Pest-man.com Ltd offers a complete service for your business. This service is based
on Integrated Pest Management or IPM ideals.
IPM is far better for the environment than using pesticides alone. It is also more
effective. Using IPM avoids the problems of pest resistance which build up when large
quantities of chemicals are used regularly.
By using IPM with our customers, less staff time is taken up by spraying pesticides
(an uncomfortable job, due to all the protective clothing that must be worn).
IPM is a complex method that requires detailed information and observation. Monitoring
pest populations is crucial, so that they can be detected before they do too much
damage. Our trained staff regularly monitor your working environment and place sticky
traps (pieces of cardboard or plastic coated with a tacky resin) attract and trap
insects, so that staff can easily see which species are present.
To use biological control effectively, a detailed understanding of the biology of
the beneficial and pest organisms is needed. Knowing the conditions that discourage
the pests will help to balance the odds in favour of a safer area for our customers.
