Pest Control Services
Pest management technicians have three primary responsibilities: 1, as ambassadors for the industry; 2, public educators; and 3, service providers. The value of the structural pest management industry to the immediate customer as well as to consumers in general is often not communicated. At Bama our technicians are armed with facts and are prepared to communicate to both individuals and groups the vital services that are provided by the pest management industry specifically, the protection of health, property, food, and the environment.
The primary task of the structural pest management industry once was to spray pesticides. During the past decade, however, the industry gradually evolved, shifting to both integrated pest management (IPM) and reduced risk pest management strategies. The processes begin with the identification of pest problems and are followed by the implementation of a comprehensive pest management plan that may involve application of pesticides. Today baseboard spraying is out, and techniques that minimize the use of pesticides, e.g., crack and crevice applications as well as baits, insect growth regulators, and other approaches to pest management have become the norm.
The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) defines IPM as a decision-making process that anticipates and prevents pest activity and infestation by combining several strategies to achieve long term solutions. Components of an IPM program may include proper waste management, structural repair, maintenance, biological and mechanical control techniques, and pesticide application.
The most important objective of the inspection is to determine if there is a pest problem and, when one is found, the solution will depend on the synergy between inspection and identification; one is worthless without the other. A good inspection and correct identification result in knowledge of the pest, its biology and behavior, and solution of the pest problem. Monitoring of pest populations, the logical extension of inspection procedures, is then provided in order to determine areas of pest activity, population size and the success of pest management procedures.
Another important aspect of today’s pest control is customer cooperation. Our technicians are trained to help identify items that need to be addressed by the customer in order to alleviate pests in and around structures.
