Integrated Pest Management ( IPM )

What is IPM?


We, as a society,  have become increasingly sensitive to our environment; less willing to accept  health risks, even very small ones, from contaminants in the food we eat, the  water we drink, the air we breathe or in the buildings we occupy.

These concerns are changing the  way we live. Pest control, too, is changing  with the times. What was common and accepted practice a decade ago is no longer  seen as acceptable to many people. A new approach to pest control has evolved.  It is called integrated pest management or IPM.  IPM is about a joint team effort between you  and Unimar in order to achieve the control of Pest  to the highest possible level. It reduces the risks from  pesticides and improves the quality of pest control.

This  means that  you must understand the  importance ofour role in an IPM System and give full support to any action that  may be required to prevent pest entering and proliferating within your  property. For example:

Integrated  pest management, or IPM, is a system of controlling pests by combining  biological, mechanical, cultural, physical and chemical control methods in a  way the minimizes economic, health and environmental risks.

With Unimar  IPM System, pests are monitored by regular and careful inspections. The  inspections identify pests and the conditions contributing to the pest  problems. Based on the inspection our technician decides what actions are  necessary. Our expertise knowledge of the pest's biology and habits will help  in determining what methods or techniques would best control the pests at the  lowest potential exposure possible.

The most  important part of IPM is implementation. Educating and training the staff about  potential pest problems, their causes and the IPM solutions is one of the very  important and simple tasks of Unimar. Pesticide training and IPM are intimately  linked. Preventing exposure by reducing pesticide use enhances pesticide  safety. Simply having informed individuals whom will spot and report pest  problems will help manage pests. Meeting the ever-changing state and federal  laws, notification requirements, and record keeping is an importing task as  well.

IPM is a  process involving common sense and sound solutions for treating and controlling  pests. These solutions incorporate five basic steps:

  1. Communications

This is an important step to success  of the IPM System with the customer.  It  is an on-going process in the IPM System. Unimar technician will convince you  that IPM will be effective when the programs are given sufficient time to work  and when the conditions that encourage infestation are removed.

To insure  an optimum communication between customer and technician, Unimar has hired  educated technicians with high communication skill and has trained them to use  only scientific and technical communications tools to use when dealing with  customers.

  1. Inspection

Inspections  should be conducted in an order, organized manner and should include all  aspects of the structure, both interior and exterior.  This process is facilitated by the proper  tools carried throughout the structure.
90% of the  inspection, monitoring, and pest management effort should focus on pest areas including: food processing areas (Kitchens, storeroom, dishwashers, machine),  Pool, locker rooms, drainages, garbage rooms, etc. Look for harborage places  and conditions of moisture, heat or darkness which favor infestation.

  1. Tools and Access

Ideally,  inspections should be performed with someone who is familiar with the building  and grounds and who knows the staff and the way things are done. The inspection  involves both looking and asking. Looking for signs of pests and potential pest  problems and asking questions about practices that might affect pest activity.
To perform  an adequate inspection, Unimar technicians use specified tools and items.

  1. Identification of Pests

After  completion of Inspection, the Unimar professionals must identify what pests are  infesting the structure. The proper Identification leads to the effective control  strategy.
In this  regards Unimar has conducted an intelligible training including a wide range of  pest information to allow its technicians to obtain complete scientific  knowledge to have the theoretical and practical approach for identifying any  type of exciting pest.

  1. Application of Pest Management Procedure

In an IPM  System, the application of Pest Management strategies involves Mechanical  control measures, Cultural, Biological and Chemical control measures  appropriate for the Pest Problem.
Mechanical control measures include the  use of Physical methods such as barriers, traps, structural repairs, caulking  cracks and crevices, sealing harborages and holes around the utility lines and  replacing leaky plumbing.
Cultural measures involve  altering the Pest?s environment through  enhanced sanitation and eliminating food, water and harborage (check our  prevention tips).
Biological control  measures involve the use of parasite, predators and materials that alter the  behavior or life cycle of the Pest. (Ex: IGR  for cockroaches, fleas and other insects.
Chemical Controls: The use of  pesticides in a proper manner and in accordance with the label. Examples of a  pesticide application would include applying a dust pesticide into a wall void  to control ants or using baits in a crack to control cockroaches.

  1. Evaluation

Monitoring  is the key method to ensure success of the IPM System. It means that the  accounts are inspected on regular basis by Unimar Technicians or quality  assurance person to determine if pest are present. Evidence of Pest should motivate the Pest Management Professional to  reassess the program, identify areas overlooked and eliminate entry points to enhance program effectiveness. Unimar has set for each used system a specific  monitoring form to make it clear easy to review. For each form, should be attached  a detailed map showing the location of the traps and/or bait stations installed  to control and monitor different type of pest.
