Our pest control program is designed with you and your family’s well-being in mind. ABC’s approach to handling your uninvited guests aligns with the principles of integrated pest management (IPM). IPM is an effective methodology accepted by many institutions, one of them being the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
IPM places a special focus on taking preventive measures, applying in-depth knowledge of pest behavior to address problems and creating an environment less favorable for pests to thrive. Chemical interventions are always used as a last and final resort.
Abiding by IPM means that our inspectors might recommend leaving your birdbath empty to prevent it from becoming a haven for mosquito larvae. In other cases, reducing dense vegetation, keeping grass trimmed and removing firewood or compost bins can limit the number of hiding spaces for critters or even larger types of wildlife to seek shelter. ABC technicians may also suggest making improvements to your irrigation system for the sake of preventing water from pooling in your yard, which can help you avoid yard fungus and the emergence of other pests.
When absolutely necessary, we can and do use chemically-based products that have been specially formulated for use in residential environments and which in turn minimize the impact on your pets, children and the surrounding ecosystem.
You can rest assured knowing our licensed applicators are specially trained to use these regulated products in the lowest concentration possible and in small amounts to targeted areas.
As a family-owned and operated business, ABC has a full line of products which created to protect our customers and their families from the significant risks that these pests pose to your well-being.
