Integrated Pest Management Practices


Integrated Pest Management or IPM is an effective yet environmentally sensitive approach to pest control that uses a combination of common sense practices to remove pests, like ants, and prevent them from returning in the future.

IPM reduces the dependency on harmful pesticides and they are only applied when necessary. Each pest control issue a customer faces is unique, which is why it’s so important to pinpoint the source of your ant infestation and devise an ant control plan suited to your needs.

Proven Ant Repellents & Deterrents

Certain species of ants require specific ant repellents and deterrents in order for the ant colony to be exterminated. Your pest specialist should be trained to identify ants and locate their colony so the source of your ant infestation will be targeted during our treatment process.
