The Future of Pest Control
Pest control companies are always finding new and innovative ways to eliminate and protect people against insects, rodents, and other pests. Whether it’s developing safer, greener, and more effective pesticides to incorporating the latest technology into their services, the pest control industry is constantly developing new ways to stay one step ahead of pests. As advancements continue to be made in the science and technology behind effective pest management, here’s what things look like for the future of pest control.
We in the industry are always looking for new ways to incorporate the latest technology that increase effectiveness of our services and better serve the customer. Recent groundbreaking advancements in the way pests are controlled can help us target specific pests, reduce the risk of harming non targeted creatures, and all while minimizing our environmental impact. Here’s some of the latest innovations to keep an eye out for that are sure to have a big impact on the future of pest management.
Natural Pest Control with CO2
Traditional pest management has relied on eliminating pests by spraying toxic chemicals, but a safer alternative might soon replace it. In 2016 the EPA approved the use of CO2 in fumigation, which eliminates pests humanely and without the risk of potential soil or air contamination. The use of this safe, natural alternative demonstrates a major breakthrough in developing eco-friendly approaches to pest and rodent control.
Using Science to Target Specific Pests
While it may sound like something straight out of a science fiction novel, scientists have developed a new approach to managing certain insects. By replicating an insects hormones, insect growth regulators disrupt an insect’s growth cycle, preventing them from reaching maturity and reproducing. This allows exterminators to focus on specific threats and eliminate the threat of infestations.
But using hormones isn’t the only way science is developing new ways to fight pests. Scientists have found that by eliminating a gene in insects that helps them repel water and avoid sticking to surfaces, it can shorten their lifespan and make them more susceptible to traps and other preventative measures. While the technology is still being researched, it offers new opportunities for safe and more effective pest control.
Using the Latest Technology
Pest control specialists are finding new ways to incorporate the latest technology to keep you free of rodents. As infrared cameras have become less expensive and more widely available, many pest management companies are using them to track the movement of rodents. By analyzing their behavior and determining patterns, we can develop customized solutions that not only eliminate the threat but prevent long term infestations.
