What Is Integrated Pest Management (IPM)?
Many pest control companies treat every home and business the same way: provide a generic quote without ever seeing the property, then send a technician to spray a chemical pesticide along the baseboards and exterior walls of the structure.
The problem with this approach is that there are alternative methods and techniques that may be used to greatly reduce or entirely eliminate the need for chemical treatment.
Integrated pest management or IPM is the utilization of all available pest control methods, including:
- Bait stations
- Mechanical alterations/exclusion
- Sanitation procedures
- Low-risk chemical treatments
Under IPM protocol, chemical pesticide treatments are used only as a last resort after all other elimination, exclusion and sanitation tactics have been applied.
