Integrated Pest Management:
What Is Integrated Pest Management (IPM)?
IPM is an ecosystem-based strategy that focuses on long-term prevention of pests or their
damage through a combination of techniques such as biological control, habitat manipulation,
modification of cultural practices, and use of resistant varieties. Pesticides are used only after
monitoring indicates they are needed according to established guidelines, and treatments are
made with the goal of removing only the target organism. Pest control materials are selected
and applied in a manner that minimizes risks to human health, beneficial and nontarget
organisms, and the environment.
Bug Commander follows the IPM guideline to help serve you better and reduce the risk of non-
target kills and non-needed treatments. What this mean for you is a better control of the pest(s).
If we can take care of the problem without a chemical treatment, we will, and if we feel a
treatment or our services are not needed to control the pest(s) we inform you, which in return
saves you money and time!
