What is “IPM”?
Integrated Pest Management or “IPM” can be defined as a strategy put together to anticipate and prevent pests from reaching damaging numbers by using all suitable tactics. These tactics include using natural enemies, pest-resistant plants, cultural and mechanical controls, and the wise use of pesticides. For Savior, Integrated Pest Management means thinking outside of the box for control methods that can be used to decrease the amount of pesticide used for a particular pest problem.
If you are having a problem with wildlife in your attic, there are a few different options to control these pests. Exclusion is one of the best methods to attack a particular pest problem because proper exclusion will not only address the present problem but will also prevent you from having the same problem again in the future. Our two-step exclusion process ensures that not only is the pest gone before the holes are closed up, but also that they will not return later. From mice to raccoons, if they can get in, we can get them out.
While it is nearly impossible to close every possible entrance big enough for insects to get in, a thorough insect exclusion service can significantly cut down the number of insects getting into your home or business. This means we can also significantly cut down the amount of pesticides needed to maintain insect control. Insect exclusion consists of sealing weep holes, gaps, and cracks. It might also be necessary to install new door sweeps if the current ones are worn and old.
