Integrated Pest Management Plans for Businesses

Homes are often considered to be our biggest lifetime investment. Yet, if you own a business, you know how critical it is to protect this investment – essentially your livelihood! From building a positive reputation to increasing your revenue, your clients and customers are at the heart of what you do. The incidence of pests and rodents in your place of business can affect the way your customers view you and your company. Further, pests and rodents can pose serious risks to the health of your employees and the safety of your property. Even though many pests are small in stature, their effect on your business bottom line can be enormous.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a common-sense way for a commercial business to address its pest problems. This method of pest control focuses on three basic techniques:  

  1. Inspecting for pests
  2. Identifying pests
  3. Treatment by pest control professionals

A more complete approach to pest control, IPM bases its recommendations on each individual business' unique needs. Pest control professionals do not use a "one size fits all" approach. Whether sealing cracks, removing a food or water source or employing product treatments, integrated pest management is about finding the best options to get rid of pest-associated problems.
