Integrated Pest Management | Long Term Solutions

Integrated pest management is a process or method that is used to give long term results in pest management.

It is a strategy that describes all the best methods there is whether traditional or even modern to try and find a long lasting solution for dealing with pests. This method also looks at the environment looking for ways that are less harmful to the environment and that are quite sustainable. Scientists over time have discovered that we are slowly destroying our environment because of the chemicals that we use either in the manufacturing industry but also critically in our households. One of the areas that use these chemicals is when we are trying to destroy the pests using chemicals. Most of these chemicals are harmful to the environment and release dangerous carbon molecules and also some harmful metals like lead.


Long Term Results Take Careful Planning

It is true that pests are so annoying, and you would like to exterminate them immediately and as first as you can. What is even more annoying is the fact that some keep on coming back even after you have tried all means, so people tend to look for the harshest chemical substances. But due to some form of ignorance or lack of knowledge they do not know that they are contributing to the destruction of the environment.

That is where integrated pest management comes in and some of the methods that are used are like changes in cultural behaviors, biological control, education, modification of the habitat and lastly trying to use the hazardous chemicals and pesticides. This methodology follows three principles at the core, and these are: the environment where it seeks to sustain the environment and also looks if the method affects other organisms in the system. It also looks at how effective the method will work. You want results in the methods that you want to use. Last it looks at the economic aspect of the method. It asks the question how much will it cost for you to use the method successfully?


Preparation is Followed by Swift Action

The basic of this method is to assess the infestation of the pests correctly and also try to predict the future of those infestations. If we deal with them now, will we still encounter the same problem next season? Therefore, the process will strive to research on the pest and try to find out the behaviors of these pests and the effectiveness of the method to change them. It also looks at what else will be affected if we totally exterminate these pests. The ability to identify the behavior is critical to this process.
