QCS' Low Tox Approach
Recognizing the growing trend of environmentally conscious Americans, and the need for all industries to do their part to reduce the impact toxic elements have on our environment, Quality Control Services began to research a new Low-Toxic approach to pest management. In 1990 we began our own investigation of the products and applications being developed for use in commercial and residential settings. Slowly adapting many of the Low-Toxic approaches and identifying the most successful methods of providing Integrated Pest Management (IPM) services. There are many pest control companies, but unfortunately very few are utilizing these very effective procedures and means to controlling pest populations.
Research and Solutions
We have encouraged tremendous research in the field and the evolution of less toxic alternatives. Quality Control Services is committed to informing our customers of these alternatives. The main two chemicals we use are natural pyrethrums, which are derived from botanicals (such as chrysanthemums) and other natural elements; and boron base baits (Boric Acids).
Things you Need to Know
IPM is the approach to pest control that utilizes regular monitoring to determine if and when treatments are needed, and implores physical, mechanical, cultural, biological, and educational tactics to keep pest populations low enough to prevent intolerable damage or annoyance. It has provided principles and guidelines for environmentally safe manipulation of pests, and has served as the framework for theory and application of all suppressive tactics for pests.
In certain situations, the use of toxic pesticides may appear to be the only solution to a problem. In our experience this reasoning is only occasionally justified. More often, toxic pesticides are being used because people are not aware of reliable Low-Toxic alternatives.
