A doctorate level Entomologist was added to the team to guide the company's commitment to Integrated Pest Management (IPM).
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is often referred to as Modern Pest Control because it takes a more comprehensive, science based, and eco-friendly approach to eliminating unwanted pests than traditional pest control. Traditionally, pest control firms have relied heavily on the use of toxic chemicals and outdated measures to eliminate pests. IPM is an approach that focuses simultaneously on improving sanitation: eliminating food and water where it doesn't belong, reducing clutter, and sealing up gaps and crevices that provide access or shelter for pests. Environment Plus Pest Control's IPM process can be thought of as a shield against pests, rather than as a reaction to them after they've already become established.About Environment Plus Pest Control, LLC:Founded in 1986, Environment Plus Pest Control is a full service, eco-friendly pest control firm committed to providing quality services to commercial, institutional, and residential customers.
