Pests are apart of everyone’s life in one way or another. Maverick Pest Management’s goal is to administer effective and safe pest control measures. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a leap to the future of pest control. This is a method that looks at all the factors that can be used to manage pest and human relationships.
According to the University of California, IPM is a strategy that focuses on prevention of pests through a combination of techniques such as biological control, habitat manipulation, modification of cultural practices, and the use of chemical controls. Pesticide treatments are made in a manner that minimizes risks to human health, beneficial and non-target organisms, and the environment. Rather than simply eliminating the pests you see right now, using IPM means you’ll look at environmental factors that affect the pest and its ability to thrive. Armed with this information, you can create conditions that are unfavorable for the pest.

According to the Idaho Department of Agriculture, a new insect was discovered in the summer of 2012. Commonly found in southern Europe, the elm seed bug (ESB) makes its debut in the western United States. Now, five years later, it has settled in Western Colorado.
The ESB does not pose a threat to human health, or damage trees or buildings. However, due to their large numbers and over wintering habits, they can cause a nuisance to your home or business. Much like it’s close relative, the box elder bug, they can cluster on a building’s exterior and even make their way inside.
For control measures make sure all doors, windows and thresholds are sealed. Any small crack is a possible entry point. An exterior perimeter treatment is also a great way to keep them under control. As always giving Maverick Pest Management a call is always a good way to get started. Grand Junction pest control, Maverick Pest Management (970) 443-4993.
