What Is IPM?
By definition, IPM is an ecosystem-based process that places an emphasis on long-term prevention of pests. IPM incorporates biological control, habitat manipulation and other factors to keep insects, rodents and other pests out of a facility. At Horizon, we employ a three-step IPM process to safeguard your business from unwanted guests.
- Inspection – Routine inspections of indoor and outdoor areas help determine if pests are present. They also help pinpoint areas with conditions that are favorable to pest infestations.
- Identification – Following an inspection, our trained and licensed professionals will work to identify the type or species of pest present. Since control methods vary by pest, this step is crucial to devising a successful pest management plan.
- Treatment – Depending on the pest(s) present, a variety of treatment methods will be employed to eradicate the problem. This includes managing the environment while eliminating sources of food and water and pest shelter.
