The movement towards “green” in the field of pest control involves the use of an integrated approach to remove, control and prevent pest problems. This approach balances prevention – an important part of Green IPM™, changing unsafe and wrong sanitation habits, client awareness and a solid collaborative partnership in addition to the judicious use of pesticides, when they are deemed necessary.
GREEN IPM™ WORKS AROUND THE FOLLOWING MAIN AXES:
A Management buy-in
An imperative step for the successful implementation of the Green IPM™ and the Global Green standards.
Client contribution starts with the importance of agreeing on a pest threshold and understanding the scope of a Green IPM™ plan; creating and implementing processes for general site maintenance, proper cleaning systems, waste management and other aspects of facility management.
A solid pest prevention maintenance process to
- Monitor and identify pest problem areas,
- Advise on sanitary measures,
- Advise on pest proofing techniques,
- Manage environmental factors to reduce pest infestation
A Tailor-made Integrated Pest Management protocol is embedded into Green IPM™ procedures and plans
Through the careful use of selected natural repellents and insecticides, in addition to mechanical and physical control. This is a fundamental step to shifting towards an environmentally conscious approach and agreeing on the pests thresholds in different locations.
