Magic Exterminating's Integrated Pest Management Program
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation defines Integrated pest management (IPM) as a systematic approach to managing pests that focuses on long-term prevention or suppression with minimal impact on human health, the environment, and non-target organisms. IPM incorporates all reasonable measures to prevent pest problems by properly identifying pests, monitoring population dynamics, and utilizing cultural, physical, biological, or chemical pest population control methods to reduce pests to acceptable levels.
Magic Pest Management offers an extensive range of services designed to have maximum impact on pests and minimal impact on you, your family, and the environment.
The steps involved in our IPM approach are as follows:
- Identify the pest by monitoring for it
We can establish the population density of the pest, current state of life cycle, and with regular visits, overall condition of the structure involved
Determine how the pest enters the structure, when the time to take action is, and what level of action is appropriate for removal
Removing pets for basic needs - water, food, harborage, and temperature, along with practicing pest sanitation practices will help prevent further infestation
- Plan of Action
Preparing the structure for application of pesticides when deemed necessary, and documenting all usage
- Monitoring and Re-Evaluation
Determining how successfully the plan worked, revising the plan of action, and planning for the future
In this process, each location needs to be inspected prior to implementing a control method. The same size structure may have different needs due to the occupants within the structure, condition of the structure or age.
Magic's IPM programs can be carried out on a monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly service depending on your industry standards and personal requirements. Our technicians are trained to handle most situations and are supported with Service Managers and a Board Certified Entomologist to guide them.
