Steps of Integrated Pest Management
We use the following steps to eradicate a pest problem and prevent the pests from returning to your home.
1. Pest Inspection
At ASAP Pest control, we begin our IPM process with a pest inspection, which includes monitoring of your home to better identify and target the pest problem. Before proceeding to specific pest control tasks, we first set an action threshold, a point at which pest populations or environmental conditions indicate that pest control action must be taken. We identify the level of severity of the pest control issue to determine the appropriate actions.
2. Pest Exclusion
The previous steps will indicate if additional pest control measures are required and if the preventative measures that are currently in place are no longer effective. The exclusion step in the IMP is to evaluate the most effective integrated pest control method available and proceed with the least risky pest control options first.
Examples of this include the use of highly targeted pheromones to disrupt insect mating. After further review and monitoring, if we determine that the current integrated pest management methods are not proving effective, we may then proceed to additional exclusion methods such as pesticide spraying, or broadcast spraying as a last resort.
3. Pest Monitoring
Our IPM programs at ASAP Pest Control allow us to continuously monitor for pests. We will ensure that appropriate decisions are made in conjunction with the current pest control concern. This ensures that extreme measures are only used when necessary.
