JP McHale Pest Management, Inc. is a leading innovator in the latest "ecologically sensitive" pest management techniques, centering on the concept of Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Our trained professionals are regularly schooled in residential and commercial pest control, lawn care, and tree and turf applications. We perform meticulous, thorough inspections, and can customize an IPM program with your needs in mind. Our staff includes two entomologists, a plant pathologist and an environmental scientist. Our employees enjoy structured, in house training that reflects our superior field service. Our service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

What is your definition of Integrated Pest Management (IPM)?

IPM is a strategy of keeping pest population levels below predetermined thresholds through biological, cultural, and physical means, utilizing the least toxic chemical methods as well.

Is pest management performed on a specific schedule?

90% of our residential service is performed as an on-call basis. We offer a maintenance program that gives the customer three exterior perimeter inspections and applications, and unlimited interior applications upon request.

How are pest problems identified?

Pest problems are identified by our trained and licensed applicators. If there are insects that cannot be identified in the field, they are brought in-house and identified by our on staff Board Certified Entomologist.

What practices do you use to prevent and/or control pests?

We use monitors, mechanical traps, exclusion, education and pesticides whenever necessary to prevent or control pests. We use insect growth regulators to control developing stages of various insects.

Do you use biological controls?

Yes, we also use bacterial and fungicidal materials to kill certain insect stages.

Do you use borates?

Yes, we use many borate-based products for the control of wood-boring beetles and crawling insects.

Do you use synthetic chemicals?

Yes, we use synthetic chemicals from the pyrethroid and carbamate families. Also Sentricon (hexaflumuron), Merit (imidaclorpid), Ultracide (permethrin) and Roundup (glyphosate).

What are the top 10 pesticides you use/sell/recommend?

We use materials on an interchangeable basis that fall into the categories of borates, insect growth regulators, pyrethroids, synthetic pyrethroids, and carbamates.

If pesticides are used, how much are used per year of each?

Our methods and amounts vary. We apply these materials by means of hand-operated equipment and pump sprayers.

Does your company perform habitat modification?

Yes. Primarily through exclusion. We use wire, copper mesh, and insulating foam. We offer suggestions to customers on a larger scale, but do not participate in the work if it involves the skills of trained artisans such as masons or carpenters.

Do you use any physical or mechanical controls?

We use physical and mechanical controls. For example, snap traps, live catch traps, glue boards, screens, caulk and foam.
