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

IPM is approaching the problem from all angles by incorporating the necessary disciplines or knowledge to rectify pest problems without the use of chemicals that are man-made and/or harmful to a person's health or to the environment.

How are pest problems identified?

Most of our inspections are conducted by visual examination and use of olfactory senses. History of the problem is discussed with the client before work begins. Testing is a last resort and only necessary in litigation or if mold source is undiscoverable.

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

RMS provides recommendations for prevention such as the use of dehumidifier, cleanup of water intrustion within 24-48 hours, removal of nutrient souces for fungi and bacteria such as drywall, and careful watch for signs of growth or water leak. Remediation typically includes removing growth, identifying and/or correcting source of problem, HEPA vacuuming and non-chlorine bleach/water solution. Products for encapsulating material and only recommended if growth covered extensive areas and/or costs are prohibitive for removal. Products are certified through EPA, but are only used as a last resort.
