Our Green Approach- Green Clover IPM
Colony’s Green Clover Integrated Pest Management Program, or Green Clover IPM, is an approach to pest control that uses regular monitoring to determine if and when treatments are needed. It employs physical, mechanical, cultural, biological, and educational tactics to keep pest numbers low enough to prevent damage and/or annoyance. By correcting the conditions that lead to pest problems and the judicious use of approved pesticides, only when necessary, Colony’s Green Clover IPM (SM) provides an effective and environmentally friendly Pest Management Program.
How it Works
Our program consists of regular inspection to identify the pest(s) and the source of infestation. We will control any infestation with the following, short term solutions:
- Mechanical controls
- Physical controls
- Biological controls
- Chemical pesticides (only as a last resort)
Through the use of engineering, maintenance, sanitation methods and education we will reduce and/or eliminate the cause of any infestation. These methods are long-term solutions.
Colony Pest Management, Inc. will provide a detailed maintenance program that will include detailed inspections, monitoring through glue traps, sanitation recommendations and the education of the staff to control pests by the reduction of their food, water sources, shelter (harborage) and points of entry.
