At Prodigy Pest Solutions, we believe in integrated pest management (IPM). This process allows our technicians to customize prevention plans around your yard and environment, targeting the weak points of your home and finding a real, final solution to your pest problems. Our focus is on eliminating the presence of insects and rodents from your home and preventing new invasions and infestations from occurring. However, we also want to ensure the solutions we use are safe, environmentally friendly, and holistic — in addition to being effective.
What is Integrated Pest Management
IPM is a holistic approach to pest management that takes into account the entire environment — not just the immediate problem area. By taking a proactive and preventative approach, we can identify potential risk factors and address them before they become an issue. This helps to reduce the overall population of pests, as well as the need for harsh chemicals and pesticides.
There are a variety of products that can be used in integrated pest management, including:
– Physical barriers
– Biological controls
Which product is used will depend on the specific situation. Our team of experts will assess your individual needs and create a custom plan to address them.
How Does Integrated Pest Management Work?
The first step in IPM is to identify the pest. This can be done by looking for signs of infestation, such as droppings, gnaw marks, or nests. Once the pest has been identified, our technicians will work to determine the best course of action. This may include removing food sources, sealing entry points, or using traps or bait stations. In some cases, pesticides may be necessary to achieve complete control. However, our goal is always to use the least toxic method possible.
Health and Environmental Benefits
In addition to being better for the environment, IPM is also better for your health. By using a combination of physical, chemical, and biological controls, we can eliminate pests while also minimizing the risks to your family. And because IPM is a long-term solution, you can be sure that your home will be protected from future invasions.
When pest chemicals are overused, they can have harmful effects on both your health and the environment. Chemicals that are designed to kill pests can also be toxic to humans and animals. In addition, when these chemicals are released into the environment, they can pollute the air, water, and soil. This can lead to long-term health problems for both people and animals. In some cases, overuse of pesticides can also lead to the development of resistance in pests, making them more difficult to control in the future.
