Terminix Canada employs a pest management method called integrated pest management (IPM). An effective IPM strategy is composed of four unique sections: prevention, observation, intervention, and exclusion.
While the first three stages are fairly straight-forward, many people are unaware that exclusion, or employing preventative pest and animal control measures to eliminate potential problems before they occur, is a crucial part of any pest and animal control program.
Pest exclusion is designed to keep pests and wildlife out of your home before they’re even a problem. Pest exclusion methods range from temporary solutions (such a sprays and deterrents), to permanent pest management solutions that require no further attention beyond the initial implementation (such as vent covers).
With Terminix Canada’s unique combination of sanitation, pest extermination (when required), and pest exclusion, your home will remain a pest-free zone for the foreseeable future.
We’ll work with you to determine the best method of pest control to keep pests and animals out. Our goal is find solutions that are effective, but require as little maintenance as possible. This can include structural modifications which deter nests and roosting, to covers and nets that keep pests out, to chemical sprays that act as short-term deterrents.
We recommend preventative pest control methods to our customers, especially when it comes to animal control. Exclusion often requires relatively small changes that can make a big difference in stopping a problem before it occurs, eliminating the need for more expensive pest extermination treatments down the road.
