Integrated Pest Management – Proactive Pest Control For Your Home

Safe Pest Control WoodstockWhen it comes to protecting your home from pests, you may have heard of one of the newest methods which is becoming a very popular approach to managing pests called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The team at Protect All Pest Control is one of the leading edge providers of this service in Woodstock, GA and the surrounding area. But many homeowners are not aware of what IPM even means.

In the past, many pest control services were reactive – wait for an infestation and then spray chemicals to rid the home of pests. But in today’s world with a focus on being environmentally friendly and protecting our families from the overuse of chemicals, many pest control programs have adopted more proactive IPM pest control techniques.

IPM is a broad approach that focuses on many different aspects of pest control rather than just the random application of pesticides. The main goal is to eliminate pest problems before they occur which requires efforts from both homeowners and pest management professionals. There are many different components of an integrated approach to pest management and at Protect All Pest Control you can count on a customized program to best suit your home’s pest control needs, led by trained and licensed pest control professionals.

Here are some of the components that make up an Integrated Pest Management approach –

  • Prevention – Finding ways to avoid pest problems before they happen such as pest-proofing your home.
  • Monitoring – Non-chemical monitoring devices installed by the pest control pros to watch areas that are most likely to have a pest infestation.
  • Education – Learning the signs of pest infestations so you can identify a problem before it gets out of hand.
  • Inspection – Both homeowners and pest management professionals should perform regular inspections of the property, both inside and out, and watch for any signs of pests.
