Integrated Pest Management Puts Rodents and Bugs in Their Place

Waiting until you have a pest infestation means that you’ll have to take more drastic steps to thoroughly eliminate it. Staying one step ahead of pests through Integrated Pest Management (IPM) helps reduce the amount of NJ & NYC pest control you’ll need.

Benefits of IPM

IPM provides a way for pest control professionals to protect homes and businesses from pest infestations. Rather than waiting for a problem to occur, this type of pest management involves spraying at certain times during pest life cycles. Doing this helps cut down on the amount of spray that’s needed, which is better for the environment. IPM also reduces the risk of having to deal with serious pest infestations, since it lowers the risk of having these pests invade in the first place.

Pest Prevention

In addition to IPM, property owners can also take steps to keep pests away. These include not leaving any garbage lying around, trimming trees, bushes and other vegetation away from building exteriors, and fixing water damage.

Property owners should also seal up potential entry points, such as gaps near windows and doors and cracks in the foundation. This makes it harder for pests to enter homes and businesses.
