Ant Solutions with Organic Products vs. IPM Methodology

Pest control for ants using organic methods is more than just a pest service; it’s a pest “management” plan. Technicians using IPM, (Integrated Pest Management) start with an understanding of the IPM philosophy for pest management and develop protocols for solutions to problems like those posed by ants. Organizations like EcoWise Certified offer both product guidelines and strict standards in administering organic and lower risk assessed non-organic products.  A professional path exists for individual technicians must be certified in order to provide this highly structured pest service. You can expect your EcoWise Certified Technician to use pest prevention and non-chemical techniques to effectively manage ants and avoid recurring problems. Other IPM certifications are offered outside the pest control industry by Green Shield. The National Pest Management Association supports the GreenPro certification. Hearts IPM certificate It’s important to understand that simply using organic products does not equate to a great pest service. Organic products can be used as irresponsibly as non-organic products. That is why finding IPM certified pest control companies is so important. Even for those of us who decide to “Go Green” and use organic pest service, sometimes ants are so persistent that having a choice of non-organic pesticides is helpful. Perhaps less overall pesticide will be needed with a synthetic pesticide. That is another area where using a company with an certification based approved list of pesticides is important. Research will have been done in advance to check for potentially harmful impacts to the individual and the environment from the short and long term use of the product. Therefore, consider that using a combination of both traditional and organic products may be wise, if the overall impact is less acute and/or long term exposure for yourself or the environment. Within the IPM field, new methods are being found to not only address pest ants but to address the ant colony source of the pest infestation.
