No one likes having pests in their home. Creepy crawlies of all types—ants, bed bugs, fleas and ticks, or even cockroaches—can be more than a nuisance. Insects and rodents can spread disease, contaminate food, and destroy the foundation of your home. Your best bet is to find some way of controlling pest populations before they get out of hand.
So, you’re convinced. You understand the need to eliminate the bed bugs, ants, rodents, cockroaches, stick bugs, and ticks from your home and yard. But, how do you do this without using the harsh chemicals and putting your family’s and the Earth health at risk? That is where integrated pest management or IPM enters the picture.
IPM can get extremely detailed, but the simple definition is that is it a set of practices that uses “natural” methods—such as habitat manipulation, biological control, modification of cultural practices, and the use of resistant varieties—to limit or reduce pest populations. The ultimate goal of using IPM is to reduce the amount of chemical pesticides that are used in pest management.
Many of the practices that are used in IPM stay the same no matter what pest is being controlled, but there are also some species-specific strategies to keep in mind. Here are a few IPM safe strategies to use for some of the most common household pests.
Termite control always begins with a termite inspection. If your home has termites, you need to begin termite pest control. IPM for termites focuses on building or installing non-cellulose building materials and using termite barriers in your home. This should stop the termites before they even get into your home.
As you probably already know, mosquito control is extremely important for your long-term health. Mosquitoes can carry a large number of diseases. The best non-chemical ways to exterminate mosquitoes is to remove all standing water in your yard and around your home. Emptying standing water removes the source of mosquitoes breeding and hatching, thus making it harder for them to move into your yard.
You can use IPM to aid in your bed bug extermination through DIY methods such as drying all bed bug infested materials at a high temperature for thirty minutes. For items that do not fit in the dryer, you can heat the entire room to 120-degrees Fahrenheit for ninety minutes to kill all bed bug eggs. Or, you can call bed bug extermination services that specialize pest control treatments to take care of the problem for you.
