Integrated Pest Management

Safely Preventing and Controlling Household Pests

Checking foundation

At Go-Forth, we handle pest management from a holistic perspective. We believe that by utilizing a number of strategies - including inspection, monitoring, and pest exclusion - we can help keep unwanted pests at bay with minimal reliance on pesticides. IPM is used in all of our general pest control services. When we do prescribe pesticides and baits as part of our Integrated Pest Management approach, we take the least toxic route first.  For those interested in a more natural method of control, we also offer organic pest prevention services.

What is IPM?

Perimeter Treatment

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a form of pest control that is rapidly gaining popularity. The method involves simple and effective steps that can be taken by both the homeowner and the pest control provider to help prevent or eliminate common pests like cockroaches, mice, and rats. In addition, it is one of the safest methods of pest control for both people and the environment.

Integrated Pest Management relies on common sense tactics, such as:

  • Denying pests access to food, water, shelter, and easy entrance into the home.
  • Using safter alternatives to pesticides, such as baits, traps, and powders (like borate).
  • Applying pesticides only as needed, and using the least hazardous kinds available.

One IPM method that Go-Forth often incorporates into an integrated pest control system is the Glue Board, or 'pest monitoring device' as it is sometimes called. Glue Board monitoring devices can be placed around home entrances and water sources, such as plumbing fixtures. This method is perfect for identifying the origin of the pest problem and keeping pests from entering the home without the use of chemicals.
