Wild LifeWildlife consists of all the wild animals that are not domesticated or used for research purposes. Wildlife and the environment can be severely impacted if we continue using harmful pesticides at an alarming rate, through direct or indirect applications. Therefore, our trained technicians at Pest In The City employ different methods and products which are not harmful to the environment and wildlife.
We do NOT make use of harmful chemicals and pesticides. Many harmful pesticides can cause cancer, endocrine disruption, reproductive effects, neurotoxicity, kidney and liver damage, birth defects and developmental changes in a wide range of species.
To ensure our ecosystem remains healthy, most of our pest controlling methods include - trapping animal pests and releasing them in the wildlife, using safe and certified chemicals in a controlled manner to control insect pests, and using our newly formulated products that have undesirable effects on the environment and wildlife. We strive for excellence, and hence, our team of trained professionals constantly conduct scientific research to develop new ways to control pests without damaging the ecosystem.
Furthermore, we believe in the universal message, i.e. ‘prevention is better than cure’. Thus, we develop products that help you prevent the invasion of various animal pests such as skunks, gophers, birds, etc. These products can be described as some sort of physical barriers or traps. Trapping has been used for capturing or controlling animal pests for thousands of years. Traps can be of two types - one, which captures the animal, the other one, traps but kills the animal. We believe in capture and release ideology. Hence, the traps we make use of helps us capture the animal so that we can release it in the wild where it belongs.
Crawling insects such as cockroaches can also be easily trapped on sticky boards that are lured with specially formulated slabs. In addition, different traps can be used for various insects. Trapping insects not only helps in controlling them but also acts as a sentinel for new infestations. Traps attract insects due to its color or odor. These traps are great for removing a large number of bugs.
Our Integrated Pest Management program relies on intrinsic knowledge of insect and animal pests, their life cycles, preventative measures, manual and biological controls, and chemical or organic pesticide intervention. With this systematic approach, we try to eliminate or drastically reduce the use of pesticides, and minimize the toxicity and exposure of harmful products. To control a multitude of pest problems, we use a variety of methods and techniques, including structural, cultural and biological strategies.
We regularly organize site inspections and trapping to monitor and determine the types and infestation levels of pests at each site. Information collected after every inspection or treatment includes records of pests identified, their population size, distribution, prevention, and the action that needs to be taken. Our Integrated Pest Management program obligates us to use chemicals as the last resort. This helps us utilizing the least-toxic materials because we care for our environment and the wildlife as a whole!
