Why We Are Different
The Difference between Pest Control and Integrated Pest Management
There are literally thousands of companies in Australia, which consider themselves in the Pest Control Business, by nature of a state licence. To our Knowledge Your Termites Gone is one of a few effective Integrated Pest Management Providers.
“Integrated Pest Management is more than words!”
Pest Control is the application of Pesticides, whether needed or not, used to control pests on a periodic eradication basis within practical limits for general pest infestation in and around a premise.
Integrated Pest Management is the direct application of safer methods of pesticide usage in harbourage areas, cracks and crevice, voids, micro cracks etc. While inspecting for pest problems and selecting a solution to such.
Our trained, professional service technicians closely monitor the Conditions, Avenues and Sources which might allow pests back into the premises, and we take corrective action before a problem develops.
By using highly affective baits, gels, treatments and by promoting simple yet effective sanitation, housekeeping and maintenance practice, we can eliminate pests from taking up residence in a building or property.
How we do it better using Structural Integrated Pest Management
Structural Integrated Pest Management programs differ from Integrated Pest Management programs in other pest management industries in four main ways.
- Prevention of pest infestations is very effective and should be the main objective of the pest management program;
- Unlike outdoor pests, eradication of certain structure invading pests with a specific area (such as a warehouse or food processing plant) is a realistic goal because the pests are inside specific boundaries;
- A working knowledge of building design especially plumbing, electrical and ventilation systems is essential;
- Communication with clients is particularly important for establishing tolerances and for educating clients about the integrated pest management approach.
Treatments are based on individual sites and situations and the costumers needs.
We select a treatment that is
- Least hazardous to human health;
- Least damaging to the environment;
- Effective at controlling the target pest;
- Has minimal impacts to non – target organisms;
- Conducted out of building use patterns;
- Within regulatory requirements or bylaws that apply;
- Within available resources.
