Risk & Prevention
Pest Risk Factors in Atlanta Georgia
In times past, companies then made a habit of spraying heavy amounts of pesticide indoors and insisted that homes be serviced every month. However the industry began to change and improve. Waterhouse adopted the industries new approach, the IPM (Integrated Pest Management) approach to pest management. Included in Integrated Pest Management was the method of recommending ways to reduce pest harborage areas, improve sanitation, and stop pest before they entered the home. Applying necessary pesticide to the exterior, the crawl space, and the attic areas would intercept the pest’s activity before they entered the living areas. And we utilize crack & crevice methods of application.
These measures generally make it unnecessary to make monthly visits to the property. Monthly visits are more costly to the consumer. Additionally, with increasing economic burdens making it necessary for two income households, it became inconvenient for the homeowner to take time away from their work to meet the technicians for their service.
Additionally, the products and methods of applying products are more environmentally friendly with Integrated Pest Management. We make available to our customers the entire line of “Mother Earth Products”. So it is no longer necessary for our technicians to apply the heavy and offensive sprays around the baseboards. Instead we utilize crack & crevice methods of application.
