Our latest blog provides an 11 point checklist for business best practices related to pest prevention and equipment maintenance. Read more below.
As we have mentioned in many of our previous blogs, we believe that pest control for your business can only be effective if it’s based firmly on the principles of Integrated pest management (IPM).
Integrated pest management employs a combination of practices including current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests, their behaviour, biology, and their interactions with their environment to eliminate the root cause of a pest infestation. You can read more about it in this blog post. IPM is based on four principles we call ERDM: exclusion, restriction, destruction and monitoring.
