Integrated Pest Management

Effective and environmentally friendly strategies customized to your business.


Integrated pest management, or IPM, is a process used to solve pest problems while minimizing risks to people and the environment. It’s a 360-degree strategy that focuses on combining lowest-risk treatment strategies, including long-term prevention of pests, to minimize both the damage they can do and environmental concerns. The goal is to do more than spray by employing as many other methods as possible and therefore minimizing the risks to health and the environment while still taking care of the pests. The techniques that are part of IPM are what provide you with the benefits of utilizing this strategy. IPM can be used to manage all kinds of pests anywhere – no matter the industry.
