Integrated Pest Management (IPM)
If you prefer a more eco-friendly solution to pest management, after a thorough inspection of your home or property we will identify the pests present and will help you decide whether or not the pest population in and around your home or building is tolerable. Often what many consider to be “pests” are actually non-harmful insects that control other unwanted bugs and can be beneficial to the ecosystem around you, but we understand that doesn’t always mean you want them in or near your home.
We will create a plan for you with steps to help you control unwanted pests using the least damaging methods to the environment, your home, and your family. Often these methods include changing habits, trapping insects, relocating or trimming shrubbery, sealing cracks, and sealing and storing food properly. With an integrated pest management approach, we try to avoid the use of pesticides unless other methods have not worked.
