Spring is here! The grass is getting greener and the cherry blossoms are coming out. Maryland is beautiful this time of year, and we'd like to keep it that way.
At Pest Czar, we are green all year long. What do we mean by that? We practice a green form of pest control called Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which is a common sense approach to pest control. While pesticides are a necessary tool in the IPM Program, we only use the most environmentally safe products in responsible quantities applied carefully to the necessary areas, which helps keep chemicals and damaging effects to a minimum. The goals of our IPM Program are to:
With IPM, we identify the causes of infestation and monitor our customers' properties so we know our methods are working. We are not a “spray and run” company, that may ignore pesticide labels and over-apply products in your living areas, gardens and structures. Improper pesticide application is not only damaging to the environment, but is also ineffective and illegal. We prefer using our knowledge, experience and care to fight pests, rather than risk the health of our customers and environment. We carefully examine the environment and context of the problem so we can eliminate the reason for the infestation. Often times pest problems can be solved by correcting sanitation issues or blocking entry points for invaders with minimal use of pesticides. We communicate our findings and suggestions with customers so they can avoid long term problems with pests.
So, enjoy the season, Maryland! With the warmer weather, you will be sure to notice more pests, especially ants, wasps, and roaches. If you are already having pest problems, feel free to give us a call or ask a question below!
