One Twenty inc prides itself on developing a pest control program that meets your specific needs, whether a single residence homeowner or a Property Manager of a 400 unit community. All of our technicians are state certified and have undergone extensive training. We believe that pest management is a process, and not a one-time event.
One Twenty Inc applies the principles of Integrated Pest Management, Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. This information, in combination with available pest control methods, is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment.
IPM is not a single pest control method but, rather, a series of pest management evaluations, decisions and controls.
The four steps include:
Set Action Thresholds – Before taking any pest control action, IPM first sets an action threshold, a point at which pest populations or environmental conditions indicate that pest control action must be taken. Sighting a single pest does not always mean control is needed.
Monitor and Identify Pests – Not all insects, weeds, and other living organisms require control. This monitoring and identification removes the possibility that pesticides will be used when they are not really needed or that the wrong kind of pesticide will be used.
Prevention – As a first line of pest control, IPM programs work to manage the exterior perimeter and indoor space to prevent pests from becoming a threat. These control methods can be very effective and cost-efficient and present little to no risk to people or the environment.
Control – Once monitoring, identification, and action thresholds indicate that pest control is required, and preventive methods are no longer effective or available, IPM programs then evaluate the proper control method both for effectiveness and risk.
