Integrated Pest Management (IPM)


The purpose of using IPM in pest management system is to promote a feasible and long-lasting pest management process in the urban environment with no or limited environmental consequences. In IPM, we concentrate on inspection, maximizing the efforts on prevention, rather than cure. We also emphasize on protecting human, non-target animal life, landscapes and environment. Most importantly, we promote responsible use of pesticide, use chemicals when they are absolutely required.

How does it work?

In IPM, inspection will be the key activity. It helps to gather important information which can after that contribute to the decision-making stage. During the inspection, our experienced PMPs will help to identify pests and source of breeding. For pests that are less common and difficult to be identified by naked eyes will then be brought back and refer to our entomologists. The management options may vary according to species.

Why is it reliable?

The choice of treatment method depends on a variety of factors, such as pest species, infestation level, cost effectiveness, areas to be treated and customers’ wish. To provide a better quality of pest management treatment, basic information and guidelines are often given to our clients. Furthermore, necessary advice will also be provided to clients to prevent future pest infestation.

  • Environmentally friendly
  • Reduce exposure to chemicals
  • Protect non-target organism
  • IPM is usually time-consuming (as we need to ID pest species and conduct appropriate treatment methods to the site. This is different from conventional treatment method where one chemical is used for the control of various pests)
  • Chemical treatment might not be involved.
