We Have A Plan Of Action To Reduce Pest Activity In Your Facility
The presence of insects and rodents in your facility not only compromises the quality of goods and services you provide, but pests also threaten health, damage property, and may hurt your company’s reputation and bottom line. At Action Pest Control, we understand the risk business owners and managers face and will customize a pest control solution to meet your company’s needs. Action’s 10-step preventative pest management program ensures your facility exceeds third-party inspections and internal quality assurance audits. Our highly trained and uniquely qualified service professionals are supported by supervisors, managers, and entomologists who frequently inspect each account to maintain the highest level of service.
At Action Pest Control, our objective is to work with you to create an environment that will not attract pests. By implementing our Integrated Pest Management program, we'll help you eradicate existing pest problems and also resolve the underlying causes of infestations to deter future pest activity.
At Action Pest Control, we believe that a thorough inspection is the cornerstone of an effective IPM program. Inspections help identify what types of pests are present, where pest activity is occurring and helps our team limit the number of products we need to apply in your facility. During our inspection, we also look for pest conducive conditions, which if identified, can be proactively addressed before they contribute to a pest problem.
Pest monitoring is an important aspect of our commercial pest management program. That's because pest activity and conducive conditions may not always be present when your Action Pest Control professional is. By monitoring the facility, we can see what's happening when we aren't there. Monitoring includes the use of glue boards, mechanical traps, insect light traps, pheromone traps, rodent bait, and monitoring stations.
Proper pest identification is critical. While similar in appearance to another, one species may have completely different food preferences, behaviors, and tolerances to treatment. Without this knowledge, control efforts could be delayed or fail altogether.
Eliminating potential food sources, breeding sites, and harborage (places for them to hide) increases the success for the pest control program. Overloading dumpsters, grease build-up in drains, and other unsanitary conditions will only hamper efforts to achieve a pest-free facility. Proper sanitation measures in place also reduce the need for product application into the environment. Your Action Pest Control technician will inspect for sanitation problems and provide recommendations on how to correct them.
Keeping insects and rodents out reduces or eliminates the need for product application. In some sensitive commercial environments or pest situations, product application may not even be an option. Identifying pest entry points and recommending permanent solutions is the responsibility of every Action Pest Control service professional. In some cases, your technician may perform minor pest-proofing with sealants or barrier materials to keep pests out. Larger pest exclusion projects, such as replacing door seals or bird netting, are available for an additional fee.
Like us, along with food and water, most pests also need shelter. Eliminating as many resting or nesting sites as possible reduces the overall pest population a building can hold as well as making it easier to locate the pest or signs of activity. Your Action Pest Control technician will identify places where pests hide, whether active or potential, and recommend the best solution for correction.
In the simplest terms, mechanical controls are traps that capture, hold, or kill pests. Based on the requirements of your facility or its design and conditions, we'll recommend a strategic placement of traps, such as multi-catch rodent traps or insect light traps, to intercept pests before they can enter and potentially contaminate sensitive areas of your facility.
Did you know installing a rock barrier may be effective in preventing rodent burrowing? Likewise, lessening the amount of water on a lawn to avoid standing water may reduce or eliminate midges. That's because rodents and midges, along with other pests, have preferred environmental conditions. For some insects, altering the ambient air temperature or relative humidity can prove lethal while strategic placement and selecting the right type of bulb for any exterior lighting may attract fewer night-flying insects. Your Action Pest Control professional will identify conditions that, if corrected, will prove helpful in reducing pest problems.
While seemingly the most obvious part of your IPM program, product application should be viewed as a last resort when pest activity is present or highly anticipated. Selecting the right product for the pest is also critical to success. The wrong active ingredient, formulation, or bait attractant will allow pest activity to flourish while introducing an unneeded product into the environment.
In a world of increased regulatory and customer scrutiny, it is important that your IPM program not only delivers results, but the documentation to prove it was done lawfully. Action Pest Control professionals are trained to provide detailed documentation of pest activity, conducive conditions, and product application. This is recorded via PestPac Mobile and saved in our database which our customers have 24/7 online access. Recorded pest activity can also be mined for trend analysis depending on the needs of the client.
