Integrated Pest Management In Lexington From Action
August 27, 2015
You may not know it, but your property is surrounded by pests. Those pests don't know this either. They're just doing what they were made to do. They spend all day, every day, searching for something to eat, something to drink and a place to hide. The goal of Integrated Pest Management (IMP) is simple: Don't let them find any of these things on your property.
There was a time when a home or business owner wouldn't call a pest control company until invading pests had already caused a problem. Modern IPM works to keep pests from entering in the first place, by identifying what pests are a potential problem and using natural exclusion methods to deter them. Here's how it works:
It begins with an inspection from your Action Pest Control IPM Specialist. We look for food and water sources that might lure pests into your yard, chart weak areas and entry points, and write down all potential ways your property could be allowing pests a safe place to explore.
Your specialist will identify what pests you are dealing with and what pests could become a threat. Many looming pest infestation can be avoided by recognizing the conditions that allow bugs and wildlife to encroach. Your Action Technician will also know what signs to look for. Pests don't make it easy. They often leave subtle clues only an expert can piece together.
Pest control treatments come in many forms. Some of them are steps you and your IPM pest specialist take together to prevent infestation, and some are things only your professional can take care of.
Control of food and water sources.
Removal of breeding sites.
Maintenance of a pest-resistant environment.
Continued monitoring of pest pressures with bait stations, traps and glue boards.
Exclusion installations and modifications where needed.
Focused use of pesticides in needed areas.
There are many IPM methods your Action Pest Specialist can suggest, since no two homes or businesses are the same. Your IPM won't look like your neighbor's IPM. Yours will be custom-tailored to target your specific pests and your specific vulnerabilities.
