levels below desirable thresholds through inspections, sanitation recommendations, biological, mechanical, and cultural controls, exclusion and the judicious use of materials if necessary.

  • Inspection: Our trained and licensed personnel perform a thorough, meticulous examination of the facility to determine pest presence, density, and population levels. We observe the cultural habits of your staff and the construction of your building in order to customize a plan that best fits your business’ needs. Then we conclude our investigation by having a contact person meet with the decision makers on your staff to discuss any special concerns you may have.
  • Plan Design: When composing the program, we take into consideration all results of the initial inspection. We determine the frequency of future inspections, develop thresholds, and appoint a special contact person at your facility, who then becomes an integral part of the monitoring process.
  • Treatment Specifications: At this point, we compose procedures for pest population level reduction. Control measures commence with our intensive initial service along with any exclusion methods we are using. And as pest population levels drop below the desired threshold, monitoring for both rodents and pests continue.
  • Service and Evaluation: We constantly review and evaluate the program as it progresses. Supervisors and our on-staff Massachusetts Licensed Professionals will periodically be on-site to track success rates, make recommendations, and address your concerns.
  • Your Role in the IPM Process: Despite our vast amount of experience and skill, we can’t take all the credit for our successes. The customer always plays an important role. We will discuss this with you in detail, but, in brief, your role involves:
  • Commitment: Your staff must be committed to the idea of IPM.
  • Funding: Recommendations made by our staff sometimes require a financial commitment.
  • Follow-through: Environment alteration requests, habitat modifications, and stock rotations are common recommendations made to your staff and it’s important that they follow through on each step.
  • Communication: This is probably the most important aspect of the program. All pest sightings, alterations, and concerns must be conveyed to our staff. The key to success in IPM is working together not as vendor and client, but as partners.
