ipm explained

Integrative Pest Management is an industry-leading, three-pronged approach to pest control based around treatment, inspection, and prevention. This cycle repeats if necessary, however, the overall goal is to create a more economical approach to pest control, rather than indiscriminate spraying and extermination methods. If implemented properly, the end results of IPM are a comprehensive stop to infestations in the short-term and long-lasting relief from pest problems overall.

Advantages of IPM include:

  • Safe service to keep structures, people, and plants healthy
  • Sustainable alternatives to traditional pest treatment
  • Reduced potential for air and groundwater contamination
  • Protection for pets and other non-intrusive animals
  • Fewer pesticides and less spraying
  • Fewer side effects related to pesticide use and spraying
  • Elimination of re-entry restrictions
  • Decreased hassle for property owners, employees, and tenants
  • More cost-effective and time-efficient for everybody in the long-run
