As awareness grows about the effects of our environments on our health, conscientious homeowners are seeking out solutions that are more eco-friendly and healthier for their families. But does embracing a healthier environment mean settling for a home full of bugs? No way!

Integrated Pest Management for healthier homes

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) offers safety for your family without settling for insufficient pest control. The IPM approach combines common sense with in-depth knowledge of pests- both their life cycles and the ways in which they fit into their ecosystem. The goals of IPM are to manage pests in the most economical way possible, while posing the least possible hazard to people, pets, your home, and the wider environment. IPM makes use of all applicable pest control methods to deal with the given situation, which can include the strategic use of pesticides.

How does Integrated Pest Management work?

  • Prevention– We will advise you on the best preventative measures to keep pests out of your home, from home repairs to landscaping tips.
  • Identification and monitoring– We provide education on what the homeowner is seeing and/or indications of a problem if they arise later, and may deploy non-chemical monitoring devices to determine the nature and extent of an infestation.
  • Treatment– The inspection and monitoring of your infestation allow us to create a treatment plan that requires the least possible use of toxic chemicals.
