What Is Integrated Pest Management

Integrated Pest Management is also known as integrated pest control. It is a way of taking and organizing a systematic treatment plan for pest control services. By organizing a systematic treatment plan we can make sure that we are properly treating for the target pest. all by using the right products, devices, and techniques. Knowing the tools, pesticides, and knowledge of target pests is extremely important in the pest control industry. Therefore you don't just grab any old bottle of pesticide and say "this will do the trick." It doesn't work that way.

Pest Control Evaluation - Integrated Pest Management

First thing as a pest Control Technician, we need to evaluate the situation on site. We need to find where the problem areas are. The customer takes a huge role in this first step. In order to evaluate the pest problem, we first need to know where the customer is seeing the most activity. Also sometimes we can narrow it down to where the infestation started in the first place. Therefore customer input is important. Many pests are nocturnal and are more active at night. Being the home owner would more likely witness this activity.

Pest Harborage Areas - Integrated Pest Management

The second step in the process of IPM (Integrated Pest management) is to find out where the harborage areas of the pests are. Also where they are feeding and where they are laying their eggs. By doing this we can think of ways that we can break down the population. Mainly by eliminating the food source, harborage areas, or eggs themselves.

Pest Control Plan - Integrated Pest Management

The third step in our approach to IPM (Intergrated Pest Management) is to lay out a plan of control that will lead to the ellimination of the pest problem for good. Some pests like German cockroaches, bedbugs, and ticks require multiple treatments. The reason for multiple treatments is to control various stages of the pests lifecycle. For example, I may flush out and kill every adult cockroach but we still have eggs left over that are going to hatch. Some Pesticides have a shelf life and longivity of time before they are ineffecteve or don't hold up as well. Also some pesticides last 10 days while others can last 6 months. It all depends on concentrate and formulation. For instance wettable powders stick to surfaces differently than emulsifiable or microencapsulated formulations. Another reason for followups is to make sure products like baits and growth regulators are being effective. Growth regulaters inhibit pests like cockroaches so that when their eggs hatch they become infertil (can't produce eggs). There is also mechanical measures in certain pest issues like rodents where we exclude entry points that they may have to get into the home.
