There is a concern with the practice of routinely using pesticides where we study, eat, work, and play as to whether this is the best approach to controlling pests. In 1995, Congress defined integrated pest management as “a sustainable approach to managing pests by combining biological, chemical, cultural, mechanical and physical tools in a way that minimizes economic, health, and environmental risks.”
Why Integrated Pest Management (IPM)?
We, as a society, have become increasingly sensitive to our environment; less willing to accept health risks, even very small ones, from contaminants in the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe or in the buildings we occupy.
These concerns are changing the way we live. Pest control, too, is changing with the times. What was a common and accepted practice a decade ago is no longer seen as acceptable to many people. A new approach to pest control has evolved. It is called Integrated Pest Management or IPM. It reduces the risks from pesticides and improves the quality of pest control. A concerned public is asking, and sometimes demanding that IPM be used instead of traditional pest control service, particularly in sensitive sites such as schools, hospitals, and restaurants.
Reducing Pesticide Exposure:
Licensed and unlicensed people are applying pesticides in and around structures, to control unwanted pests such as cockroaches, rats, ants, fleas, and weeds. Despite the reliance on pesticides, there are many ways to control pests without the use of chemicals, such as prevention, improved housekeeping, and habitat modification.
What is IPM?
Integrated pest management, or IPM, is a system of controlling pests by combining biological, mechanical, cultural, physical and chemical control methods in a way that minimizes economic, health and environmental risks. Pests are monitored by regular and careful inspections. The inspections identify pests and the conditions contributing to the pest problems. Based on the inspection the technician then decides what actions are necessary. The knowledge of the pest’s biology and habits will help in determining what methods or techniques would best control the pests at the lowest potential exposure possible.
The most important part of IPM is implementation. An effective IPM program must have the cooperation of the customer and/or their employees. Educating and training the staff about potential pest problems, their causes and the IPM solutions is a very important and simple task. Pesticide training and IPM are intimately linked. Preventing exposure by reducing pesticide use enhances pesticide safety. Simply having informed individuals who will spot and report pest problems will help manage pests. Meeting the ever-changing state and federal laws, notification requirements, and record keeping is a difficult task.
Committed to Providing the Highest Level of Quality Service
Our pest inspectors and applicators are among the best in the industry and are certified and professionally trained. While many believe that extermination is a fairly simple process, it takes a high level of skill to examine and determine which removal method not only best for a particular situation, but one that poses the least amount of risk. The safety and security of our clients is of the utmost importance to us, and we factor this into our IPM plans. It’s not just about removing pests; it’s about doing so while keeping your family safe.
