Why use Integrated Pest Management?

Pest Management In and Around Structures September 03, 2015 Print Friendly and PDF
IPM programs are designed to reduce health hazards to the people that inhabit the building or structures.

IPM programs accomplish this by using approaches such as sanitation, baiting for pests, trapping pests, and monitoring for pests and using the least hazardous/ least toxic pesticides when they are needed.

By having an IPM program in place, you are taking special protective measures to reduce pesticide exposure to non-pest organisms and the environment.
