Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a simple concept, but often difficult to implement. Based on the principles of the IPM Triangle below, pests are attracted to a location based on the opportunity available, i.e food or shelter.
How pests are monitored is a key component towards early identification, the earlier they are found the easier they can be to control.
Controlling pests is not about the use of pesticides - in practice pests have either adapted their bodies to become resistant to chemicals, i.e rats, or avoid surfaces that have been sprayed, i.e BedBugs. Non-lethal; non-chemical, is the primary route to long-term sucess for a pest free environment. Not the easiest of options or necessarily the cheapest - but certainly the best.
