Green Pest Management

Green Pest Management Is the technologically advanced Integrated Pest Management (IPM), through the use of modern alternatives and non traditional pest control strategy. IPM poses the least risks while maximizing benefits and reducing costs. IPM is not a single pest control method but, rather, a series of pest management evaluations, decisions, and controls. According to the EPA the following four steps must be taken into consideration.

(1) Action Thresholds: Before taking any pest control action, IPM first sets an action threshold, a point at which pest populations or environmental conditions indicate that pest control action must be taken. Sighting a single pest does not always mean control is needed. The level at which pests will become an economic threat is critical to guide future pest control decisions.

(2) Monitoring and Identifying Pests: Not all insects, weeds, and other living organisms require control. Many organisms are innocuous, and some are even beneficial. IPM programs work to monitor for pests and identify them accurately, so that appropriate control decisions can be made in conjunction with action thresholds. This monitoring and identification removes the possibility that pesticides will be used when they are not really needed or that the wrong kind of pesticide will be used.

(3) Prevention: As a first line of pest control, IPM programs work to manage the crop, lawn, or indoor space to prevent pests from becoming a threat. In an agricultural crop, this may mean using cultural methods, such as rotating between different crops, selecting pest-resistant varieties, and planting pest-free rootstock. These control methods can be very effective and cost-efficient and present little or no risk to people or the environment.

(4) Control: Once monitoring, identification, and action thresholds indicate that pest control is required, and preventive methods are no longer effective or available, IPM programs then evaluate the proper control method both for effectiveness and risk. Effective, less risky pest controls are chosen first, including highly targeted chemicals, such as pheromones to disrupt pest mating, or mechanical control, such as trapping or weeding. If further monitoring, identifications, and action thresholds indicate that less risky controls are not working, then additional pest control methods would be employed, such as targeted spraying of pesticides. Broadcast spraying of non-specific pesticides is a last resort.

 

PEST TERMINATORS INC. GREEN PROTOCOL FOR PEST MANAGEMENT

(A) Inspection: Pest Terminators, Inc. first inspects and monitors the property and its surrounding ares for potential pest problem.

(B) Identification: Pest Terminators, Inc. then identifies the particular pest problem and its habitat. Pest Terminators, Inc. will first eliminate the sources of food, water and shelter that pests need to survive (for example, they may seal cracks, recommend the installation of screens or remove debris from the exterior of the building).

Before making a traditional pesticide application, they must first discuss it with you and obtain your consent.

(D) Follow-Up: Customer Communication and follow up discussion with the property manger and owner will be conducted in every step of the pest control process to evaluate the on going success rate and efficacy of the treatment process.

(E) Implementation: Last but not the least, after every follow up discussion with the customer, alternative pest control measures must be implemented in order to achieve optimum success and zero pest threshold.
