Integrated Pest Management (IPM)

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interactions with the environment. This information, in combination with available pest control methods, is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment. IPM programs take advantage of all pest management options possible- including, but not limited to, the judicious use of pesticides.

Understanding pest needs is essential to implementing IPM effectively. Pests seek habits that provide basic needs such as air, moisture, food, and shelter. Pest populations can be prevented or controlled by creating inhospitable environments, by removing some of the basic elements pests need to survive, or by simply blocking their access into buildings. Pests may also be managed by other methods such as traps, vacuums, or pesticides. An understanding of what pests need in order to survive is essential before action is taken.

Structural and landscape pests can pose significant problems to people, property, and the environment. Pesticides can also pose risks to people, property, and the environment. It is therefore the policy of this location to incorporate Integrated Pest Management IPM procedures for control of structural and landscape pests.

IPM procedures will determine when to control pests and whether to use mechanical, physical, chemical, cultural, or biological means. IPM practitioners depend on current, comprehensive information on the pest and its environment and the best available pest control methods. Applying IPM principles prevents unacceptable levels of pest activity and damage by the most economical means and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment.

Environmental Pest Management (EPM)

At GreenLeaf we strive to be a catalyst force in leading the traditional pest control industry into a more environmentally friendly approach. With that in mind we have created a service called Environmental Pest Management (EPM). EPM is an environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that applies a combination of Common Sense Practices and Integrated Pest Management methods. EPM uses up to date, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests, their habitats and interactions with the environment. This information is used to manage pests and their damage by the most economical means and with the least possible hazard to people, pets, property and the environment.

To implement a successful EPM program it is essential to understand the pests’ needs. Pests seek habitats that provide basic needs such as air, moisture, food and shelter. Pest populations can be prevented or controlled by creating inhospitable environments, by removing some of the basic elements pests need to survive, or by blocking their access into structures. Pests may be managed by other methods such as traps, vacuums, or organic and eco-friendly products. GreenLeaf will become your partner and educator on maintenance and sanitation opportunities that will minimize the need for product applications.
