Advantage of Green Pest Control
Some say that green pest control is an effective way of exterminating pest but in reality, it is focused on integrated pest management or simply IPM. Pest control company follows IPM prevention, education and client awareness as well as building inspections which are part of successful pest control.
The process for IPM starts in being able to know how and why the pest has entered the premises. Professionals working in this field are well aware of the pest’s lifecycle as well as their preferred nesting location. Because of that, they have the ability to use innovative and pest prevention techniques that are also least hazardous to properties, pets, plant life and to people.
IPM is using common sense practices in line with eco-friendly chemicals. So to give you an example, rather than using harmful chemicals to avoid the return of pests, pest control exterminators might install preventative materials similar to door screens and new windows, fresh caulking, new door sweeps and a lot more. Professionals might set up traps as well in learning the different areas that a pest might live or at times, install solar powered repellants to be used as alternative to harmful chemicals.
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 provide biologically based alternatives to the typical chemical sprays which then promotes the health and even structure of plants. The control tactics that are being used in IPM are benign and with this in mind, it helps in reducing environmental risks that are normally associated with pest management we used to know including ground water contamination. IPM even helps in reducing the odds for re-infestation while being a cost effective method to get rid of pests.
So when green pest control is used, instead of spraying multipurpose pesticide over the infested property, IPM exterminators are using a process that is setting an action threshold, monitoring pests to be able to identify them, preventing its reoccurrence and making use of proper control methods. As soon as the action threshold is finally set, this allows the pest exterminator to find out severity of the infestation is, how much danger the pests brings and determine at the same time the kind of action needed at the moment.
When exterminators monitor pests, they make it a point that they’ve correctly identified the pests. 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.
