Integrated Pest Management uses a four-tiered approach to pest control that includes a series of evaluations and decisions that are designed to produce results while minimizing risks. We use our knowledge and expertise to determine when and which products to use to control animals and pests with the least possible risk to humans, wildlife, and the environment.
The steps in Integrated Pest Management include:
- Setting Action Thresholds – Seeing one bug does not always indicate a need for pesticide use. When developing a plan for Integrated Pest Management, we determine the threshold for pest populations that indicates action must be taken.
- Monitoring and Identifying Pests – Applying pest control products is not required for all pests. We monitor your commercial property for pests and correctly identify any pests that are found to ensure that treatment is only used when required and the right treatment is used for your pest problem.
- Prevention – At Pestex, prevention is the first line of defense for pest management. Depending on the property, this many include taking steps to manage the indoor areas, exterior of the building, and surrounding lawn and natural areas to help avoid pest infestations. These prevention methods don’t pose a risk to people, animals, or the environment.
- Pest Control – When pest control treatment is indicated, we evaluate for the proper method for pest control to ensure maximum results with minimal risk. We use highly targeted prevention methods, such as exclusion, mechanical control, and the use of pheromones to disrupt mating. When additional measures are required, we use targeted application of products that will solve your specific pest problem.
