A traditional pest management approach  typically involves an exterminator using harsh pesticides to eliminate the pest problem, regardless of the specifics of the case or any harmful effects these pesticides may have on the environment. Their strategy is to place pesticides wherever pests could possibly go. In order for this method to be successful, the pests must come in direct contact with the applied pesticide.

Assured Environments, the leading pest management company in the Tri-state area, uses Green Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques instead of the traditional outdated approach. Some of the main differences in our IPM methods include:

  • Limited Use of Pesticides: Instead of relying exclusively on harmful, toxic chemicals, Assured Environments trains all technicians to be proficient in the most eco-friendly treatment options and instructs them to use pesticides only when absolutely necessary.

  • Prevention: Assured Environments understand how costly and disruptive an infestation can be for a business. Therefore, we work on implementing measures such as caulking and sealing small, hard-to-see entry points to prevent insects and rodents from getting into your facilities. We work with our clients to inspect their facility, offer suggestions on preventative measures and help them implement those measures.

  • Specific Area Targeting: The technicians at Assured Environments focus on specific areas where pests are known to live and breed, not just where they might enter or populate in the future.

  • Eco-Friendly and Sustainable: All of our methods can be tailored for LEED or GreenShield certification. It is our belief that our customers should never have to choose between harming the environment and keeping their business pest free. We work to solve pest problems in the most environmentally safe way possible.

  • Human-Friendly: Harsh pesticides can be harmful to anyone on the property. Our Green IPM methods reduce risks of toxic exposure to pesticides as opposed to traditional approaches where pesticides are often excessively applied.

IPM is not a single pest management method, but rather a series of pest management evaluations, decisions and controls. We work to achieve the following:

  • Diagnosis the problem

  • Track and monitor pest behavior on your property

  • Design a customizable plan of action

  • Offer solutions that are environmentally-friendly and cost-effective

Not only does Assured Environments employ extremely skilled exterminators, but we also have trained full-time entomologists on staff who understand insect and rodent breeding and living habits. With our skilled team and remarkable number of years and experience in the industry, Assured Environments has been able to create a unique IPM approach that works for all of our commercial pest management clients.

The main goal of the Green IPM system is to create eco-friendly, cost-effective and sustainable solutions to permanently end your property’s pest problems.
