Your home is often considered to be your biggest lifetime investment. However, if you own a business, you know how critical it is to protect this investment — essentially your livelihood from pests and rodents!
From building a positive reputation to increasing your revenue, your customers are at the heart of what you do. Preventing pest infestations and practicing proper pest control in your business should be an important part of the outstanding service you provide.
The sooner you address a pest problem, the sooner you can rid your business of a more serious pest infestation. Pest control professionals provide the experience and expertise needed to protect your business, employees and customers from pest threats.
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a common sense way for businesses to address pest and rodent problems. This method of pest control focuses on three key techniques: 1) inspecting for pests, 2) identifying pests and 3) control by pest professionals.
IPM bases its pest control recommendations on your business unique needs. Pest control professionals do not use a one size fits all approach. Whether sealing cracks, removing a food or water source or, when necessary, employing pesticide treatments, integrated pest management is about finding the best pest control treatment of pest problems.
ABOUT IPM – Integrated Pest Management
The manner in which structural pest control is performed has changed drastically within the past few years. Pesticide applications once considered common are no longer considered an acceptable practice by many people. A method of pest control known as integrated pest managment (IPM) has emerged. Many have asked that IPM be used instead of traditional pest control services, such as spraying, dusting, fogging, etc., especially in sensitive areas.
What is IPM? IPM is a system of controlling pests that does not depend on the automatic application of insecticides. Priority is given to non-chemical pest management techniques. However, insecticides are used when necessary, but only in a way that minimizes potential exposure to people and the environment. IPM is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment. IPM is most effective with the cooperation of the staff of the facility we service. Through communication and teamwork many pest issues can be resolved without the use of pesticides by inspecting for harborage areas and entry points within the facility.
With the IPM system, services can be performed during regular business hours without disrupting your employees or your operation.

Prevention Tips for your Businesses
Pest prevention is the first step in pest control. Below are just a few ways that your business can avoid pest infestations and the potential health and property threats that pests and rodents can pose.
- “Pest-proof” your business by being vigilant of building maintenance needs
- Dispose of garbage regularly and store in sealed containers.
- Seal cracks and holes on the outside of your business, including entry points for utilities and pipes.
- Don’t overlook proper drainage at the foundation; install gutters or diverts, which will channel water away from the building.
- Be sure your employees keep food sealed and stored properly.
- Clean high-volume areas daily, such as public eating areas and kitchenettes, where crumbs and trash are more likely to build up.
- Call a local pest control professional to inspect for pests and rodents, identify the problem and control the pest(s) using an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach.
