What Is Integrated Pest Management and How Does It Benefit You?
Integrated pest management (IPM) is a holistic approach towards pest risk management by utilising proactive control methods. It requires a combination of pest exclusion practices that involves good sanitation procedures along with extensive monitoring. With IPM in place, you can mitigate potential pest infestation eventually saving your business cost in the long run.
Pest Act has developed its knowledge and expertise to offer effective pest management solutions through a large team of professionally trained technicians. Our Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach is based on our three principles that together we call LCD (Live well by controlling and destroying pests). IPM at Pest Act is a partnership between us and our customers.
A non-judicious application of chemical provides just a temporary solution – and a penalty to our environment in the long run. Pest Act Pest Control believes in an integrated approach towards pest management.
We tackle pest problems through the use of carefully selected and well-documented strategies. After studying the pest and the surroundings, a conscious and judicious mix of non-chemical and chemical methods are applied.
Use of chemicals is the last resort and we still have an option to choose between high toxic to low toxic chemicals and high dose to accurate doses that an unqualified pest controller from nearby may not be able to judge and calculate. Most importantly, it is the decision to use or not to use a certain component that often determines success or failure.
Common sense has no substitute.
