Integrated pest management (IPM)

IPM stands for integrated pest management, a process that is vital to ensure the safety of food. A highly effective pest control method, IPM is prevention focused and uses the minimum quantity of biocides possible, which helps reduce the impact on the environment.


    Rodent control

    We work with you to inspect your location(s) for traces or the presence of rats and other vermin and any possible nesting sites or access points. Depending on your specific situation, we formulate a plan to ensure your business premises and procedures are completely pest proof.

    If necessary, we implement a range of measures, from providing general hygiene and prevention advice to installing traps, bait boxes, etc.

    We continue to inspect, monitor and report regularly and at a high level , always in accordance with the applicable IPM standards.
