Integrated Pest Management (IPM)

Pest problems in commercial facilities often require a unique approach. Western Exterminator works with each facility to develop a customized pest management plan that reduces or eliminates infestations and prevents future problems. Our expert pest control team provides industry-leading services to meet compliance and auditing requirements, protect valuable equipment and machinery, and safeguard brand reputation.

IPM is an integrated, problem-solving process that combines environmental data, pest biology, and life cycle information with available pest control methods to manage pest damage in ways that minimize economic costs and risks to people and the environment. It uses prevention and non-chemical techniques before resorting to pesticides and prioritizes the least toxic pesticides. Whether in your home or a complex commercial property, our experts use IPM principles of Exclusion, Restriction, and Monitoring to create a pest-free environment that is continually evaluated.

The first step of any IPM program is to identify the specific pest and its damaging activities. We do this through careful assessment of the pest, its habitat, and its natural enemies, as well as an evaluation of the current environmental conditions that attract it to a site. We also look at how the pest is spreading, which can be done with several different tools and methods.

After establishing the problem and identifying the specific pest, IPM programs set action thresholds to determine when pest control actions are needed. This is based on the fact that pests should only be controlled when their damage exceeds an acceptable level. The NIH requires that any pesticide use be recorded, including the product used, its application rate, and the date of treatment. This information is used to evaluate whether the pesticide was effective and whether or not further action is required.

If the monitoring, identification, and action thresholds indicate that pest control is required, the proper pest control method will be chosen and evaluated for both effectiveness and risk. Less risky pest controls, such as pheromones to disrupt mating and trapping for rodents, are used before more intense, more risky chemical control methods are considered.

Termite Control

Termites are some of the most destructive pests, chewing through wood and causing costly damage to buildings. The best way to protect against this threat is through a proactive approach with regular termite service visits. Your commercial exterminator can provide unobtrusive monitoring stations that will alert you and your team of potential termite activity, providing a chance for early intervention. If your property is prone to termite infestation, your pest control company can offer various treatment options, including fumigation. Fumigation, also known as tenting, is the most intensive type of termite treatment available. This involves enclosing your home in a tent and filling it with fumigant, allowing the gas to penetrate every surface and eradicate the termites. Typically, you will be required to leave your home for 3 days while the gas disperses. Depending on your type of termite and the severity of the infestation, fumigation may or may not be effective.

The most important thing you can do to protect your property from termites is to hire a professional pest control expert. These professionals are trained to find the exact locations of termite colonies, identify the queen, and can help you take preventive measures. They can advise you on how to minimize your risk, such as removing any stacked firewood near your house and keeping trees and stumps away from the foundation of your home. They can also recommend the use of wood treatments that are absorbed into the wood, protecting it from termite attack.

Another way to protect your building against termites is to use soil and barrier treatments. These services involve applying liquid termiticides underneath and around the foundation of your building, creating a protective barrier that prevents termites from tunneling through it to reach the structure. This treatment can be combined with wood treatments or a foam barrier for additional protection.

Termite infestations are a serious concern for many homeowners and business owners in the city. These pests are highly destructive and can cost you thousands of dollars in repair costs. The best way to keep them at bay is to implement preventative pest control services, such as those offered by your local pest control experts.

Rodent Control

Rodents are a common problem for businesses in the food service, retail, and hospitality industries. They are capable of infiltrating a business through the smallest gaps and openings and can cause significant damage to property and equipment. Additionally, they may carry and transmit diseases that pose a threat to health and safety. Rodents are also known to gnaw on wires, which can result in costly electrical repairs or fires.

A pest infestation can have a significant negative impact on your business’s reputation and customer base. Moreover, it can lead to fines from state and federal inspection agencies, as well as costly damage to your business’s facilities and products. Some companies offer commercial pest control services that are designed to protect your business from these harmful pests.

We offer comprehensive rodent control services that include inspections, monitoring, and trapping. Our services are based on scientifically proven methods that have been tested and backed by research. We use a variety of trapping methods and baits to target the specific species infesting your business. We also work to reduce the conditions that are conducive to rodent infestations, such as excessive debris and clutter around the building, stagnant water, and unkempt landscaping.

Oftentimes, signs of a rodent infestation are hard to detect. However, if you notice any of the following indicators in your business, it’s important to take action immediately:

Gnaw Marks

You may find gnaw marks on wires, furniture, and walls. These marks are usually lighter in color and become darker as the mice chew them.

Droppings

You will often find rodent droppings in hidden areas like behind walls and in closets.

Nesting

Rodents build secluded nests from shredded paper, fabric, and other fibrous materials.

Urine and Fecal Stains

Rodents leave behind a trail of urination and defecation as they search for food, shelter, and mates.

If you suspect a rodent infestation, call us to schedule an inspection. Our technicians will identify entry points, check for evidence of infestation, and assess the level of damage caused by the rodents. We will then develop a comprehensive plan that includes trapping, restriction, and treatment. Our pest control services are effective, discreet, and customized to meet the unique needs of your business.

Commercial Pest Control Services

Whether you operate a restaurant, daycare center, hotel, or food processing plant, pests like rodents, birds, fleas, cockroaches and flies pose serious health and safety risks to your business and its customers. Even small infestations can damage your reputation, result in costly fines from state or federal inspection agencies, and may lead to a loss of revenue, closure, and legal action.

Commercial businesses have unique needs that require a tailored pest control plan. Your commercial property’s size, layout, and proximity to surrounding environments can all impact the type of pests that are attracted to it. A commercial pest control company will understand these factors and use their knowledge to develop a pest management program that works for your business.

Office buildings are notorious for harboring pests, such as flies, fleas, and rodents, due to the high volume of people coming and going throughout the workday. Infestations can disrupt productivity, create unwelcome distractions, and negatively impact employee morale. Pestech’s comprehensive pest control services can eliminate infestations quickly and effectively to prevent costly production interruptions and keep your workplace pest-free.

The sanitary environment of healthcare facilities, including hospitals, long-term care, and emergency medical care centers, must be maintained at the highest level to protect the well-being of patients. Infestations by fleas, roaches, flies, and rodents can threaten the safety of these vulnerable individuals through the transmission of disease and the contamination of equipment and supplies. Commercial pest control services for these types of businesses must take into account their hygienic requirements and focus on eliminating pests before they become a problem.

Condominiums, apartment complexes, and other multi-family residential environments can be susceptible to a variety of pests, such as flies, cockroaches, rodents, and wasps. These pests are known to compromise the integrity of the structure, damage furniture, and electrical wiring, and lead to a host of health and safety concerns for tenants. A commercial pest control company can help mitigate these issues by conducting regular inspections of your building and its surroundings, using baits and traps to remove existing pests, and preventing them from returning through preventative measures.
