Pest Management

Integrated Pest Management Procedures

Delsea Termite and Pest Control follows an Integrated Pest Management Procedure when providing Pest Management. Integrated Pest Management which will be referred to as IPM from now on is defined as controlling pests through sanitation, mechanical exclusion, non-chemical devices and when necessary the use of pesticides. IPM does not mean no pesticides, however if needed natural based products such as boric acid based will be used. Notification will be given when treatments are needed as a last result.

IPM Program:

  1. Regular inspections to determine the presence of pest and conditions conducive to pest infestations.
  2. A clearing station for personnel to report sightings of pest. Delsea will provide a log in which to record sightings and a service technician will check the log on each visit.
  3. Delsea will leave a written report indicating findings of each service visit. Report will list any materials used, amount, percentage, and method of application.
  4. Various monitoring devises will be used. Pheromone traps, glue boards, non-baited rodent traps.
  5. There will be no routine spraying of insecticides.
  6. When necessary to prevent or control insects, any registered bait may be used. Example Drax ant bait, which is a boric acid base. Baits will be placed in cracks and crevices according to label regulations.
  7. Chemical labels and Material Safety Data Sheets will be supplied in log book.
