4 Innovations In Pest Control Technology

March 26, 2018

Pest control is a complicated balancing act. On the one hand, the exterminator's job is to eliminate pests and keep them from coming back. On the other hand, you don't want to hurt non-target insects and animals, and you want as little impact on the surrounding environment as possible. Rodent and bed bug exterminators in Jacksonville, FL, are aware of this contradiction and are always developing new methods of pest control.

1. Bio-Rational Materials

Pest Control

Many advances in pest control are towards making the least impact possible on the environment. One example of this is Integrated Pest Management. IPM is a method of pest control that uses proactive tactics, such as an emphasis on maintenance and targeted cleaning, to keep pests away so there isn't an infestation, to begin with. Similarly, bio-rational materials are products that are low on toxicity and environmental impact. Pheromones, for example, have shown to be very effective at luring insects away from their nests and towards a treatment zone where they make contact with the insecticide. This makes it easier to limit the placement of the insecticide to a smaller area.

2. Advancements in Green Products

While the emphasis on green technology is not new, its development has only improved over time. As demand has increased, the demand for safer, less hazardous materials and the effectiveness and safety of green alternatives to traditional means of extermination have only increased.

3. Pest Birth Control

Professionals have used birth control in the past to manage pigeon populations, but have not yet had success using it on rodents. Now, it seems, that time has arrived. Within the next few years, expect birth control to be used as a means to control rat and mouse populations, without affecting any non-target creatures.

4. Fly Baits

One of the most promising innovations in flying insect control is similar to the flypaper of old: an insecticide sticker panel that attracts and kills several species of flying pests, but releases no odors or fumes, and can stay effective for up to 7 months indoors.

It's encouraging that so many advancements have been made over the last several years so you know that when you call a rodent or bed bug pest control in Jacksonville, FL, their methods will not only be effective, they'll also be safe.
