Sustainable Pest Management - Working with nature, not against it.
When making decisions regarding pest control, homeowners and property managers face pressures of government regulations and public perceptions of pesticide usage. Addressing these concerns Debug Pest Control, a local pest management company, is leading the way with implementing Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs and the usage of organic products in Southern New England.
IPM pinpoints the source of a problem and then determines the low risk, effective tactics. Debug Green's control strategies often include physical exclusion of the pest, removal of harborage sites, habitat modification, and monitoring. When chemical treatments are required, products with the least toxicity are selected and treatments are directed with attention to remote locations and seasonal timing to reduce unnecessary pesticide usage.
This program focuses on integrating thorough inspections with non-chemical products with an emphasis on pest exclusion. The Debug Green program keeps their clients involved by educating the importance of sanitization and preventing conducive conditions. To ensure efficient results Debug is dedicated to knowledge and research on the behavior and biology of pests, modern treatment tactics, and current environmental issues. When product application is necessary Debug Green uses EcoSMART products that contain organic ingredients and natural insecticides. These products are considered minimum and reduced risk by the EPA. The vision of Debug Green is to offer the most efficient, long-term control while using the lowest-risk methods, working with nature, not against it.
Integrated Pest Management (IPM):
Debug Green strongly advocates the use of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) as part of any regular service program. An IPM program consists of a cycle of inspecting, identifying, monitoring, evaluating and selection of appropriate control methods. Once a pest problem is resolved, the regular service program is designed to prevent future pest infestations and possible entry into the home or business with minimal impact to the customer.
The Debug Green 4-Step Service Plan:
- Inspect the Property - Perform a thorough inspection prior to any treatments. Identify any pest problems, and any areas conducive to pest infestation in and around the home or business.
- Perform the Service - Follow all of the appropriate conventional service treatment protocols creating a pest-free environment.
- Customer Communication - Discuss and explain all issues identified during the inspection. Provide a written service report of all treatments provided, what the customer can expect to occur, and what corrective measures, if any, the customer needs to take. Describe the benefits of EcoSMART technology. Inform the customer of their next scheduled service date.
- Follow-up - Proactive follow-up is the key to building great customer relations.

EcoSMART's botanical products are as effective as conventional pesticides, providing both quick knockdown and control against a wide variety of indoor and outdoor pests.
