Integrated Pest Management (IPM)
What is Integrated Pest Management (IPM)?
Integrated pest management, or IPM, is a process you can use to solve pest problems while minimizing risks to people and the environment. IPM can be used to manage all kinds of pests anywhere—including your residential or commercial property.
Rather than simply eliminating the pests you see right now, using IPM means you’ll look at environmental factors that affect the pest and its ability to thrive. Armed with this information, you can create conditions that are unfavorable for the pest.
As Arborists, we develop and oversee IPM programs that make an overall formula for keeping your property safe, fertile and as environmentally friendly as possible. We believe in sustainability and creating a culture on your property that is functional and effective. Call us to create a program for your property.
Why Choose Integrated Pest Management?
Significant reductions in the volumes and toxicity of pesticides applied can be achieved when an IPM program has been implemented properly. The reductions result from the elimination of scheduled pesticide applications that are often made as preventive treatments. Precision applications of low toxicity pesticides rather than typical baseboard applications or treatment of an entire property also have proven to greatly reduce the total volumes of pesticides applied.
Whether for your home, municipalities or commercial developments, integrated pest management is not a complex process – it simply requires the knowledge to plan proactively throughout the year for changes in conditions and the habits of pests.
