 Integrated Pest management

About Nemesis Termite Baiting System
 

IPM strategy focuses on the long-term prevention or suppression of pest problems with minimum impact on human health, the environment, and non-target organisms. Preferred pest management techniques include encouraging naturally occurring biological control; using alternate plant species or varieties that resist pests; selecting pesticides with lower toxicity to humans or nontarget organisms; adopting cultivating, pruning fertilizing, or irrigation practices that reduce pest problems; and changing the habitat to make it incompatible with pest development.

 

Pesticides are used as a last resort when careful monitoring indicates that they are needed according to pre-established guidelines. When treatments are necessary, the least toxic and most target-specific pesticides are chosen. Implementing an integrated pest management program requires a thorough understanding of pests, their biology, environmental requirements, and natural enemies, as well as the establishment of a regular, systematic program for surveying pests, their damage, and other evidence of their presence.

 

IPM approaches problems with more than one technique.

  • OBSERVATION involves monitoring, identifying, and determining 

  • The OBJECTIVE is to make the environment hostile to pests, i.e., reinforcing a physical barrier to push pests out with building materials or a repeller.

  • Reduce SOURCES of attractions such as food sources and hiding areas.

  • NON-CHEMICAL include using traps and other physical elimination devices.

  • Appropriate and approved PESTICIDES for targeted pests.


 

Pest are Biologic Pollutants that Threaten Human Wellbeing

Within the field of IPM are bacteria, molds, viruses, dust mites, cockroaches, and pollen. Allergic reactions are the result of repeated exposure and immunologic sensitization to particular biologic allergens that can be life-threatening. Biologic pollutants that trigger asthma include cockroaches, house dust mites, pets organic residues, mold and mildew. These allergens become part of the indoor air pollutant.

Pest Management in Malaysia is Licensed

The Pest Management Industry is highly regulated as it involves extensive usage of chemicals and related substances. Pest Control Operators, PCO must undergo thorough training, and certifications, and their operational qualification are audited by the Pesticide Board of Malaysia and governed under the Pest Control Act 1974 (amended 2004). Only an approved PCO can operate and provide pest management services to the industry, to homeowners, and to the commercial. 


 

Basic Strategies for Controlling Pest

 

Controlling RATS (Tikus)
  • Eliminate food sources with good sanitation, including proper storage & solid waste management

  • Eliminate breeding and nesting places (habitat denial) such as minimizing cluttering

  • Constructing rat-proofing structures such as sealing entry points

  • Early prevention program includes chemical treatment and trapping

 

Controlling COCKROACHES (Lipas)
  • Prevention with structural modifications

  • Sanitation by denying food, water, and shelter

  • Trapping that serves as a monitoring device

  • Chemical treatment to reduce population

 

Controlling FLEAS (Kutu)
  • Treating all pets and their environments 

  • Physical removal, as many fleas can be treated with vacuuming and high heat steam 

  • Outdoor cleanup such as mowing, decluttering, and removing organic debris

  • Chemical application to heavily infested source points

 

Controlling FLIES (Lalat)
  • Sanitation by denying food and breeding sites

  • Physical barriers through a physical barrier

  • Trapping using an Insect Light Trap

  • Chemical treatments such as Fogging and Baiting

 

Reducing Risk for Subterranean TERMITE (Anai) attack
  • Eliminate wood contact with the ground

  • Prevent moisture accumulation near the house foundation

  • Remove wood clutters from the foundation

  • Treated structured by a professional pest controller

 

Reducing the MOSQUITO (Nyamuk) population
  • Prevent breeding sites such as water retention, clogged gutters and water features

  • Organize a community-level control

  • Treat larvae and adults differently
