banner (20)

When people think about pest control and pest management, they usually think of it in terms of calling the exterminator every time that they find pests, or signs of pests, in their home. While yes, as pest control professionals we can’t argue that that strategy won’t work — but did you know that there is an easier way?

As a home pest control product manufacturer we know a thing or two about pest control — including the fact that it is cheaper, and more effective, for you to take your own preventative measures than to simply rely on an exterminator.

The act of exterminating pest populations while also planning for the prevention of future pest populations is known as integrated pest management — and in today’s blog, we are going to discuss in more detail what integrated pest management is, how our home pest control products can help, and why you should be doing it.

What Is Integrated Pest Management?

Integrated pest management is a term that is thrown around a lot, but it is not often that people really know what it means. The University of California Agriculture and Natural Resources department defines it best as “an ecosystem-based strategy that focuses on long-term prevention of pests or their damage through a combination of techniques such as biological control, habitat manipulation, modification of cultural practices, and use of resistant varieties.”

Essentially, in its simplest form, integrated pest management is a pest control strategy that looks at the big picture to ensure that not only are the pests driven away, but they are also deterred from coming back — and our home and indoor pest control products are a key part of integrated pest management.

How Can Sniff ‘n’ Spray Products Help?

In integrated pest management strategies, it is important to control the environment (or take back control if there is already an infestation). This can be done by eliminating food sources, habitats, and sealing off potential entrances that can be utilized by the pest — but simply controlling the environment will not always help.

That is where Sniff ‘n’ Stop home pest control products come in to play. Our products are specifically designed to drive away existing pest populations and ensure that once they are gone that they do not come back. By combining a complex blend of essential oils into a negatively-charged polymer that attracts the positively-charged pest, our products trigger a biological response from the pest that warns others of its species to stay away. In doing so, our home pest control products can naturally drive away and prevent the manifestation of future infestations.
