What’s the Difference of Green Pest Control?
Green pest control is all about integrated pest management or simply IPM which is an effective way to get rid of pests. Pest control company is following IPM prevention, education and client awareness as well as building inspections which are integral for a successful pest control.
The process for IPM starts in being able to know how and why the pest has entered the premises. Experts who are in this field do know the lifecycle of pests and at the same time, their preferred nesting location. As a result, they’re capable of using innovative and pest prevention techniques that are least hazardous to properties, plant life, pets and most importantly, to people.
IPM is using common sense practices in line with eco-friendly chemicals. To give you example, instead of using harmful chemicals in avoiding the return of pests, pest control exterminators may install preventative materials similar to door screens and new windows, fresh caulking, new door sweeps and many more. As alternative to harmful chemicals, professionals may consider installing solar powered repellants or use traps and study the locations where pests may live.
Basically, green pest control are made using natural and organic ingredients that are good for the environment, hence the name. Not only that, these products are also engineered to be effective and biodegradable as its non-green counterpart.
Green pest management practices are promoting the structure and health of plants as they are providing biologically based alternatives to the typical chemical sprays. Control tactics that are used in IPM are benign thus, it is reducing environmental risks that are usually associated with the conventional pest management like ground water contamination. IPM even helps in reducing the odds for re-infestation while being a cost effective method to get rid of pests.
Whenever green pest control is put into used, rather than spraying multipurpose pesticide over infested property, the IPM exterminators will use a process that sets an action threshold, monitor pests to identify them, avoid its reoccurrence and lastly, make use of proper control methods. When the action threshold is set, the exterminator would then know how big or serious the infestation is, how much danger the pests post and at the same time, be able to determine the kind of action needed at the moment.
As soon as the exterminators started monitoring pests, they will make sure that they’ve identified the type of pests that have infested the property. Proper pest identification will ensure the right types of pesticides to be used but will be avoided as much as possible if it’s not needed necessarily.
