Our Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Practices
We practice an approach to pest control called Integrated Pest Management, or IPM, that leans on common-sense solutions to pest control. We begin with an inspection, followed by identification, and then treatment. Often, treatment is as simple as physically keeping pests out by sealing up cracks in a building’s foundation or by removing sources of food and water that attract pests to a home. This more holistic approach means we resort to chemical pest control far less frequently, protecting you and your family.
Some common pest control solutions include:
- Regularly cleaning your home.
- Doing dishes directly after every meal.
- Ensuring leaky pipes and faucets are fixed.
- Frequently emptying trash containers.
- Using trash receptacles that seal tightly.
- Storing pantry items and pet food in sealed containers.
- Filling cracks and holes in your home’s foundations.
In a nutshell, pests only come to your home because it gives them 1) food, 2) water, and/or 3) shelter. The IPM approach focuses on removing the access pests have to these necessities, which makes your home far less attractive to any species of pest. If none of these actions succeed in resolving pest issues, then chemical sprays can aid in deterring pests.
