Like Elite Pest Management's standard pest programs, our Eco-Green Plus program is built around Integrated Pest Management – IPM for
short. IPM relies upon non-chemical methods first to prevent and manage
In our Eco-Green Plus program, our company relies more on non-chemical
steps in managing pests. Pests included in our program
include ants, crickets, mice, rats, roaches, silverfish, spiders &
stored product pests.
Steps you can expect to find in our IPM programs are:
- Inspection to find the true cause of a pest problem
- Low-risk, effective tactics to break the cycle of pest habitation, such as:
- Sanitation recommendations
- Exclusion (caulking, sealing)
- Mechanical control (barriers, traps)
- Cultural controls (move woodpiles, eliminate clutter)
- Biological controls (enzymes)
- Targeted, strategic use of products
- Customer education
Elite Pest Management's service begins with a consultation with the prospective
customer, followed by a thorough inspection of the commercial property.
Our technician then develops a plan based on information given by the customers and
gathered during the inspection. These recommendations will include
steps to be taken by the customer, such as correcting a moisture problem resulting from poor
drainage, or managing landscaping adjacent to the building in such a way
that discourages pests.
Our proposal will then list the steps that Elite Pest Management will take in solving or preventing pest problems. Possibilities might
include caulking or sealing pest entry points, the use or traps or glue
boards, door sweeps to prevent rodent entry or the use
of enzymes to clear drains of the material that breed drain flies.
If and when products are needed, our first choice will be
environmentally low impact products such as those containing diatomaceous earth, and products that use plant and tree oils as their
primary active ingredient.
The need for application of any product will be based on thorough inspections.
Our service technicians have extensive training in pest biology and
behavior and the most current methods of control, both non-chemical and
