Integrated Pest Management
Our Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an approach to pest control that combines all available methods of preventing pests in a given environment. In our IPM programs, pesticides are utilized only when necessary to achieve acceptable levels of control with the least possible harm or hazard to humans, non-target organisms and the environment.
IPM methods may be biological such as employing growth regulators or parasites; mechanical, such as using traps or other exclusion techniques, or even cultural such as focusing on better sanitation to prevent pest conducive conditions.
A comprehensive inspection is conducted at every facility. Extra attention is given to the five(5) pest-activity zones: entry points, water sources, food sources, harborage points, and customer and employee areas.
FACILITY LAYOUT ANALYSIS
After the comprehensive inspection, all current and potential problem areas are noted. It is important to identify the operations traffic patterns, including the number of people who enter and exit the building every day.
Different types of pests require different types of treatments depending on their growth patterns and characteristics. Operators and customers must team up with facility employees to accurately report where, when and how many pests were seen in order to help prevent infestations and control existing problems.
There are too many variables to provide a ‘cookie cutter’ solution for any given facility. Location, climate, overall condition of the building and its age all play a role in determining an effective pest control treatment program. Our comprehensive inspection and analysis of the facility, including interviews with key employees, help American Pest Control to develop an effective pest control program tailored to the customer.
Non-chemical control options are always the primary option before an application is made.
IPM STRATEGIES FOR INDOORS
Typical pests include; mice, rats, cockroaches, ants, flies, wasps, hornets, yellow jackets, spiders, termites, carpenter ants, and other wood destroying insects. Although beneficial as predators, wasps, hornets, yellow jackets and spiders can be troublesome.
