Important IPM Pest Control Actions
Action Threshold – The size of the pest population before action is taken. Guides future options for pest control, important to think before acting as spraying chemicals around is the worst thing to do because environmental contamination is an ever-present problem.
Identification and Monitoring – make appropriate decisions based on which pests are present to ensure adequate and necessary action is taken. Not only that but making decisions based on action thresholds to avoid overusing pesticides. Knowing what kind of pests are causing problems is essential to being able to solve said issue adequately.
Prevention – we will see to it that pests will not become a threat to your property. Our control methods are both efficient and cost-effective, with little to no risk of unwanted exposure to people and the environment. Preventing pest populations is essential to maintaining the long term health of any property.
Control – Once the aforementioned steps have been carried out and the need for pest control evaluated, the least risky methods are always chosen first. These low-risk options include traps and pheromones to interrupt mating. Spraying non-specific pesticides is always the last resort under IPM. Chemicals are a big issue with us and we are concerned about causing unwanted damage to people and the environment.
IPM works by Minimizing conditions in which pests can thrive including:
Physical: Barriers, traps, vacuuming, and tillage. Prevents pests reproduction more than it kills them directly.
Genetic: Realising sterile males into the wild to minimize pest reproduction. Effective for prevention without needing physical barriers.
Biological: Using a variety of predators, pests, and diseases to reduce and suppress pest populations. Great for killing pests on the spot without the chemical baggage.
Chemical: Using biorationals that are less toxic and target specific aspects of pest biology.
