My Pest Pros technicians practice what is known as integrated pest management, or IPM, a type of pest control that is green, organic, and environmentally friendly..What this means is that our licensed and trained pest control technicians use a variety of eco-friendly pest eradicating strategies, including inspection, accurate identification, biological controls, physical and mechanical controls, cultural controls, sanitation, habitat modification, and more..
EPA-registered pesticides are a reasonable and useful part of pest management, but should rarely be considered as the first weapon or only weapon. My Pest Pros’ technicians goal is to place as little reliance on pesticides as necessary, and to do everything we can to protect our environment from the addition of more toxic substances. If we employ the other parts of IPM – sanitation, exclusion, habitat modification – to reduce the carrying capacity of the account we are going to get better control for a longer period of time.
Our technicians partner with you or your employees on strategies to identify and eliminate the problems that cause infestations. We look at what pests are there and why before developing an eradication strategy. This can include sealing up porous entry points, eliminating food and water sources, and practicing good sanitation. Working together, we can help exclude and eliminate common pests like ants, cockroaches, mice, rats, and many others.
