Housekeeping and Integrated Pest Management (IPM)

Hello again from the Triple A HQ Pest Control Philippines!

We've been quite busy in the past few months, hence the delay since our last post. We've been working with several new clients, and most of them were unfamiliar with how IPM worked. IPM stands for integrated pest management, and it's one of the core principles of our business. More importantly, IPM is how clients and service providers work together in ensuring an eco-friendly pest-free environment, and with that thought in mind...

Integrated Pest Management 101
IPM is primarily a program focused on eco-friendly practices for pest control. While this doesn't mean the program is completely chemical-free, it does aim to minimize use of pesticides or gradually eliminate use of it even, if possible.

A comprehensive IPM program is usually made up of various methods for pest management, such as:
Finding out what makes your property a desirable habitat for pests - and getting rid of those elements
Putting up entry barriers or removing access points for pests.

Conventional methods such as the use of application of pesticides are typically the first action taken, but with IPM, what we truly want to achieve is strategically eliminating the need for any kind of chemical application at all.

Housekeeping Practices 
When speaking with clients, we always emphasize the need for us to work together in combating the spread of infestation. In terms of housekeeping (a little-known component of IPM), for instance, we inspect a client's property and identify which areas new housekeeping practices may be introduced.
Frequency of cleaning and waste disposal

Eliminating clutter
Proper storage of food to prevent pests from accessing them

The above practices are just examples, of course, but what we can say with absolute certainty is that changing how you view housekeeping can go a long way in discouraging pests from making a home at your place.
