What Is Integrated Pest Management?

At Earthwise Pest Management, we use a pest control method called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). This is a three-step process that allows us to safely and effectively remove any current pests and help you to prevent future infestations. This environmentally-responsible pest control method also allows us to minimize our use of pesticides which is not only good for the environment but also for you and your family.

How Does IPM Work?

IMP is a three-step process. We begin with a detailed inspection where we learn everything that we can about your property as well as the infestation. We ask questions like, “how did the pest get into your home?” and “where are the pests finding food and water?” so that we can remove the pest’s food source, water source, and entry points. We also determine the size and maturity of the infestation. 

After we finish our inspection, we properly identify the pest. This goes beyond just understanding that you have a cockroach or rodent infestation. We need to know exactly what species we are dealing with so that we can create an effective pest control treatment. 

The third step is creating and implementing a pest control treatment plan. In this step, we remove any pests from your home. We educate you on what we learned about the infestation and your property and make suggestions on how to reduce the chances of another pest infestation. We may suggest things like repairing cracks in your foundation, keeping your outdoor trash cans further from your home, or storing your food in tightly sealed containers.

Integrated Pest Management Steps:

  • Step 1: Detailed Inspection
  • Step 2: Pest Identification
  • Step 3: Pest Treatment

Why Is IPM the Best Method of Pest Control?

IPM is a superior pest control method first and foremost because it works. It’s extremely effective at removing pest infestations from your home and with continued pest management, our IPM program can keep the pests away from your home as well. However, IPM is not just effective, but it is also safer for you, your family, and the environment since we minimize our use of pesticides.
