How important are surveys or property pest audits? “What are free surveys”?
We do not follow the common gimmicks of providing free surveys, as we believe that anything provided free of cost is not valued or respected.

Can Pests be completely eradicated or eliminated? Is a pest-free world possible?
No! Complete extermination, elimination of pests is not possible. These creatures (pests) have their own survival mechanism and are created to exist is this world. Therefore, the stress today is on “pest management” and not just pest control. Pest management is aimed at managing one’s facility / premise at the lowest level possible for any pest infestation. Pest control treatments need to be supported by good hygiene / sanitation practices.

What is IPM or Integrated Pest Management?
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an approach to controlling pests in safer, more effective, longer-lasting ways. When you use IPM, you

  • Understand a pest's identity and habits so non-toxic, preventative measures can be used first
  • Use a combination of different tactics for better effectiveness
  • Use least-toxic chemicals, if any.
  • As pest management professionals IPM is what we follow today, for all our programs.

Is it true, that if “X” quantity of insecticide is good then “2X” is better?
No. Certainly not. This is a dangerous myth and can result in greater harm than any benefit. Manufacturers of insecticides provide guidelines for use, particularly the concentrations of insecticides and their dosages in a premise. These are certified by the Central Insecticide Board and other governing bodies and cannot be changed as per one’s own wish. We strictly adhere to the insecticide manufacturer’s guidelines, always keeping in mind the safety of people, property and the environment. Excessive use of insecticide can lead to pests developing immunity/resistance towards them, therefore causing a major outbreak of infestation.
