Broward County Integrated Pest Management

Florida Pest Control Center (FPCC) specializes in Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The CPO has completed the most current training available in urban pest management and pest control technology and is a graduate of the University of Florida’s Integrated Pest Management for Schools. He is specifically trained in IPM. FPCC believes that pesticide application should be used as the final tool in an effective pest management program. FPCC specializes in treatment programs for termites, bedbugs, roaches, and ants.

Our exterminators take a different, IPM, approach that integrates both preventive and corrective measures to avert significant problems with minimal risk or hazard to humans or their environments, balancing risks with desired outcomes. IPM is a flexible, dynamic strategy using both technological and management practices. A case requires periodic updating as more information is collected and processed. IPM programs have proven track records of significantly reducing the risks related to pesticides while improving the quality, health, and welfare of the environment. Sole reliance upon synthetic pesticides is a thing of the past. In the long-term, we all benefit from a healthier environment.

The benefits of IPM strategies begin with the economic advantages flowing from sustained development, increased productivity, and reduced pest damage. IPM reduces the need for pesticides by using several pest management methods. In turn, this approach reduces or eliminates issues related to pesticide residue and re-entry interval restrictions, and maintains or increases the cost-effectiveness of pest management programs.

IPM focuses upon corrective, preventative, and green solutions

IPM endorses the use of sustainable bio-based pest management alternatives. This type of pest control, by our exterminators, promotes sound structures and healthy plant life. By encouraging the adoption of more ecologically benign control tactics, the environmental risks associated with traditional pest management are greatly reduced. Air and ground water quality are preserved and the potential for their contamination is reduced. Non-target species are protected through reduced impact of pest management activities, as are workers, tenants, and the general public.

Also a part of IPM is FPCC’s focus on modern bedbug detection methods using forensic technologies. This is insecticide-free monitoring. Elimination is accomplished using minimal, if any, chemicals and reduced-risk chemicals when possible.
