Integrated Pest Management – what’s all the hype with IPM?

BY webmaster

What is IPM?

IPM stands for Integrated Pest Management; it is a common-sense pest management strategy, focusing on long-lasting results while all the while having minimal impact on our environment and loved ones. PCI Pest Control is proud to say that we utilize IPM with every encounter we have in the field. We utilize the following steps to ensure we are taking the utmost care of our customer – providing lasting satisfactory results, and keeping their health, safety, and well-being in mind:

1.Inspection and identification: We always make sure we thoroughly inspect the current pest situation at our customer’s property. Proper identification of the known pest is key to knowing the necessary treatment needed.

2.Prevention: We offer many different options of prevention. To stay ahead of the curve, we have preventative recurring services which keep pests at bay. When dealing with a current infestation we also give recommendations to prevent the issue from reoccurring, such as exclusion work to repair a potential entry point for a rodent into the home, or caulking cracks and crevices which could give way into your home for insects.

3.Monitor: We monitor pest situations to be able to determine what’s the most appropriate action to take. From setting traps/placing bait stations to get rid of a current infestation of rodents and/or monitor the activity, to placing glue boards for insect monitoring in a controlled area such as a customer’s garage.

4.Action: After a thorough inspection to identify the target pest, putting in place all the preventative measures, and monitoring the situation to be able to find the best appropriate treatment method, we then take action with a treatment (spray for insect infestation) or trapping program (set traps for rodent infestation)

5.Evaluate: It is our duty to ensure your results are satisfactory. We provide expectations customers should have with our treatments and we also follow up with one-time services to see if their problem was resolved. We also periodically check in with our recurring customers to ensure they are happy year-round!

BY webmaster

Like many entrepreneurs at this time of year, I’ve been spending a good amount of time reflecting on this last year’s progress and thinking about what I’d like to achieve in the coming year. Although I’ve never been one for resolutions (too restrictive and unpleasant), I love making lists of goals. They often include a blend of personal and professional hopes and ambitions and have been helpful in clarifying my priorities for the year ahead.

Health Hazards Posed by Rodents

BY webmaster

It’s not uncommon, especially during the winter months, to have an unpleasant encounter with a rodent who has made its way into a home uninvited. What many people do not realize, however, is that these pests can be much more than a nuisance. Rodents, such as rats, mice, prairie dogs and rabbits, are associated with a number of health risks. In fact, rats and mice are known to spread more than 35 diseases. These diseases can be spread to humans directly, through handling of live or dead rodents, through contact with rodent feces, urine, or saliva, and through rodent bites. Diseases carried by rodents can also be spread to humans indirectly, through fleas, ticks, or mites that have fed on an infected rodent.
