Integrated Pest Management Tactics (IPM)
What is IPM?
IPM stands for integrated pest management, which means there are more ways to protect from pests than just putting chemicals down – we suggest different IPM tactics to our clients after all of our appointments. There are several things you can do such as reducing cultural conditions.
- Sanitation practices: keep your home as clean as possible in order to avoid pests entering your home
- Do not leave firewood near entry-points in your home – this can cause an increase in certain types of pests
- Do not leave doors and windows open without the screens
- The less clutter on the floor the better
