Construction and Demolition IPM Rodent Control
New Construction and demolition projects can displace rodents and may cause an influx of rodent activity for surrounding neighbors around the worksite. Rodent control programs should be setup with a pest management professional prior to any demolition or construction work to prevent rodents from relocating to neighboring properties. Rodent baiting programs should be performed on a routine basis throughout all stages of demolition and construction work to ensure rodent populations remain under control. This will also prevent rodents from setting up newly constructed buildings and creating issues for the new homeowners and/or tenants.
What is IPM?
IPM is a multidisciplinary common-sense approach to pest control that promotes education to help resolve any potential sanitation or maintenance deficiencies to provide a more comprehensive pest management strategy. Elimination and reduction of shelter, food, and water is necessary to pressure rodent populations in the area and make our control efforts more effective. IPM reduces the number of rodenticides necessary at construction and demolition sites to achieve control. We provide integrated pest management (IPM) services for projects that may require sub-surface (catch-basins and sewers) baiting as well. Reports are be provided at the time of each service detailing activity levels, product usage, and any site-specific sanitation or maintenance recommendations to help prevent and control rodent infestations.
How to Prevent Rodents at your Worksite
- All trash should be contained in rodent-proof containers and emptied frequently to eliminate any potential food sources.
- Overgrown vegetation and any harborage areas should be removed from the site to eliminate potential nesting areas.
- Drainage issues should be corrected to prevent water sources at the site.
- Dumpster pickups should be more frequent to eliminate them from overflowing.
