Integrated Pest Management Services

At Buggin Out Termite and Pest Control, Inc., we are committed to environmentally friendly pest control services for both residential and commercial areas. Buggin Out knows that, as a environmentally responsible pest management company, it is our duty to protect the environment. We want are families, friends, and customers to be able to enjoy the natural beauty of our world today and in the future. Therefore, Buggin Out uses Integrated Pest Management (IPM). IPM is a sustainable approach to managing pests by combining biological, cultural, physical, and chemical tools in a way that minimizes economic, health, and environmental risks. Buggin Out’s integrated pest management focuses on the 4 tenets of IPM:

  • Thresholds

    At Buggin Out, the first thing is to set thresholds. This is a point at which pest populations or environmental conditions indicate that pest control action must be taken. Seeing a single pest does not always mean control is needed. The level at which the pests become an infestation is a critical to guide future pest control decisions.

  • Identification and Monitoring

    Not all insects, weeds, and other organisms require control as these can actually be beneficial. Buggin Out works to monitor for pests and identify them accurately, so that appropriate control decisions can be made in conjunction with action thresholds. Monitoring and identification ensure that pesticides will only be used when NECESSARY and the correct pesticide will be used.

  • Prevention

    Prevention is the first step in Control. The IPM Program works to manage landscape or indoor space to prevent pests from becoming a threat. We will use various methods depending on the pests to keep them where they belong.

  • Control

    Once monitoring, identification, and action thresholds indicate that pest control is required, and preventive methods are no longer effective or available, Buggin Out will then evaluate the proper control method both for effectiveness and risk. Effective, less risky pest controls are chosen first, including highly targeted chemicals, such as pheromones to disrupt pest mating, or mechanical control, such as trapping or weeding. If further monitoring, identifications, and action thresholds indicate that less risky controls are not working, then additional pest control methods would be employed, such as targeted spraying of pesticides. Broadcast spraying of non-specific pesticides is a last resort.
