About Our Services

  There are not too many people that are not familiar with some kind of pest problem. Pest Control is a year round battle, because there are so many different kinds of pests. Some are nuisance pests, and some do harm to you or your belongings. At Pestek Pro, we study the biology and habits of different pests, so we can determine the best strategy for control. We also understand that not everybody is alike, therefore requiring different strategies and methods to control pests with your unique needs in mind. We offer both commercial and residential services, and we offer very flexible service plans to fit your specific needs.Click the links below to learn more about some of our services



Itergrated Pest Management (IPM)

    Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. This information, in combination with available pest control methods, is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment.
    The IPM approach can be applied to both agricultural and non-agricultural settings, such as the home, garden, and workplace. IPM takes advantage of all appropriate pest management options including, but not limited to, the judicious use of pesticides. In contrast, organic food production applies many of the same concepts as IPM but limits the use of pesticides to those that are produced from natural sources, as opposed to synthetic chemicals.

IPM is not a single pest control method but, rather, a series of pest management evaluations, decisions and controls. In practicing IPM, those who are aware of the potential for pest infestation follow a four-tiered approach. The four steps include:
•Set Action Thresholds
Before taking any pest control action, IPM first sets an action threshold, a point at which pest populations or environmental conditions indicate that pest control action must be taken. Sighting a single pest does not always mean control is needed. The level at which pests will either become an economic threat is critical to guide future pest control decisions.
•Monitor and Identify Pests
Not all insects, weeds, and other living organisms require control. Many organisms are innocuous, and some are even beneficial. IPM programs work to monitor for pests and identify them accurately, so that appropriate control decisions can be made in conjunction with action thresholds. This monitoring and identification removes the possibility that pesticides will be used when they are not really needed or that the wrong kind of pesticide will be used.
•Prevention
As a first line of pest control, IPM programs work to manage the lawn, or indoor space to prevent pests from becoming a threat. For example, raking up leaves, keeping the grass cut, taking the trash out, and moving wood piles away from the structure. These control methods can be very effective and cost-efficient and present little to no risk to people or the environment.
•Control
Once monitoring, identification, and action thresholds indicate that pest control is required, and preventive methods are no longer effective or available, IPM programs then evaluate the proper control method both for effectiveness and risk. Effective, less risky pest controls are chosen first, including highly targeted chemicals, such as pheromones to disrupt pest mating, or mechanical control, such as trapping or weeding. If further monitoring, identifications and action thresholds indicate that less risky controls are not working, then additional pest control methods would be employed, such as targeted spraying of pesticides. Broadcast spraying of non-specific pesticides is a last resort.
