Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Program
Integrated pest management (IPM) is a best practice approach toward pest management that results in long-term effective suppression of pest populations while minimising hazards to human health and environment.
We don’t just spray chemicals! The most effective way to control pests is to address the cause of the pest problem directly.
The program includes a comprehensive checklist, specifically designed for your site and business type, which aids in identifying the presence of conditions that are conducive to attracting pests.
Pest control (chemical) measures are not a long-term solution in maintaining a sustainable, pest free environment. A best practice treatment plan for your business employs a combination of investigation, monitoring practices and then followed by chemical/baiting treatment where required.
Without a comprehensive investigation and monitoring program, pest activities can undergo un-noticed until they become a bigger problem – infestation!
Our IPM preventative pest management program focuses on long-term prevention or suppression of pest problems through a combination of practices referred to as ERDM.
This is a four (4) step approach emphasising multiple control measures that requires working in tandem with you to attain best results. These are:
Actions to prevent pests from entering the premises. This helps to protect your premises by avoiding the problems of dealing with a pest infestation in the first instance.
Despite best efforts, pests cannot be completely excluded from entering your premises and cause problems. Restriction adopts strategies to limit pest, movement, breeding and damage.
Having identified possible entry or pest activity issues, attention is focused on destruction (elimination) strategies.
The final step of the program is monitoring. Exclusion, Restriction along with Destroying pests alone is not sufficient without adopting adequate ongoing monitoring strategies. Monitoring identifies any potential problems early with the aim of controlling minor issues in becoming major infestations.
We provide independent pest reports
that are based on our IPM programs.
We evaluate current pest management practices at your business premises, the environmental conditions impacting effective pest management and recommendations for improvement going forward.
