It doesn’t matter what industry you work in – pests do not discriminate when it comes to finding a new home. As long as your business offers food, water and shelter, they’ll happily take up residence. Once inside, they can spread diseases, cause structural damage, ruin products or supplies, and, ultimately, have a negative impact on your bottom line. That’s why it’s important to understand the elements that go into a successful pest control program.
The best way to keep pests from wreaking havoc is to implement an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program. If you already have a plan in place, that’s excellent news – you’re on the right track. Now, you need to take a closer look at how effective your IPM program really is.
To help you evaluate your IPM program, we developed an IPM Quality Self-Assessment tool. By answering multiple choice questions related to elements of your plan like sanitation, exclusion and reliance on chemicals, you’ll learn where you stand on a 50-point IPM quality scale.
Our assessment will also help you better understand the pest management processes in place at your business and give you a better idea of the next steps you, your clients, suppliers and other key partners should take to develop and foster an effective IPM program.
If pest management is a crucial part of your business operations, treat this self-assessment as one more step that contributes to your overall efforts.
Are you an Expert in IPM Quality? Proficient in IPM Quality? Or are you a Novice? Take the self-assessment to find out.
