Pest Control for Healthcare Facilities
Healthcare Facilities Commercial Pest ControlÂ
Our B.I.T.E System – Pest Control for Healthcare Facilities
Pest management is a moving target. Pests change and adapt to management techniques. Our technicians are trained through national and state level training courses and are up to date on best practices. We GUARANTEE We will always bring to your house & business the best practices in the industry.
Our aim is to be the leader in technology, science, and the art of pest control, while maintaining integrity to home, family, and the environment. Those best practices include best practices in regard to extermination, best practices with clients, and best practices with protecting families, citizens, other insects, and ecosystems.
INSPECT & LEARN PREMISES
In this process our technicians are looking for the pest or evidence of the pest. The potential ecosystem, environment factors, and unique plants, shades, water sources and food sources that exist. When looking at the turf and ornamentals, weâ€™re looking for stress & damage. This process includes identification of damage, the pest, & frass produced by the pest.
Sometimes itâ€™s a game of timing. Catching them in the act makes the monitoring process much more precise. Other devices and tools aid us in identifying the pest when the timing is off. And recording and record-keeping is critical. We document what, when, where so that we can monitor next year or when similar conditions are met some time in the future.
There are thresholds that must be considered when making a decision to treat such as: damage threshold, insect abundance threshold, and even an aesthetic threshold. Basically, at what threshold of damage to plants, trees, and property or amount of insect infestation is beyond an acceptable level and runs the risk of causing irreversible damage.
Defining damage thresholds, diagnosing, & treating ornamental ecosystem injury bears an additional level of complexity in urban landscapes as aesthetic value can be lost very quickly with even a small insect population.
The questions that must be asked after treatment strategy is initiated. How well did that management strategy work? How was the environment affected and responding? Have we affected insect that were outside the treatment scope? Through continued evaluation the approach to pest treatment is altered if needed. All of these questions must be evaluated in the process of treatment: Are pests dying? Is there still a presence of beneficial pests? Are there fewer pests? Are plants healthier? Is our current approach yielding better results than previous treatments?
Managing pests in homes & landscapes is complex, difficult, and dynamic. There are many connected pieces in these ecosystems that must be monitored and managed. Our responsibility to be environmentally conscious by evolving our approach and chemical use is a responsibility we bare with great pride. It is our goal to be the best at pest management & extermination and the best at being in front of the curve with environmental responsibility.
