What is Integrated Pest Management?steam cleaning to remove bed bugs
Integrated Pest Management is the use of all possible methods in a logical combination in order to minimize the risk of pesticide exposure while maximizing its effectiveness and safeguarding the environment.  It requires an understanding of the pest, and its habits, education of clients and all stakeholders involved so each can do their part to assist in prevention and control.

We provide the following services as part of an IPM approach to remove and kill much of the infestation before pest control treatment is performed. This also has the effect of enhancing the success of the treatment. As bed bugs are highly resistant to current products used, ensuring that treatment can be done effectively and the removal by vacuuming and killing with steam, reduce reliance on the pesticides and gives the pest control technician more time to treat meticulously.

The initial visit will allow our experts to asses which combination of services you need and develop a customized treatment plan, answer any questions, and provide a written or verbal quote. If necessary we also provide additional services such as:

All of our methods are environmentally friendly and ensure that fumigators can move freely around the space and treat all affected areas, providing the best protection against re-infestation and cross-infestation.

Why not just use a pest control firm to save on cost?
Pesticides alone will not get rid of an infestation. Pesticides may achieve short term reduction in numbers but without an IPM approach the problem will return. Over the last fifty years bed bugs have built up a resistance to the common pesticides used against them. Most of the stronger products have been banned due to concerns about health effects on children. The current pesticides have very poor residual action and only work if they hit the bed bugs directly.

Two treatments are needed as eggs are not affected by sprays, and will hatch within a period of two weeks. The better the preparation, the more likely the treatment will kill all the infestation. Pest control treatments can be quite expensive, so using our services will certainly enhance the likelihood of success in elimination, and save the cost and health concerns of additional spray treatments.
