Integrated Pest Management, IPM
On The Fly Pest Solutions is a leading pest control company which implements IPM principles to provide effective pest management while minimizing the negative impacts on the ecosystem.
When it comes to pest control, finding both an effective and sustainable approach is essential! Traditional pest control methods often involve the indiscriminate use of harmful chemicals, causing damage to the environment, human health, and non-target species.
However, an alternative approach, called Integrated Pest Management (IPM), offers a more sustainable and environmentally friendly solution.
What is Integrated Pest Management?
Integrated Pest Management is an innovative and comprehensive approach that focuses on the long-term prevention and management of pests. It incorporates a combination of practices such as biological control, habitat manipulation, education, and monitoring. The goal is to control pests while minimizing the use of chemical pesticides.
Why Choose On The Fly?
Here are a few reasons why On The Fly Pest opts for IPM protocols!
IPM focuses on reducing the use of pesticides and implementing alternative methods.
This approach minimizes the exposure of pesticides to the environment, preventing pollution of soil, water, and air.
Healthier and Safer
Traditional pest control methods often involve using chemical pesticides that can pose health risks to humans and animals. IPM techniques prioritize the health and safety of customers by minimizing pesticide exposure.
IPM is not just environmentally friendly: it is also economically viable. By preventing and managing pest issues proactively, IPM reduces the necessity for costly and extensive pest control treatments. This results in long-term savings for businesses and homeowners alike.
IPM focuses on targeting specific pests rather than employing a blanket pesticide application. This approach reduces unnecessary pesticide use and avoids harm to beneficial insects and other non-target species.
How Does It Work?
On The Fly Pest Solutions utilizes the following strategies and techniques as part of their IPM program:
Accurate identification of the pest species is crucial for effective pest management. Our technicians are trained to identify different pests and evaluate their behavior, life cycles, and specific weaknesses.
Monitoring and Thresholds
Regular monitoring is an essential component of IPM!
By continuously monitoring pest populations, the team can establish thresholds at which action should be taken. This ensures that interventions are timely and appropriate, reducing the need for excessive pesticide application.
IPM places emphasis on preventing pest issues before they occur. On The Fly Pest Solutions focuses on the implementation of preventive measures such as sealing entry points, removing food sources, and improving sanitation practices.
By addressing the root causes of pest problems, long-term control is achieved.

IPM is a collaborative effort that involves educating customers and promoting awareness.

Ken came out to help us with our ant problem today and was very thorough and polite. He explained a lot about ant behavior and the most effective ways to beat the little stinkers! I’m already seeing less of them in just 12 hours!
Great service that’s on time per agreed upon schedule. The communications staff and the service technicians are always willing to work around the customer’s schedule. Hats off to them!
Effective, responsible, knowledgeable, I have only good things to say about On the Fly Pest Solutions. I am a big fan of their preventative approach. (And the technicians always wear booties in the house, which is very respectful.). A+
