We will work together as team to handle your Pest Control needs.
What is Integrated Pest Management(IPM)?
It is a science-based decision making process that employs biological, mechanical, cultural & chemical control methods in such a ways to help minimize economic, environmental and public health risks associated with pests & pest management practices.
This is rapidly becoming the standard for taking care of pest problems in agriculture and urban settings. Consumer concerns about pesticides and food safety is growing and placing an increased pressure on land grant universities to provide growers with effective management strategies that will minimize the safe & effective pest management strategies for use in their own homes and gardens.
Integrated Pest Management is not a single pest control method but, rather a series of Pest management evaluations, decisions and controls. In practicing Integrated Pest Management for potential pest infestation follow a 4 tiered approach. The four steps include:
• Set Action Thresholds: Before taking any pest control action, IPM first sets an action threshold, a point at which pest populations or environmental conditions indicate that pest control action must be taken. Sighting a single pest does not always mean control is needed. The level at which pest will either become an economic threat is critical to guide future pest control decisions.
• Monitor and Identify Pests: Not all insects, weeds and other living organisms require control. Many organisms are innocuous and some are even beneficial. IPM programs work to monitor for pests and identify them accurately, so that appropriate control decisions can be made in conjunction with action thresholds. This monitoring and identification removes the possibility that pesticides will be used when they are not really needed or that the wrong kind of pesticide will be used.
• Prevention: As a first line of pest control, IPM programs work to manage the crop, lawn or indoor space to prevent pests from becoming a threat. In an agriculture crop, this may mean using cultural methods, such as rotating between different crops, selecting pest-resistant varieties and planting pest free rootstock. These control methods can be very effective and cost efficient and present little to no risk to people or the environment.
• Control: Once monitoring, identification and action thresholds indicate that pest control is required and preventive methods are no longer effective or available. IPM programs then evaluate the proper control method both for effectiveness and risk. Effective, less risky pest controls are chosen first, including highly targeted chemicals, such as pheromones to disrupt pest mating or mechanical control, such as trapping or weeding. If further monitoring, identifications and action thresholds indicate that less risky controls are not working, then additional pest control methods would be employed, such as targeted spraying of pesticides. Broadcast spraying of non-specific pesticides is a last resort.
