Integrated Pest Management Solutions (IPMS)
We believe that the best way to deal with a pest infestation is by not having one. That’s why we’ve established our 6 Elements to Integrated Pest Management Solutions. With our IPMS, you get a comprehensive program that is unique to your business and proactive rather than reactive. We look at your environment and establish a protocol to keep pests away so they cannot damage your products, supplies, building, or reputation.
Greenshield Pest Control 6 Elements to Integrated Pest Management Solutions
Inspection – A comprehensive inspection and an assessment are completed at every facility to identify signs of current and potential pest activity. These signs include sanitation issues, harbourage areas, entry points, food/ water sources, and structural deficiencies. All results of inspection are reviewed with clients in detail and action plans are then developed.
Prevention & Education -The common sense aspect of pest management is that avoiding a pest infestation is always better than having to control an established pest presence. Prevention is an integral part of any IPMS and Greenshield Pest Control develops its IPMSs with this in mind. Educating clients and their teams is a specialty of Greenshield Pest Control. Prevention is made easier by offering training and communication sessions to our clients. Prevention may include standard baits and traps, affecting your supply chain before your inputs come to your facility, or even a sanitation program for your facility.
Identification – You, your employees, and your customers should submit pest reports to Greenshield Pest Control, giving the location and time of any sighting. This will help them
prevent pest infestation and control or remove any existing pests. Greenshield Pest Control technicians may also interview key employees.
Analysis & Threshold – After the detailed inspection, we will conduct a facility layout analysis, noting all current and potential problem areas. The threshold is established mutually by the Greenshield Pest Control technician and client. A threshold is the point at which pest populations or environmental conditions require action to be taken. Factors such as the health and safety of employees or customers, the potential damage caused by pests, or future liabilities to your employees, guests, and the environment are used to develop thresholds. These levels are then used as the basis of future communications and actions. A good plan always starts with a strong base.
Treatment Section – The last line of defense. Once identification and thresholds indicate that pest control is required, all methods of control are evaluated to ensure that safe, effective treatments are provided. Greenshield Pest Control’s team of certified technicians are prepared with the latest techniques and technology in controlling pests which meet all Pest Management Program standards, to expertly treat the affected areas, using eco-friendly products wherever possible. Any wildlife pests will be removed safely and humanely. Pesticides will only be used when necessary to achieve acceptable levels of pest control, with the least possible harm to humans, other animals, and the environment.
Monitoring – IPMSs monitor for early pest signs and develop appropriate actions for control. Pest identification is key to understanding the overall problem and controls. Non-chemical methods of control are the first choice for any IPMS to reduce the risk of damage and the only way to know which method to use is to fully understand what you are dealing with.
Documentation – A critical step that is easy to be lost in any pest management program, documenting and communicating inspection findings and control methods. Greenshield Pest Control has developed bullet-proof methods to record and review all aspects of the IPMS. With the proper feedback, our clients meet their internal and external requirements and can make proper decisions.
IPMS work properly when they’re constantly monitored and updated. Pests can become immune to certain methods of exclusion or migrate to new locations within your facility. It is important that we establish a plan that is rigid enough to work consistently, but dynamic enough to respond to changes in your environment.
