We perform least toxic pest management services for schools and commercial buildings. We have been doing IPM since 1991 and provide creative, low toxic, mostly non-chemical solutions to pest problems utilizing a more holistic approach.

What is your definition of Integrated Pest Management (IPM)?

A method of approaching pest problems using an analysis of all situations from a holistic stand point. We emphasize change in physical and cultural practices and careful monitoring.

 

Is pest management performed on a specific schedule?

In commercial food establishments, inspections are carried out on a regularly scheduled basis in order to keep monitoring for signs of any pests.

How are pest problems identified?

By physical sightings reported by facility employees, by evidence collected, by glue traps/monitors, by pheromone traps, etc. Before controls are implemented, the pest is identified. We try to find their source and effect sanitation and maintenance changes to remove and prevent future infestations. If, after these efforts are finished, it is still necessary to apply any chemical, only least toxic chemicals are used.

What practices do you use to prevent and/or control pests?

Inspection reports list all maintenance/sanitation items which need attending. We monitor for insects using pheromones, glue traps and inspections.

 

Do you use biological controls?

No.

 

Do you use borates?

We use boric acid extensively. It is our first choice against insects.

Do you use synthetic chemicals?

At present, we use Gentrol (hydroprene), Maxforce baits (hydromethylnon or fipronil) and Avert (abamectin).

What are the top 10 pesticides you use/sell/recommend?

boric acid, boric acid baits, Maxforce, Gentrol and Avert.

If pesticides are used, how much are used per year of each?

Pesticides are applied by hand dusting, syringes and crack & crevice tubes in aerosols (Gentrol).

Does your company perform habitat modification?

Yes. Caulking, installing weatherstripping, improving drainage of refrigerator units and improving air flow.

Do you use any physical or mechanical controls?

Yes, the same methods used in habitat modification plus glue traps and rodent traps.

What type of fertilizers do you use/sell/recommend?

N/A.

 

What do you usually use/sell/recommend for addressing:

termites Did Not Respond (DNR)

cockroaches Boric acid, Maxforce and Avert.

fleas DNR

carpenter ants Maxforce.

fire ants DNR

ants (indoor) Boric acid.

crabgrass DNR
