How Our Integrated Pest Management Method Is Safe AND Effective

At Earthwise Pest Management, we created our home pest control company here in Sacramento and Carmichael because we recognized a void in the marketplace. Due to the fact that there are very few pest management providers who bill themselves as “pest and rodent exclusion experts”, we understood that this aspect of home animal control is often one of the most overlooked elements of safe and effective work in our field.

Safe Pest Control

Our Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques involve a three-step process which is centered around green pest control. In our last post, titled “Why Should I Hire A Green Pest Control Company?” highlighted some of the history of dangerous pesticides that have been abolished since their widespread use. The most significant point we made in this post was that it would be foolish to think that we have a comprehensive understanding as to how all of the “safe” pesticides currently use might affect us years down the road. It was only until decades after the once-commonly-accepted pesticides that researchers, manufacturers, exterminators, and, finally, the public learned of the industry’s misguided approach.

This approach was not without its consequences either; children who were diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma were shown to be seven times more likely to have lived in a house that had pesticides sprayed in it than otherwise. Put another way, children who were diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma had a likelihood of living in a pesticide-sprayed home that was seven times greater than children who had lived in a residence where pesticides hadn’t been sprayed. Again, we don’t reiterate this information to scare you, but to let our readers understand a bit of context when it comes to our pest exclusion, rodent prevention, and eco-friendly pest management techniques. We hope you better understand the aforementioned “void in the marketplace”. Suffice it to say, we are a provider of safe pest control services because we aren’t silly enough to presume that researchers and manufacturers aren’t capable of making the same mistake again.

Effective Pest Control

Whether we are talking about home pest control, commercial pest management, our bed bug solution, or rodent control in Carmichael or Sacramento for your home or place of business, you want a pest management solution that flat-out works. If your pest exclusion services aren’t effective, there’s no point in administering “safe pest control” for the sake of safety. This would cost the good folks of Sacramento and beyond time and money when they should be getting their problem solved. Luckily, we’ve been around more than a few years here at Earthwise Pest Management, and we’ve developed a method designed to safely solve pest problems. Yes, prevention is the best way to stop pests from invading before it starts,

Our Proven, Three-Step Method

The very first step of IPM is to perform a detailed inspection on the premises of the structure in question. Be it residential or commercial in nature, we’ll take a thorough look around and inside the building to identify potential risk. We’ll analyze breeding sites and harborage areas as well.

Secondly, we’ll focus on pest identification. Pest identification is absolutely critical in the process because it guides our decision-making process in reference to prevention and treatment techniques. Obviously, you want to enlist a local pest management company worth their salt when it comes to identifying and distinguishing various pests and rodents. Joe Hawkins, our owner and founder, is a second-generation pest management professional who has been in and around the industry since he was a child. Joe has fostered a deep dedication to becoming experts in our field, and that involves ensuring that our technicians and specialists have an expert’s understanding of all the local pests and critters in our area. So no matter if you are in need of silverfish removal, bed bug treatment, spider control, flea removal, squirrel removal, wasp removal, ant control, moth control, ant removal, earwig removal, or even cockroach removal, we have the knowledge to apply to your situation to effectively solve your problem.

The final step of our proven Integrated Pest Management method is the selection of a treatment procedure that is appropriate for both the pests and rodents at hand and the structure in question. We have an array of pest exclusion and control techniques at our disposal, from the sealing of cracks to the installation of screens to recommending a change in sanitation practices. We also have botanical pest control materials at our disposal, should there arise an issue that needs to be addressed head-on.

All in all, our approach is thorough and well-measured. And as our glowing testimonials and reputation show anyone who is paying attention, our customers are more than pleased with the results.

Quarterly Pest Maintenance

Before we say goodbye in today’s post, we’d like to briefly highlight a rather unique pest control service we offer to the greater Sacramento area. While some folks might be reactive when it comes to dealing with termites, ants, and other bugs, we take a proactive approach. But to do so successfully, it’s usually the case that you need to employ a year-round approach in order maintain control over pests. For example, most pest control companies provide treatment that will last a little less than a full season, or two to three months. While our pest exclusion services will generally protect you longer than that timeframe, there is no “set it and forget it” in this industry; preventative daily maintenance of your home’s interior (and, often, exterior) is vital to maintaining control over many pests here in Carmichael.

That’s why we’ve introduced our quarterly pest control service. We’ll come out to your commercial or residential property once every three months to make sure that your home is well-protected from any pests that might target your structure. Our technicians will thoroughly inspect your home and seal off any dangerous cracks or other vulnerable points of entry. And while many people implicitly believe that pest control isn’t necessary during the colder months of the year, this is not the case. When it turns cold is when your home is when your home is threatened in a new way, as bugs and pests will often seek out your residence as a place to find warmth, food, water, and shelter. These are problems that must be handled quickly. Otherwise, these unwanted insects can cause structural damage to your home.
