What Is Eco-Friendly Pest Control?
Eco-friendly pest control is the practice of using responsible pest control methods. At Jones Bros. Pest Control, Inc., we use the latest techniques in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to solve our clients’ pest problems.
What Is Integrated Pest Management?
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a multi-step approach to providing long-term pest solutions. An IPM program uses a variety of economical pest control methods to provide long-term pest solutions.
We believe that long-term pest control can be solved by using an effective IPM program based on multiple factors. Our IPM programs focus on these elements:
Pest identification. Before we can effectively treat an infestation or pest problem, we identify the pest causing you problems. Proper pest identification is important to prevent ineffective pest prevention strategies. It also prevents the improper use of control methods, such as pesticides that could impact the environment.
Pest monitoring. After we identify your pest, we learn more about them through monitoring. Monitoring allows us to diagnose the severity of your pest problem before we implement any control methods.
Each species has their own unique behaviors. Through monitoring, we can learn how the pests are entering and exiting your home. We can learn where they are congregating or living when they are in your home. In addition, we can identify their food and water sources. Knowing all of these details helps us develop an effective pest prevention plan.
Pest prevention. After we learn more about your pests’ routine and behavior, we can work to prevent them from entering your home. Preventing future pests from coming into your home is necessary for long-term pest prevention. Prevention can include sealing up pest entrances and ridding your home of pest attractants.
For example, if you have an ant infestation, they may be attracted to leftover food crumbs on your kitchen counter or easy-to-reach foods in your pantry. Keeping your kitchen free from crumbs and moving these foods into pest-proof containers would take away their main food source.
When dealing with outdoor pests, pest prevention could include introducing plants into the environment that are pest-resistant or enhancing your yard to invite the pest’s predators into the environment.
Pest control. Our staff carefully considers all pest control methods to effectively eliminate your pest problem. If pesticides are needed, they are applied to minimize exposure to your family and the environment.
Examples of Eco-Friendly Pest Control Solutions
Our eco-friendly pest control options can help you join the pest-free crowd. A couple examples include:
Essential oils. Essential oils can be used as pest repellents. For example, orange oil repels many pests, including ants, cockroaches, mosquitoes and ticks. Peppermint oil is also a common pest repellent. Insects such as ants, beetles, fleas and spiders do not like peppermint. In addition, peppermint can be used for rodent control.
Baits and traps. Depending on your pest, we can use non-toxic baits or traps to lure and capture the insects or animals invading your home. Used with other pest control measures, baits and traps can be an effective way to monitor and control a pest infestation or population.
